*** 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!!

 

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.

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 BioEngSoc teams had a great time taking part in the intramural leagues and we can’t wait to get back to it! Our society has three teams which compete weekly in the intramural leagues which are all held in Sheffield between different societies. 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 sec, Alexandra, and check out the Facebook page for more info.

***COVID-19 Update***

Our sports teams have been postponed until further notice. Contact Alexandra Botha on facebook or DM us on insta to be added to the group chat. We are unable to hold trials or training this year so will be using a group chat to select a teams if we are given the go-ahead.

 

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  continuing the scheme virtually 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. There is no long-term committment so you're welcome to take part in as many sessions as you like!

 

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.
