MIT's student chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society was founded in 1995 by three MIT seniors who saw the need for a student organization dedicated to providing students with research, employment, and educational opportunities in biomedical engineering.

The Biomedical Engineering Society serves to bring knowledge to its members concerning the advancement of biomedical research and technology in the medical field. It also exists as a forum for discussion among the MIT community who would like share ideas or opinions. Meetings shall promote interests through activities such as lectures, presentations, tours, and social activities.


Bioengineering (BioE) -- an APPLIED FIELD of engineering in biological materials and systems.

Biomedical Engineering (BME) -- an APPLIED FIELD of engineering in medicine and biomedicine, generally inter-disciplinary in nature.

Biological Engineering (BE) -- a new engineering DISCIPLINE grounded in biology, particularly mechanistic biology at the molecular and cellular levels, with novel applications to biomedicine as well as biotechnology; it also enables new approaches to fundamental discoveries in bioscience.
