BME Students Attend BMES Annual Conference in San Antonio, TX

On October 23-25, 2014, 10 biomedical engineering students attended the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) Annual Meeting in San Antonio TX. At the conference, six students presented their research which was performed as part of the TCNJ Mentored Undergraduate Research Experience (MUSE). Another student presented research that was completed as part of a NSF Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) program at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL. Three members of the TCNJ BMES Student Chapter attended chapter development activities. All the students attended presentations or poster sessions in all areas of biomedical engineering research and additionally participated in various professional development activities such as resume reviews and graduate school presentations.

The School of Engineering is proud of the extra-curricular effort and pursuit of academic excellence shown by the students who attended the conference.
