Last month many of our Biomedical Engineering students visited the Great Lakes Biomedical Conference in Milwaukee. Biomedical engineers met to discuss emerging technologies and equipment, industry, and a variety of other topics. MSOE’s students were fortunate to have the opportunity to present some of their own work at the conference. This is an excellent way to put their ideas into the minds of industry professionals and make some networking contacts.

Senior Biomedical Engineering student Jenni Anderson had this to say about the experience:

“It was very exciting to be able to be involved with members of industry. They were all very informative and shared the enthusiasm of the students that were there. It was also great to interact with students from other campuses around the city. I learned about some new imaging and monitoring techniques that are being implemented in the field of biomedical engineering. It’s amazing how far the in-home monitoring systems have come and the capabilities that a physician now has to assure their patients are well cared for. Attending the conference benefited me by allowing me to get a feel for the professional conferences that I will attend as an industry member in the future. It also made me aware of some of the changing technologies and regulations that are being made available in the biomedical field.”
