The Alpha Eta Mu Beta, the Biomedical Engineering honor society – FIU Chapter has grown immensely since it was created in 2007 with only ten members. In 2009, 2010 and 2011, 2012 AEMB, won the “Most Active Chapter Award” from the National Alpha Eta Mu Beta organization, and during the past year AEMB have continued to thrive and have become even more active.
Florida International University has approximately 38,000 registered students and 200 active student organizations. In Spring 2012, AEMB FIU won the outstanding organization in the Honors Community in the entire FIU campus.
And this academic year under the presidentship of Rupak Dua, it has won the overall outstanding organization award at the CSO banquet held on 17th April, 2013. Given that AEMB, FIU chapter only have 22 current active members, this is a tremendous achievement.
The philosophy of their E-Board has always emphasized that the strength of the society is in its members, and they are proud to say that most of the students who are inducted into AEMB remain involved in their chapter after induction and participate in their activities on a regular basis. This is why they are able to put many events together and be a visible force on campus. Their student body also includes a variety of undergraduates and graduates with different interests and goals who have been able to form lasting bonds. One of the strengths of AEMB FIU chapter is that both undergraduates and graduates are well represented, acknowledged, and encouraged to share activities and network with each other.
Once again congratulations to AEMB for winning the overall outstanding organization award among all clubs at FIU
