*** FOR UP TO DATE INFORMATION, PLEASE JOIN OUR FACEBOOK GROUP ***

The Bioengineering Society is for those who are studying or are interested in the amazing field that is 'Bioengineering'! We connect students socially who are currently studying the degree - and it’s with us that you can get to know other like-minded people with similar interests. There are loads of different things that you can get involved with - so you can join in with whatever you want to. If you've got an idea for something that we don't do (yet), give us a shout! We run regular socials, sports events, talks, trips, volunteering opportunities and much more!!

 

Freshers 2020

We usually run a number of events and activities throughout freshers. This year looks like it might be a bit different but don’t worry we are still planning on making freshers 2020 the best yet! For up-to-date information see our Facebook group. We will let you know if there are any changes to our plans. We can’t wait to meet cohort 2020!!

 

Socials

We run many different socials as a society! From Peak District walks, Film Unit screenings and Pizza Nights to Bar Crawls, the Christmas Meal and the Summer Ball- we run varied socials for everybody. As well as our own events, we head out to legendary joint-society events like Dance Your Socks Off and The Big Engineering Boogie. 

 

     

Above are some of the images for the Summer Ball 2019. Sadly, last year’s ball had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 so were extra excited for this year’s ball!!

 

Sports

If you’re interested in being part of a team or trying out a new sport our mixed netball, football and basketball teams’ welcome players of all abilities! Last year the BioEng teams had a great time taking part in the intramural leagues and we can’t wait to get back to it this year! Our society has three teams which compete weekly in the intramural leagues which are all held in Sheffield. These teams are selected at trials which usually run during the first few weeks of term,  don’t be put off, we welcome all abilities and its just a bit of fun! Our Facebook group is the best way to get updates on the dates of these. Some of our teams use memberships and some use a pay-as-you-go system. Memberships can be purchased through this website and discounts are offered to society members. For more information on sports and memberships please contact our sports secs. Alexandra is running this year’s netball so drop her a message or join the Facebook group to get involved in our mixed netball team! Get in touch with Sam to find out more about our society football and basketball and check out the Facebook page for more info.

***COVID-19 Update***

Our football team will be running throughout the year starting in september contact Sam Fletch on facebook or DM us on insta to be added to the group chat. we are unable to hold trialsd this year so will be using a group chat to sleect a team.

Unfortunately our netball league has been postponed until semester 2 so we look forward to seeing you then!!

 

Volunteering

Last year we started our volunteering programme which was so much fun! The idea is to educate students, in primary schools around Sheffield, on bioengineering as well as promote student life. It was extremely successful, and we are planning on continuing the scheme this year.  There is a training session before you start volunteering with us, but anyone is welcome to join! If you would be interested in taking part or have any questions contact Ella or Sophie. We will be posting updates on our Facebook group and there is usually a short form to complete so we know which dates you are available.  The university covers the cost of travel to the schools as well as the cost of training so there is no financial commitment.

 

Committee

Every year we hold an AGM (annual general meeting) to elect a new committee. They are in charge of running the society. Everyone has their own roles but were all here to support you. If you've got any problems with anything at all, course related or otherwise, you can ask any of the committee (we're lovely, we promise). We're here to help you - and chances are we've been through it before! We know that this year may be a bit different to normal so please don’t hesitate to contact any of us for support.

Committee

All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.

A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students' Union.

It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
