National Committee on Biomedical Engineering (NCBME)

 

Welcome on the website of the National Committee on Biomedical Engineering (NCBME). To browse the website, please use the menu on the left.

The main goal of this website is to provide a contact platform for people interested in the field of biomedical engineering (biomedical engineers, students, PhD students, alumni, universities, industry...).

The website will announce biomedical events, such as the yearly National Day.

Moreover, the website will function as a bridge between biomedical engineers searching for a job and industrial partners with current vacancies. Alumni as well as students are able to register and add information to their profile. In this way, they can upload their cv and contact industrial partners.
