Carleton University IEEE EMB Student Club awarded the Regional and Global Outstanding Student Chapter Awards
The Carleton University Engineering in Medicine and Biology (EMB) Student Club is honored to be recognized by IEEE EMBS with the North America Regional Award and the Overall Student Chapter Award. This is the second time in a row for the club to be recognized with the regional award and the second overall award in the past three years. It truly reflects on the hard work the club has been putting into growing the biomedical engineering community at Carleton University. This year, the club’s executives focused on expanding their outreach to the University of Ottawa and local Meet Up groups to bring students, researchers, and professionals together. Even though the club is receiving this award during an uncertain time, the executives plan to push forward and to continue to run events to make sure that biomedical engineering students remain connected to the community. The executives will build upon their previous success and increase the number of events by converting to virtual events. This change will allow the executives to reach out to speakers and experts across the world and be able to bring their expertise to the Carleton University biomedical engineering community.
