Research Opportunities

Biomedical Engineering undergraduate students frequently participate in undergraduate research. Current students—regardless of career interests—are strongly encouraged to explore faculty information and seek out opportunities to work with faculty whose research interests them.

Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Research Symposium

The department sponsors a poster symposium every semester on the last day of class in the BME Building Lobby and Seminar Room. This event is open to all industry and clinical partners, and affiliated faculty, staff, and students. The Undergraduate Research Symposium showcases the exciting work accomplished by our students over the semester and provides an opportunity to compete for cash awards in the spring each year. See photos from our latest symposium on Flickr.
