Student Organizations

Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES)

The Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) student chapter at Colorado State University is a professional society open to all students interested in the vast field of bioengineering. BMES is open to both grad students and undergrads of all majors. 

About BMES

This year, BMES is hosting our first ever Biomed Boot Camp, where 7th and 8th graders from across Fort Collins will visit our workshops on bi0medical engineering, allowing the students to gain a hands-on experience and see what biomed is all about! 

BMES is accepting the first 30 participants into this FREE program! To sign up fill out this form:

We’ll have a number of activities, including Arduino EKG, Magnetic Slime, Artery Clot Experiment, and a Muscle Car Demonstration!


Event Details:
October 12 
8:00am – 12:00pm
Scott Bioengineering Building 


We also still need volunteers to help run this event! If you’re interested in volunteering, please sign up here!

Our Mission is to build and support the biomedical engineering community, locally, nationally and internationally, with activities designed to communicate recent advances, discoveries, and inventions; promote education and professional development; and integrate the perspectives of the academic, medical, governmental, and business sectors.

Our Industry Programs involve events that promote the students’ direct participation with industry, such as site tours of company facilities, and presentations given by industry members about their academic and professional journeys, and their respective companies. Our Social Programs are held with the goal of promoting friendly connection between our students in a fun, engaging arena, including events such as our Semester Kick-Off and our Group Study Nights.

To become more involved with the community, BMES CSU actively participates in outreach events that promote STEM fields by providing demonstrations and educating children about the fun in science and engineering, and devoting time to helping elderly members of the Fort Collins community

In order to support our events, BMES puts on numerous fundraiser events. Members who participate receive 3 raffle tickets for each fundraiser attended, and also will have their dues reduced for next semester by $5 per fundraiser. 

If you would like to help BMES fundraise, please check our calendar below and sign up for the event you want to help at using this form. 

We’re so glad you’re interested in BMES! Feel free to come check out one of our general meetings to see what we’re all about, or email us any questions you have.

Dues are $25 per semester and help BMES continue putting on all these cool events! In addition, with your dues you’ll get a BMES tee shirt, raffle tickets*, and priority information about certain events. 

Make sure to join our mailing list to get event reminders!

*Members get a raffle ticket at each meeting and three raffle tickets at each volunteer event. At the end of the semester, we pull a raffle ticket and give that person a cool prize – the more tickets you have in there the better chance you get the prize! 😀
