Alumni: Welcome Back!

Share your experiences with current BE students

Bioengineering students are eager to hear from alumni—whether you are in research, academia, government, business, or technology. To facilitate exchange between alumni and students, we have two programs that invite you to come to Penn to talk informally about your professional career paths.  If you would be interested in talking with undergraduate or graduate students, please contact Jeanne Marks at

Mentor a Bioengineering student

Students look for guidance about summer internships and future goals, medical school, and research careers.  If you would like to mentor a student (via e-mail), go to Penn Engineering's mentorship page for details.

Some students do go on to graduate school, but the majority of Bioengineering students enter the work force upon graduation.  If your company is interested in Bioengineering graduates, there are many opportunities—from career fairs to individual interviews—on campus. Learn more...
