Departmental Seminar Series
Each semester, the Biological Engineering Department invites speakers from around the country to talk at the weekly seminar series. This is a great opportunity to meet professors from other institutions and acquired a broader perspective on the types of research and approaches within the realm of biological engineering.
Industrial Seminar Series
These seminars are organized by the Graduate Student Board and occur once a month. The speakers typically work for biotechnology firms or have a new perspective on biological engineering.
