Student Groups

  • The Johns Hopkins student chapter of Society for Biomaterials is a multidisciplinary student club established in 2013 by students from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. Our society focuses on the promotion of biomaterials research, and the advancement of education and awareness of biomedical and biomaterials sciences through organizing field trips, research seminars, networking and social events. We welcome students from any departments for membership; in fact, we have graduate and undergraduate members from several departments of the school of engineering, and the school of arts and sciences.

  • The mission of the Materials Graduate Society (MGS) is to focus on the
    advancement of materials scientists and researchers at the graduate and post-graduate
    level. Through professional and social development events, our graduate student
    organization will strive to improve department camaraderie, academic excellence, and
    professional advancement for future scientists. The MGS aims to not only build lifelong friendships but a solid professional
    network, along with the opportunity for those involved to expand their communication,
    social, and networking skills for the workforce upon graduation.
