Industrial Seminar Series
These seminars occur once a month on the first Friday. The speakers typically work for biotechnology firms or have a new perspective on biological engineering.
To complement the industrial seminar series, the board sponsors a set of event tailored towards those students with an interest in an academic career. Topcis covered include how to prepare yourself for an academic career and discussions of the most promising areas for research in biological engineering in the medium term.
Bioengineering in Society Discussions
The BE Board is trying out an event series focused on the impacts of biotechnology on society. Discussions are led by outside experts on subjects such as intellectual property, national security, or public perceptions. Contact the academic representatives (be-academic[at]mit.edu) with any ideas for topics or speakers.
Each year, the BE board carries out a survey of student opinion on a range of topics of relevance to BE graduate students.
