Advisory Board

The Biomedical Engineering Advisory Board was founded in 1989. The board includes 12 members who are alumni and friends of the Biomedical Engineering program from a variety of career paths, including industry, academia and medical school. The board advises the program on academic, research, and service matters. It considers matters such as recruiting, curriculum development, course content, laboratory equipment, program enhancement, and student placement. Two meetings are held annually. The fall meeting is held the day after the senior honors banquet, typically a Friday in late October or early November. An important service provided by the board members at this meeting is to hold mock interviews for our seniors to help prepare them as they begin their post-graduate careers. The spring meeting is held in early May and is combined with the college's senior design conference. Board members attend the seniors' project presentations and provide feedback on the quality of the projects. One role that they perform during the fall is to act as interviewers in a "mock interview" segment of the Biomedical Senior Seminar course. During the spring meeting, they provide feedback on the students' senior design projects and they also interact directly with students to provide feedback about their experiences with the program's courses, faculty and other elements in an anonymous manner.
