Welcome to the Rutgers University Bioengineering Society website!

Hello all. We're pleased to announce the launch of the new RUBES website. Be sure to visit regularly to stay up-to-date on upcoming meetings and events. Check out the Upcoming Events page to see what we have planned for the 2015-2016 academic year (we'll continuously update it as more speakers and meetings are finalized).

Speakers we've previously hosted include:

  • Dr. Meenakshi Dutt
  • Dr. Ilker Hacihaliloglu
  • Dr. Jeffrey Zahn
  • Dr. Martin Yarmush
  • Dr. Yannis Androulakis

We also hosted representatives from Kaplan Inc. for tips in preparing for the GRE and MCAT, and last year we collaborated with the Minority Engineering Educational Task in an outreach event focused on providing an introduction to various STEM-related fields to high school seniors through a hands-on project in which students built a functional model of a human arm.

Throughout the semester, we've also been using MATLAB as a tool for modeling of simple physical phenomena, including pendulums and springs.

We're excited to host many similar events this year. In addition, we recently purchased a Myo Gesture Armband Controller, and we look forward to giving students the ability to develop interesting applications for this technology!

Hope to see you at our future events,

Ian Reucroft, President
