On Saturday 17th September, the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS), Women in Engineering (WIE) and RMIT University WIE held a e-sewing/wearable technology hackathon with a focus on assisting individuals with hearing impairment and preventing hearing loss.
The hackathon provided an opportunity to six shortlisted teams to build technology prototypes with limited electronic resources, such as Arduino kits, zigbee modules, accelerometers, magnetometers, gyroscopes, ultrasonic range, proximity sensors and unlimited dreams
Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) was founded in 1904 on the campus of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. The vision of the founders was to create an organization to both recognize the scholastic success of students, and to help electrical engineering graduates find employment and support in their careers.

Welcome to the 1st International Student Conference organized by IEEE EMBS, the first in our series of conferences organized by the students, for the students. This first edition will take place at Universal Studios in sunny Orlando, Florida, on 6-8 November, 2015
Dr. Leroy Hood was among 20 professionals honored for their outstanding contributions to engineering during a Medals and Recognitions Ceremony in Amsterdam, Netherlands in August 2014. The ceremony took place in conjunction with the IEEE Sections Congress. IEEE President Roberto J. de Marca served as the Master of Ceremonies,
Since its inception in 1963, the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) has been focused on the intersection of engineering and health. EMBS members have embarked on amazing feats of engineering, such as developing sophisticated sensors in clothing capable of monitoring a person’s mental state, or harnessing nanotechnology to delivery drug therapies
The IEEE Board of Directors approved the newly elevated Fellows for 2014. Please join us in congratulating our colleagues on this prestigious accomplishment!

As a Technical Committee of EMBS, the primary focus of the Committee on Man and Radiation (COMAR) is in the area of biological effects of nonionizing electromagnetic energy, from power line through microwave frequency ranges.
The first IEEE EMBS International Student Conference (ISC2013) was held 8-10 October 2013 at Cairo University, Egypt. The conference was intended to provide a forum for students to meet each other and exchange experiences at the local, regional, and international levels, as well as offer both undergraduate and postgraduate students an opportunity to practice, first hand, the process of scientific research and publication. ISC2013 was a “by students for students” event in that students served as the organizers, speakers, reviewers, and track chairs for all of the conference activities.
