Your experience with SBHSE happens inside and outside the classroom.  There’s no doubt that extracurricular activities can enhance your college experience. For many, getting involved rekindles their dedication to their studies. How do you find others who may share your interest in science fiction, snowboarding, rugby, or whatever? How do you connect to the various local agencies to become active in the community? ASU has hundreds of organizations and clubs that will help you become involved, or just help you explore any number of hobbies or activities that always sounded interesting. Here are places to take the first step in campus involvement.

Biomedical Engineering Student Clubs

Some of the biomedical engineering groups include The Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES), Engineering World Health and the iGEM team.

Many groups are multi-disciplinary, such as Engineers Without Borders and the Society of Women Engineers.

ASU is also home to EPICS, Engineering Projects in Community Service, a program where teams of students design, build, and deploy systems to solve engineering-based problems for not-for-profit organizations.
