About BMES

The Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) at WVU is dedicated to encouraging the development, dissemination, integration, and utilization of knowledge in biomedical engineering. Its leading goal is to foster the development of relationships among students, faculty, industry and clinicians while allowing its members to explore professional opportunities within biomedical fields.

Student Chapter

The Biomedical Engineering Society student chapter (BMES) at WVU was founded in 2016 by the first graduating class of Biomedical Engineers from WVU. Our organization aims to allow for Biomedical Engineers and related fields to reach out to other students, faculty, employers, and the community. This is done through community service and outreach events, presentations, social events, fundraising, and providing resources and opportunities to our student members. 

Faculty Advisor: Cerasela Zoica Dinu

What is a Biomedical Engineer?

Biomedical engineers bridge the medical and engineering disciplines providing an overall enhancement of health care. Biomedical engineers design and build innovative devices (artificial limbs and organs, new-generation imaging machines, advanced prosthetics and more) and improve processes for genomic testing, or making and administering drugs.

Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES)

Vision and Mission:
Vision: to serve as the world's leading society of professionals devoted to developing and using engineering and technology to advance human health and well-being.

Mission: to build and support the biomedical engineering community, locally, nationally and internationally, with activities designed to communicate recent advances, discoveries, and inventions; promote education and professional development; and integrate the perspectives of the academic, medical, governmental, and business sectors.
