3rd Annual Biomedical Engineering Industry Day

March 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join us for this annual event that brings together trainees, researchers, industry partners, government and stakeholders in the biomedical engineering community to share ideas, build collaborations and ultimately shape the future of the BME industry in Alberta.

The morning will focus on the changing landscape of BME careers with the goals of identifying the gaps between completing academic training and becoming a valuable professional in industry, as well as strategies to bridge those gaps prior to graduation. The afternoon will focus on research and development opportunities within the theme of “Prevention and Healthy Aging.”
