Eric Kaden, B.S. 2018

Eric Kaden

Eric Kaden received a B.S. in biomedical engineering in 2018 from Cornell University as a member of the Meinig School's inaugural undergraduate class. After finishing his undergraduate degree, Eric moved to his home state of New Jersey and spent two years working in medical device manufacturing. His first role was as a process engineer at Zimmer Biomet. A year later, he transitioned to a role as a quality engineer at Stryker. In early 2020, Eric decided that he wanted to go to law school and become an attorney. He is excited to announce that in August 2021 he started his legal education at Emory University School of Law in Atlanta, Georgia. Eric is not sure in which area of the law he will specialize. However, given his background he is certainly considering patent law. 

Eric is grateful to the faculty and staff of the Meinig School as well as his BME classmates for making his undergraduate experience a memorable one. He believes completing the BME program helped him develop a strong work ethic that will carry over to his time as a law student. Some of Eric’s hobbies include pickleball, making Spotify playlists, meditation and yoga, and watching comedy bits on YouTube. For anyone interested in connecting further, he can be reached at
