The Biomedical Engineering guide provides links to information on all topics related to biomedical engineering in relevant databases, journals, conference proceedings, technical reports, websites, professional societies, etc.
Engineers are problem-solvers. The best solutions to a problem, especially the most complex ones, are those that take into account the widest possible variety of viewpoints and ideas. Therefore, the importance of diversity in the engineering disciplines cannot be overstated. However, throughout history, not all groups of people have had equal access or equal opportunities to become engineers -- nor have they always been welcome. This page is designed to help engineering students better understand the importance of diversity, equity, inclusion, and access to their chosen profession, as well as assist students from groups that have been historically underrepresented in STEM with finding information and organizations that can get them started (and keep them) on the road to success as a Penn State Engineer.
Women make up less than a quarter of STEM professionals in the United States, and numbers are even lower for women of color. But a growing group of researchers is exposing longstanding discrimination and making science more inclusive. Picture a Scientist is an online steaming film.
The film Coded Bias explores the fallout of MIT media lab researcher Joy Buolamwini's startling discovery that facial recognition does not see dark-skinned faces accurately, and her journey to push for the first-ever legislation in the U.S. to govern against bias in the algorithms that impact us all.
