Biomedical Engineering Graduate Student Association

BMEGSA represents the interest of the graduate students to the faculty and administration of the BME department and facilitates networking and social interactions between students, administration, faculty and staff within the biomedical engineering department.

Biomedical Engineering Society

BMES promotes the profession of biomedical engineering through the organized effort of study, research and discussions of the fields of biomedical engineering, and the dissemination of knowledge thereby gained. The pillars of BMES are career awareness, professionalism and community service. The society holds bi-weekly meetings where professionals from companies, universities and hospitals come and share what biomedical engineering is like in their workplace. The goal of these meetings is to give members a sense of professionalism, teaching them how to act and dress in a professional setting. Additionally, the society provides opportunities for members to take part in community service activities such as Big Event and Relay for Life.

Engineering World Health

The Engineering World Health (EWH) mission is to inspire and mobilize the biomedical engineering community to improve the quality of health care in vulnerable communities of the developing world. They achieve this mission through innovation and effective alliances with great partners. Our chapter focuses on two main objectives: (1) developing new, low-cost devices for developing countries through sponsorship of senior design teams and research teams within the organization; and (2) building “kits” – low cost devices that have been developed by EWH chapters to be donated to the developing countries. Our chapter will meet at least once per month.

The International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE)  is a national organization dedicated to serving the scientific community of optics and photonics and advancing light-based technologies. Our chapter seeks to advance the visibility of the optical sciences at Texas A&M University by promoting events such as an optics journal club and regional conferences. Additionally, we seek to promote optics and photonics in the community through outreach events to K-12 students. Our chapter is also fortunate enough to be able to send 1-2 students per year to the national SPIE meeting and leadership conference in San Diego, CA. We are comprised of members from a variety of disciplines and areas of expertise.
