Student Activities

Undergraduate Organizations

Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES)
The Biomedical Engineering Society provides students with activities which strengthen their understanding of and interest in Biomedical Engineering. The Society provides students with literature, field trips, films, and guest lecturers, which provide them with a “resource center” concerning such vital areas as career opportunities and graduate study in Biomedical Engineering.

Alpha Eta Mu Beta
Alpha Eta Mu Beta is the honor society for biomedical engineering. The society promotes an understanding of the profession, and recognizes and encourages excellence within the field. The purpose of the society is to bring into closer union and to mark in an outstanding manner those biomedical engineers who have manifested a deep interest and marked ability in their chosen life work so as to promote an understanding of their profession and to develop its members professionally.

Undergraduate Research Programs

Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)
The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) assists Boston University undergraduates who are interested in conducting research projects under the supervision and guidance of BU faculty members. Students may participate in the program for academic credit, for a stipend, or on a volunteer basis. All UROP research projects must be of a caliber that is worthy of academic credit, and of a duration of at least one semester (or ten weeks during the summer).

Summer Term Alumni Research Scholars (STARS)
The College of Engineering undergraduates engaged in faculty-mentored full-time research experiences during the summer may apply for the STARS program.  STARS participants will receive 10 or 12 weeks of housing in a Boston University residence hall OR $2500 towards off-campus housing costs.  To be eligible, students must receive a weekly stipend from an engineering faculty mentor to participate in full-time research during the summer (summer courses are not allowed). Applications are due March 5, 2010.
