Plans for Next Semester

BMES Board

We are very excited for the spring semester, as we have a lot in the pipeline which we believe will benefit the BE community.

Our first event of the semester was a talk by Eric Esch, a PhD student in the Huh Lab.  He worked as an engineering consultant for MPR Associates, and spoke to members of the BE Mentoring program about important lessons he learned as an undergrad.  The talk took place on Thursday, 1/22/15 in Raisler Lounge from 12-1pm.

The mentoring program will continue to hold small events to encourage the mentor/mentee relationships that began in the first semester.  We are hoping to hold a spring semester kickoff event in the near future for members to reconnect with each other after the long winter break.

We will be launching a long-term professional development series beginning this semester.  The first event will be aimed at resume touch-ups and LinkedIn profiles.  If you’ve ever turned in a resume but thought to yourself, “this could use some work,” then be sure to keep an eye out for this event!  Follow-up events will likely focus on the various industries often pursued by BE graduates, ranging from healthcare consulting to medical devices to pharmaceuticals and more.

BMES will also continue to host our monthly BE Breakrooms, so be on the lookout for announcements as to when these events will be held!

If you have any questions or suggestions for events that you think BMES should hold, please feel free to contact us at pennbmes@gmail.com.  We would love to hear from you and help the BE community any way we can!
