The University of Manitoba’s Biomedical Engineering Society, UMBMES, exists to bring together students at the University of Manitoba interested in the biomedical field; specifically, to source and propagate knowledge pertaining to the biomedical field, and to apply this knowledge through biomedical oriented events, research, and tours. As a group UMBMES also aims to provide its members with the following resources: a list of current biomedical course options, industry in Manitoba, labs both on and off campus and professors who are currently doing biomedical research at the University.

UMBMES was founded in the Summer of 2012 and is an officially recognized student group of University of Manitoba Student’s Union and University of Manitoba Engineering Society.
