IEEE Orange County EMBS Chapter

March 7th, 2014

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (IEEE-EMBS), Orange County Section EMBS Chapter is a professional organization for engineers and engineering students who are interested in the bio-medical devices or instrumentation area. We have over 100 local EMBS members and 3000 IEEE members interested in EMBS. Our mission is to provide an open forum for engineers, physicians, biologists and other researchers, and healthcare policy makers to encourage innovation, continuous education, career development, and collaboration through networking, discussion and sharing cutting-edge technology. We invite renowned experts and speakers to present topics in bio-medical engineering areas that have a broad interest for members. All interested members of the public are welcome to attend our meetings.

If you have suggestions for speakers, meeting topics, or ideas to improve our EMBS Chapter, please feel free to contact the chapter officers.
