Who We Are

We are Columbia University’s Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) chapter! Deciding to pursue a study in biomedical engineering can be a daunting proposition. Our organization is designed to make the process smoother. We bring together students of all levels within the field, as well as from related engineering disciplines.

Undergraduates who are interested in having a more interactive experience with the department and faculty are encourage to attend events and volunteer within the organization. Additionally, we run a mentorship program to facilitate the journey of becoming a biomedical engineer. Please check our calendar of events for information about our upcoming events, and we hope to see you soon!


We have several series of events, including Fun With Faculty and Riverside Chats, as well as other social mixers, career-oriented activities, and community outreach opportunities throughout the year.
