New Year, New BMES!


So with the changes with the wiscmail this fall and spring BMES has a new email address too! Keep an eye out for an email from bmesuwmadison@gmail.com. If you do not receive the emails, please email me and I will add you to the list. We have comedy club this week and lab of the month next week so we are starting off the semester strong. There will also be a Cup night in two weeks, stay tuned for more details in emails and posts! Hope it has been a good year so far and best of luck with your classes this semester.

Busy Busy Busy

I know many of you have another round of midterms coming up in the next week or so but try and make some time for some fun BMES events. This week we have our classic BMESkating on Thursday night. Sign up under the calendar tab on the website. We also have Food pantry which I would like to get 7 people this week so we can represent BMES well. Meet n Greet will be tomorrow from 4 to 5 pm and is a great way to play some games, hangout or study with some free pizza as well. Hope to see you this week at all these awesome events.

Lasik Surgery

The biomedical technology surrounding LASIK eye surgery was introduced in 1973 enabling eye doctors to reshape corneal tissue with thermal damage in the form of the excimer laser. By 1998 the excimer laser was widely used for the LASIK surgery ablations a LASIK Houston specialists at Mann Eye Institute use the excimer laser today with great expertise. Mann Eye Institute has LASIK locations in Houston and Austin Texas.

Residential Solar Power

Biomedical engineers that are looking to expand their engineering horizon should look into the mechanics behind residential solar panels and how they are helping to leave a green footprint on the environment. Through solar power, we can truly clean up the environment and make the world a better place to live for future generations.

Encoder Products for Motion Feedback Control

University of Wisconsin - Madison engineering students are studying motion feedback control systems in an absolute encoder or rotary encoder used in such industries as oil and gas, and aerospace. These unique devices are engineered with top quality materials and provide students with a great learning opportunity. Just one more reason why the University of Wisconsin - Madison is a great choice for students eager to learn!
