Partner Benefits

We sincerely appreciate your interest and look forward to your partnership with UF BME. Here you will find just a few of the primary benefits offered to our industry partners. We will work with you and your team to tailor these benefits to best fit what is most meaningful to your team and organization. 

  • Name and logo featured on our industry partners homepage for increased visibility among the UF Community
  • Becoming employers of choice for the best and the brightest BME students
  • Posting news or stories from your organization on our industry webpage newsfeed
  • Direct access to BME faculty for further research collaborations and technology licensing opportunities
  • Offering advice and recommendations for enhancements to the BME program
  • Participating as a VIP invitee to department events, speaker series, and other programs
  • Enhanced student connections through current student organization meetings, events and activities
  • Reduced cost for sponsored Capstone Design Projects


In return for this enriched access to our program, we expect that our Industry Partners are actively engaged in the department through offering of student internships, hiring of BME students, participating in department events, etc., as mentioned above. We also ask our BME Industrial Partners for a minimum annual contribution. This contribution will be used to help support the BME student research symposia, student organization meetings and events, student-based outreach activities to the community, student travel to scientific and professional conferences, student fellowships, junior faculty travel programs, etc.
