About us

Since its founding, the Bioengineering Society has grown from strength to strength with a strong sense of community amongst all its 550 members. The activities for our members include social activities, sporting events and industrial opportunities, allowing our members to settle in and enjoy university life whilst obtaining valuable contacts for the future.

Bioengineering is a rapidly developing industry and we aim to provide an atmosphere to keep our students comfortable throughout their studies. More information on the department can be found here.

  • Ranked second best university in the world

    Imperial College is one of the world leading Bioengineering Institutes, as well as being No.1 in the UK for Bioengineering. Bioengineering is an industry that's developing rapidly. During our students studies the Bioengineering Society aims to provide an environment that gives opportunities maximising their career potential, introducing them to companies via careers talks and our annual Bioengineering Careers Fair.

  • We are a student elected, student based society

    We provide our students with excellent social events, allowing them to interact with the whole department as well as sporting events, including department football, volleyball and a brand new touch rugby tournament. Examples of events held are:

    ICBE Quiz Night - In the heart of the Royal School of Mines Imperial College Bioengineering Society organise a Pub Quiz for the entire department, with only 100 tickets available we sell out quickly. An evening full of topical questions, humour and teaming up with department staff. Food and drink provided are provided at the event as well as a chance to meet and talk to alumni, all for a small entry fee.

    Christmas Dinner - Our christmas dinner, situated off campus at exclusive venues is one of the biggest social events of the year. 150 Tickets, a 3 course dinner with drinks and an after party. A chance to let your hair down and celebrate the end of first term with some of your favourite lecturers.

  • From the lab to the workplace

    We hold Annual Careers Fairs, an exclusive meet and greet with companies from a variety of industries, including Medical Devices, Pharmaceutical, Consultancy as well as Start-Ups. This is a fantastic opportunity to network and enquire about Summer Internships, Year in Industry Placements, Graduate Recruitment and Sponsorship.

    Our first Careers Fair began in 2012 and has grown from strength to strength with an increasing number of companies attending, and has now been opened up to Mechanical Engineering Students and Electronic Engineering Students increasing the exposure to over 1000 students.
