Biomedical Engineering Graduate Student Fair

You haven’t truly seen fall foliage until you’ve been through this area! Mid-October is the peek of fall foliage in Upstate NY. Much of the landscape is filled with vivid red, orange, and yellow trees.

The Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Rochester is hosting the first annual Biomedical Engineering Graduate Student Recruiting Fair on October 27th, 2017.  The Fair provides a venue for undergraduate students to learn and explore opportunities from regional colleges and universities that have graduate programs of interest to Biomedical Engineering students.   

Undergraduate students will have the opportunity to present their research in a special networking and poster session in the afternoon.  This is an ideal venue for you, if you participated in a REU, or if you recently presented a poster at the national BMES meeting in Phoenix.

This event is sponsored by:

The Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Rochester, Center for Medical Technology & Innovation, and the University of Rochester Chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society.
