This week, six of our Biomedical Engineering alumni visited their alma mater, meeting with current students to advise them and inspire them with a range of career destinations. The alumni rotated between tables of students, giving them individual discussion time with the entire student cohort, followed by an hour's informal mingling with the entire group as well as a representative from UCL Career's Engineering lead, Amy Lourenco.
