IEEE-IST EMBS Chapter Food for Thought – Alumni talk


Location: Instituto Superior Técnico – Campus Alameda

Date: March 14th, 2017

Organization: IEEE-IST EMB Student Chapter

Number of participants: 40

Name of event: Food for Thought – Alumni talk

EMBS Student Chapter most recent initiative, “Food for Thought” was directed to all students of Biomedical Engineering who aimed to know more about life after university. To do so, they had the opportunity to talk with five Alumni, in a “speed dating” way where they were able to understand what defines the everyday life of people in different careers like research, consulting and many more. The five Alumni who participated were: Vasco Conceição, Ana Raquel Porteira, Rita Gil, Salomé Azevedo and Marta Cannas Sousa. In order to add to our event, we also had a “coffee break” during the talk, to induce an informal conversation and relaxing environment. The feedback was extremely positive and EMBS Student Chapter hopes to repeat the initiative soon.
