BESS – The Biomedical Engineering Student Society

Biomedical Engineering Student Society group shot - 2014

The Biomedical Engineering Student Society at UNSW, or BESS, is a society especially for… you guessed it, Biomedical Engineering students. It brings together undergraduate and postgraduate students and researchers and academics plus industry partners.

Bess offers members so much:

  • A range of social activities including O-week activities, cocktail nights, BBQs and the annual BESS scavenger hunt.
  • Mentoring and advice on everything from starting at uni to finding a job.
  • Connections with industry through social activities involving industry partners and information on opportunities.
  • A forum for communication between the academics and students at the UNSW Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering.
  • Great team stuff like t-Shirts and hoodies.

In addition, BESS has close associations with other Engineering Societies – like the MechSoc and EngSoc – and they often run joint events.
