To meet the diverse interests of bioengineering undergraduate and graduate students the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) hosts events to facilitate collaboration between industry partners, medical professionals and researchers. We often find there are many unmet needs and concepts that require the expertise of a bioengineer, however, many of these opportunities are missed.
Each fall, BMES hosts Pitch Night, a platform for potential PI’s to recruit students for projects and research opportunities. In these five-minute pitches, presenters pitched ideas in basic science, translational/clinical medicine and device engineering. The goal is to match graduate students with projects, provide research opportunities to upperclass undergraduates, and reveal potential avenues of study freshman and sophomores.
Students are able to learn more about cutting-edge research and industry opportunities, as well as the variety of research happening on this campus. Through this event we are able to help match students with opportunities that interest them and meet the needs of potential PI’s.
Watch a recap of the 2019 Pitch Night below.
At the CU Denver College of Engineering, Design and Computing, we focus on providing our students with a comprehensive engineering education at the undergraduate, graduate and professional level. Faculty conduct research that spans our five disciplines of civil, electrical and mechanical engineering, bioengineering, and computer science and engineering. The college collaborates with industry from around the state; our laboratories and research opportunities give students the hands-on experience they need to excel in the professional world.
