The Ohio State University Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES at Ohio State) provides a gateway for Biomedical Engineers in the University to reach out to other students, faculty and prospective employers. BMES at Ohio State does this by providing presentations, social events, workshops, communications and many other resources to both undergraduate and graduate students. In this way, BMES at Ohio State is the central organization for students interested in Biomedical Engineering and Biomedical Engineers.

What is Biomedical Engineering?
The Biomedical Engineers at The Ohio State University are engaging, intellectual problem-solvers of a different class. Unlike other engineering disciplines, biomedical engineers are focused on one of the most complex and unknown environments that face individuals: the human body. The problems dealt by the human body often are not simple cause and effect relationships; instead, they are a product of multiple complex and often unknown relationships. As a result, the integration of mechanical, electrical, chemical and material science engineering backgrounds is required to fully understand the problems and design solutions to fix them. Biomedical engineers utilize tools from these engineering backgrounds with a functional understanding of the biological systems. They are capable of designing and providing complete solutions to the increasingly complex problems that arise within the human body.
