The IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) is the world’s largest international society of biomedical engineers. The organization’s 12,000 members reside in some 97 countries around the world. EMBS provides its members with access to the people, practices, information, ideas, and opinions that are shaping one of the fastest-growing fields in science.
Its members design the electrical circuits that make a pacemaker run, create the software that reads an MRI, and help develop the wireless technologies that allow patients and doctors to communicate over long distances. They’re interested in bioinformatics, biotechnology, clinical engineering, information technology, instrumentation and measurement, micro and nanotechnology, radiology, and robots. They are researchers and educators, technicians, and clinicians-biomedical engineers are the link between science and life science, creating innovations in healthcare technology for the benefit of all humanity.
The IEEE EMBS DUTh student branch chapter, gives our members the opportunity to enhance their biomedical and engineering knowledge, through our annual teams, to broaden their horizons, by attending our organized events, such as speeches, workshops, seminars and field trips and ultimately helps them explore many of the different career paths this vast field -bioengineering- has to offer. All of that and much more, in a super friendly and teamwork focused environment, which is the true foundation of our chapter.

Bioengineering & Sensors Team
Our team primarily focuses on building sensors, that help or improve people’s health and everyday life, using easy to find and cost-efficient materials, while exploring and learning the science behind them, how and why they work. Those are devices such as a thermistor-based thermometer, an operational amplifier-based hearing aid, an automatic dispenser etc.
