PURDUE UNIVERSITY

Mission


Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) is an internationally recognized technical society under IEEE, servicing the largest community of biomedical engineers in the world. The mission of EMBS is to focus on the development and application of engineering concepts and methods to provide new solutions to medical and biological problems. Its members apply concepts and methods of physical engineering and life sciences to issues in the rapidly expanding fields of medicine and biology. Since 1952, international EMBS has incubated global leaders and problem solvers from a host of backgrounds capable of addressing modern challenges.

The Purdue student chapter was founded in September 2015 and is the youngest committee within Purdue IEEE. It consists of a group of dedicated students who share a common passion for transforming and revolutionizing future medicine and healthcare. This society exposes its members to the people, practices, information, and ideas necessary for success in biomedical and related careers. It regularly conducts social events, seminars and tours through assistance of faculty and industry supporters; befitting a technical society, Purdue IEEE EMBS members diligently contribute to research initiatives, participate in competitions, attend conferences, and organize technical workshops for the cultivation of shared knowledge.
