About the Conference...
The Midwest Biomedical Engineering Regional Career Conference (MBECC) hosted by Wayne State University, is a unique one-day conference designed specifically for biomedical engineering students (undergraduate, graduate and post-doctorates) and working professionals. The conference provides a wealth of career information and networking opportunities. Students and recent graduates will learn about careers from alumni working in industry, academia, government, law and medicine. Attendees will learn about full-time opportunities and current students can hear about intern/coop programs. Students with research projects and also design teams are welcome to present their work in the poster session. MBECC also showcases the host school's BME program, students and faculty.

Biomedical Engineering at
Wayne State University has the honor of being home to one of the longest, continuously active research programs in biomedical engineering in the world. The partnership between the School of Medicine and College of Engineering dates back more than 70 years. Faculty members from both sides of Warren Avenue have produced significant advancements in the field that have continuing impacts on the lives and health of individuals around the world.
Biomedical engineering education has evolved over more than 50 years at Wayne State. Students initially had the opportunity to concentrate in biomechanics within the engineering mechanics and mechanical engineering programs. Building on its strong history in this field and the growth of coursework and research in the area of biomaterials and biomedical sensors, independent graduate degree programs were established in 1998. In 2010, a full range of degree programs in biomedical engineering was first offered to serve their outstanding students.
