Biomedical Engineering Students' Association

BESA is a student organization representing the needs of graduate students at the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering (IBBME) at the University of Toronto, as well as students in the various collaborative programs. All graduate students in IBBME and any of the collaborative programs are automatically members of BESA. BESA is an official student government and provides a link between the students, the Institute, and the Graduate Students Union.

BESA plans and organizes social, professional and special events for IBBME students, such as ski trips, sports games, live performances, career spotlights, pub nights and more. We provide services such as charity donation support for students fundraising for biomedical charities, student support for community projects and maintaining a professional a enue of communication for external bodies. We take the lead in planning Scientific Day, IBBME's internal conference, showcasing graduate students’ work in May. As also organize the Biomedical Engineering Career Day, a networking event and booth session geared towards transition students into industry.
