The Naval Research Enterprise Internship Program (NREIP) provides an opportunity for students to participate in research at a Department of Navy (DoN) laboratory during the summer.
The goals of NREIP are to encourage participating students to pursue science and engineering careers, to further education via mentoring by laboratory personnel and their participation in research, and to make them aware of DoN research and technology efforts, which can lead to employment within the DoN.
NREIP provided competitive research internships to approximately 590 college students last summer. Participating students spend ten weeks during the summer conducting research at approximately 36 DoN laboratories.
National Science Foundation funded Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE) will offer a summer (June 13-August 18) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program in 2017 at University of Washington at Seattle. Students in the program will have the opportunity to participate in innovative research at the neural interface, as well as to attend special sessions on ethics, communication skills, laboratory safety and other selected topics. (CNSE REU)
At the end of the 10 week program students will present their work to the CSNE community in a research symposium. Details about the program and application materials can be found at: http://csne-erc.org/content/research-experience-undergraduates
There are many other universities that offer REU experiences during summer and you can search for them here.
Interested students should email the contacts listed for each site directly. These programs are excellent experience for anyone but especially students who are interested in graduate research. Most programs provide a stipend as well as support for travel and housing.
The BMES 2016 Annual Meeting is taking place from October 5-8th at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. LTU students and faculty will be representing the BME Department at our table. You can register and book your hotel here.
Are you looking to expand your horizion and make new connections in the field of biomedical engineering? Or maybe even looking for a job after graduation. If you answered yes then you should look into attending the 2016 Midwest BME Regional Conferance held at University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign on November 4th, 2016. The flyer is attached below for more information but be sure to attend the BMES meeting schedualed for August 30th, 2016 at 5:15 for more infromation.
One of the LTU Alum (Chris Harris, 2015) forwarded this job opening for a Foam Engineer with Lear Corp. Job is located in Southfield, MI.
The hiring manager (Mark Duso | Engineering Manager – NA Foam Design & Engineering) is currently taking interviews next week and maybe the week after so if you are then interested please apply directly. Also contact me and I can send you contact info for Chris, who will set up the meeting with the manager.
As the school year starts that means it time for all those great organizations you know and love to start back up again. The Biomedical Engineering Society will have a booth set up in the atrium on Thursday, August 25th from 12pm to 2pm so you can come out and learn about all the new and exciting things we have going on this year.
The first meeting of the year is also scheduled for Tuesday, August 30th at 5:15pm in the cool Welcome center (C 406) which is located above the LTU OneStop! The date is coming up quick so make sure to mark your calendars and come out to see all that the organization has to offer. Meet new friends from all levels of education who share a common love for biomedical engineering and learn how to further your experience and education. (Shhhh….. There will be food at the meeting!)
Hope to see everyone at these two events. Once again welcome back and GO BLUE DEVILS!

Dr. Mansoor Nasir (PI) and Dr. Eric Meyer (Co-PI) were recently awarded a $25,000 grant by Kern Family Foundation (KFF) to develop a model for dissemination of entrepreneurial mindset in biomedical engineering.
The two faculty were the recipients of Kern Entrepreneur Education Network (KEEN) Topical grant in 2014 through which they developed modules for several courses focusing on the entrepreneurial skill set. The modules used the Quantified-self and Wearables as a theme for implementation.
The following year (2015) the two faculty received funds through the KEEN Topical Subnet grant to organize three half-day workshops. After the first workshop on LTU campus, Dr. Nasir and Dr. Meyer took the Quantified-self ‘Roadshow’ to Bucknell and Ohio Northern Universities, where faculty and students were introduced to Theory and Practice of entrepreneurship.
The focus of the new grant is to specifically focus on broadening the scope of dissemination beyond the network through creation of digital and media resources. The faculty will work to integrate the LTU BME materials into the digital platform currently being developed by the KFF.
