The College of Engineering and Technology’s newly installed Alpha Eta Mu Beta chapter recently initiated its charter members during a ceremony on campus. Six juniors and seniors were joined by the Dean David White, chapter advisors Dr. Barbara Muller-Borer and Blair Weaver, and other engineering faculty for the ceremonies.

According to its website, Alpha Eta Mu Beta, the National Biomedical Engineering Honor Society, was formed to recognize and encourage excellence in biomedical engineering and bioengineering. Its purpose is to bring individuals from both fields into a closer union to help understand and promote the profession.

New initiates included:

  1. Victoria Bibiana Myers, senior
  2. Melinda Victoria Plyler, senior
  3. Andrew Michael Ritz, senior
  4. Gurnoor Kaur Sangha, senior
  5. Marissa Anne Bochenek, junior
  6. Drew Eliot Navarro, junior

“Students inducted into Alpha Eta Mu Beta represent the top academic performers pursuing an engineering degree in the biomedical concentration,” said Weaver.

The chapter will receive its official charter, and founding members will be recognized during the national Biomedical Engineering Society’s annual conference in October.
