Bioengineering Day gives seniors the chance to showcase their project, gives graduate students the opportunity to present their work, gives speakers the ability to share insights into their respective fields, and gives UC San Diego student teams the chance to test their smarts at the annual Bioengineering Day Quiz Bowl. With this cherished tradition, BMES works as a team with graduate students to create a day dedicated to the expansive field of Bioengineering.

The goal of our Outreach Committee is to not only introduce bioengineering to the upcoming generation of K-12 students, but also to give back to the local San Diego community. Join us in our journey to reach out to people who need our help, and to initiate the passions for science, technology, engineering and mathematics in the younger crowd!

The Project Team Committee is dedicated to the Biomedical Research and Competition sector of our organization. Every year, we hope to give undergraduate studnets the ability to attain hands-on experience with laboratory techniques in academic departments ranging from Mechanical to Bioengineering to the UC San Diego Medical School. Additionally we hope to get people involved in research by providing exciting projects developed by partnering faculty!

Freshman Committee is a social instrument to introduce freshman to BMES and UCSD's Bioengineering program via social outings and through planning of the Bioengineering Experience, an event that outlines the fields and opportunities that the tracks in UCSD Bioengineering can offer. But primarily, we are here to give freshman the confidence and resources to succeed at UCSD and beyond.
