Auburn's biomedical engineering students gain real-world experience each year by designing and building an innovative medical device prototype to compete in the annual National Biomedical Engineering Society Competition. Your gifts on Tiger Giving Day will provide the project materials engineering students need to build the prototype and funds to cover their conference travel costs.
The Auburn Biomedical Engineering Society (AUBMES) builds and supports the biomedical engineering community in and around the university through professional development and networking for members, outreach to the community, and a commitment to innovation in the form of active research and invention projects, including the National BMES Competition, which is in Philadelphia this year.
Each year, AUBMES’s design team — a group of interdisciplinary engineering and College of Sciences and mathematics students — builds, prototypes, and tests a medical device to the criteria determined annually by the National BMES chapter. The team utilizes its knowledge in order to turn a theoretical device into a working prototype. These projects allow undergraduates from various colleges across campus to collaborate and apply skills gained through coursework in a creative, meaningful way.
Your support on Tiger Giving Day will provide the resources necessary for Auburn students to compete on a national level.
These students are the embodiment of the Auburn Creed, exercising and believing in hard work, education, and the human touch. Your support of our goal guarantees that these students will have every opportunity to reap the reward of professional hands-on experiences as they continue to change the world.
If you are an Auburn Engineering graduate, your gifts will count toward the SEC Engineering Challenge. From now until June 30, 2019, your gift of $100 or more will count toward Auburn’s standing in the SEC Engineering Challenge. The school with the highest percentage of alumni responding will win the SEC Engineering Challenge.
