Resources for Current Students

Advising: Advising is required every semester.  In order to enroll in the upcoming semester, students must meet with the Biomedical Engineering Academic Success Advisor or their faculty advisor, based on the criteria outlined on the Advising page.  

BMES - Biomedical Engineering Society: The Vision of the BMES is to serve as the world's leading society of professionals devoted to developing and using engineering and technology to advance human health and well-being. The Mission of the BMES is to build and support the biomedical engineering community, locally, nationally and internationally, with activities designed to communicate recent advances, discoveries, and inventions; promote education and professional development; and integrate the perspectives of the academic, medical, governmental, and business sectors.

Advisor: Dr. Michael Jorgensen,

General Education Courses: General Education courses are divided into three tiers: Foundation courses, Introductory courses and Advanced Further Study and Issues and Perspectives courses.   

Engineering Plus: To ensure our graduates are prepared for the future, the College of Engineering requires students to complete three of seven requirements as part of every undergraduate degree: Undergraduate Research; Cooperative Education or Internship; Global Learning or Study Abroad; Service Learning; Leadership; Multidisciplinary Education; and Entrepreneurship and Innovation.  

Engineering Open House: This annual event is a celebration of the accomplishments of our students and faculty, featuring an exhibition of student projects, research and laboratory facilities. Every engineering discipline at WSU showcases students' design and research projects. The college also hosts laboratory tours for the public, showing off the advanced research conducted at WSU.

Engineering Student Success Center: Located in Partnership Building 2 A100, the friendly staff of the ESSC can help you with registration, enrollment and records as well as advising and student supports such as tutoring.

GEEKS Tutoring: GEEKS is a free tutoring program available to any engineering student. Tutoring is available for math, science, and basic engineering classes. Group and individual sessions are offered throughout the academic year.

National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates: Funded 8 to 10 week summer reserach experiences funded by the National Science Foundation at various universities around the U.S.  Students typically apply from December to February for the following Summer program.  This is a competitive selection process, so start early in developing an application.

Order of the Engineer: The "Order of the Engineer" is a fellowship of engineers who are trained in science and technology and dedicated to the highest ethical and professional practice, teaching, or administration of their profession.

Scholarships: The College of Engineering annually awards over $500,000 each year in both merit-based and need-based scholarships to engineering majors in all classes. Most College of Engineering scholarship recipients are selected using our online General Engineering Scholarship Application. This application is open from November 1 through February 1 each academic year, and applications received during this application period are used to select recipients for the following academic year.

Student Organizations: The best way to make friends with people who share your interests is to join a student organization. The College of Engineering sponsors dozens of student organizations representing different majors and specialized interest. Find one that fits here.

WSU Pre-medical student advising: Students majoring in BME who are also on the pre-medicine curriculum track are encouraged to meet frequently with pre-med advisors in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Advising Center, located in 115 Grace Wilkie Hall (316-978-4757).
