Biomedical engineering is a multidisciplinary field in engineering, physics, chemistry, biology and medicine. The Biomedical Engineering Society (BES) Scientific Meeting is an annual symposium organized to provide a platform for students from junior colleges, polytechnics, undergraduate and graduate levels to interact, facilitating the sharing of biomedical engineering knowledge between like-minded individuals with similar interests.


The BES9SM will be hosted by Hwa Chong Institution on 16th May 2015. This is the first time a junior college is organizing such an event. Besides allowing interaction among students, the event shall also provide opportunities for students to learn from academics and professionals in the biomedical engineering industry.
