What is CUBE?
CUBE (Club for Undergraduate Biomedical Engineering) is a student-run club with over 600 members, whose mandate is to promote biomedical engineering at the undergraduate level. Our goal is to disseminate knowledge pertaining to the biomedical field as well as to serve as a point of contact between students, researchers and industry. If you have a passion for biomedical engineering or are interested in learning more about biomedical engineering (including opportunities in industry and academia), CUBE is the club for you!
What kind of events does CUBE host?
We host a variety of events, including:
– Information sessions on the latest research in the fields of biomedical engineering, medicine and biotechnology
– Speaker seminars that bring together both industry leaders and academic researchers
– Tours of various academic and industry hospitals and laboratories
– Workshops to learn important wet lab and dry lab skills in biomedical engineering
– An annual biomedical engineering design competition

Come visit us at clubs fair, and/or follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay up-to-date on everything that goes on at CUBE related to joining the exec team.
What if I don’t have prior knowledge of biomedical engineering? Can I still join CUBE and attend events if I’m not a student in the biomedical or engineering faculty?
Yes and yes! CUBE welcomes students from all disciplines and years with various backgrounds to join our general membership and junior executive team.
Given the situation of COVID-19, will there be any in-person events this year?
CUBE will continue to follow public health recommendations and stay on the lookout for changes in the COVID situation in Toronto and at UofT. Until then, most events will be hosted online. We are hopeful, however, to have some sort of in-person interaction.
I will be learning remotely outside of Toronto for the school year. Can I still participate in CUBE events?
YES! CUBE will be hosting online events throughout the year – you can participate in most events wherever you are.
What if we have more questions?
