Biomedical Engineering Student Organizations

Biomedical engineering majors can participate in student organizations specific to their majors. Students gain leadership and professional experience.  

The Biomedical Engineering Honor Society is a student-led group dedicated to bringing biomedical engineers and students closer together to advance their knowledge and potential, as well as recognize the accomplishments of their peers. This organization may also assist students with research opportunities as they progress through the undergraduate curriculum.

The society is dedicated to cultivating interest in all areas of bioengineering. The group hosts various events, including faculty speakers, to expose students to a variety of bioengineering research topics, and allow students to gain hands-on experience through independent projects. Their hope is to encourage development of intellectual diversity, paramount for success in today's interdisciplinary academic and work environments.

The Rutgers Biomedical Engineering (BME) Society provides academic, professional, career development, and social events for BME students while promoting the field of Biomedical Engineering to the general public. The society also works closely with the BME department to effectively and efficiently solve issues facing the BME community. Membership is open to current Rutgers BME undergraduates.

The BioEngineering Student Society (BESS) is a student-run organization dedicated to uniting graduate students interested in the field of biomedical engineering. BESS members plan academic, social, and professional events to enhance a sense of community within the biomedical engineering department. 

The Rutgers University chapter of e-NABLE are students with a passion to create 3D-printed prosthetic upper limb devices for children and adults in need.

Get Involved

The School of Engineering provides many opportunities for students to become involved in activities outside the classroom. More than 40 engineering-specific student organizations offer opportunities for leadership, friendship, and exploration.
