Biomedical Engineering Student’s Association

Welcome to BESA!

The Biomedical Engineering Students’ Association (BESA) is your official BME student government – all BME students are automatically BESA members. We represent the students’ interests here at BME;  facilitate interactions with BME administration and University of Toronto. Part of your tuition fees go towards BESA – we subsidize and host exciting social, professional, cultural events.

About us

BESA is a student organization representing the needs of graduate students at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at the University of Toronto, as well as students in the various collaborative programs. All graduate students in BME and any of the collaborative programs are automatically members of BESA. BESA is an official student government and provides a link between the students, the Institute, and the Graduate Students Union.

BESA plans and organizes social, professional and special events for BME students, such as ski trips, sports games, live performances, career spotlights and more. We provide services such as charity donation support for students fundraising for biomedical charities, student support for community projects and maintaining a professional venue of communication for external bodies. We also take the lead in planning Scientific Day, a showcase of graduate students’ work, with the assistance of the department.
