What is AEMB?

Alpha Eta Mu Beta is a National Biomedical Engineering Honors Society.  Founded in 1979, it seeks to recognize and inspire excellence within the biomedical and bioengineering field.  Its members show high scholastic achievement, strong moral character, and leadership within their discipline.  Clemson’s chapter of AEMB was founded in 2011.  We seek to embody AEMB’s mission on Clemson University’s campus and to help our members to develop into future leaders and innovators in the biomedical and bioengineering field.

Alpha Eta Mu Beta’s Mission:

  1. Encourage their members to be active with in the bioengineering profession
  2. Unify the bioengineering student body in presenting its needs and ideals to faculty
  3. Strengthen student-faculty relationships
  4. Build relationships with all organizations and groups working in bioengineering
  5. Create an experience for its members that bring together the group’s similar interests, objectives, and abilities
  6. Promote professional development and prosperity of its members
