Bioengineering Day

Rescheduled from original date



Bioengineering Day serves to celebrate UC San Diego's consistently top ranked bioengineering department, the current research by students, and the overall burgeoning field itself. The day-long event features various speakers, senior design project presentations, research seminars, and networking sessions. It is attended by well over 400 people each year, and is a great opportunity for undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and members from industry to form valuable connections with one another.


This year's event will be held in the University Price Center

Driving Directions
  • From I-5 North/South, exit onto La Jolla Village Drive West
  • Turn right onto Villa La Jolla Drive
  • Up the hill about 0.3 miles (stay in left lane as the right lane must turn)

  • At the next light, drive straight into the Gilman Parking Structure or Parking lot P602.
  • Walk through parking lot to the Price Center.

The event is Rescheduled

Due to concerns over COVID-19 and Chancellor Khosla's recent recommendations, Bioengineering Day 2020 will be canceled and no longer take place on April 22nd. We are sorry to bring you this news, but we are hopeful that some part of BE Day will still happen. Check back often for updates about what and when BE Day will be this year, and feel free to contact the co-chairs for any additional information.

Over the last nine months, we have been working to plan Bioengineering Day - an event that serves to celebrate the incredible bioengineering research at UC San Diego. The day hosts a keynote speech by a distinguished guest, poster presentations of senior design projects by our undergraduate students, and product demonstrations from industry leaders.
The theme for Bioengineering Day 2020 is BE Diverse - we are focusing not only on research completed by diverse researchers, but also achievements in bioengineering that can benefit diverse communities and global health goals.
As with all big events, there are costs associated with putting on the best program that we can. As such, we decided to launch a crowdfunding page with the hope that you can help us make this event possible. If you would like to donate, please click on the button below.



If you have any questions about the event, feel free to contact one of our planning chairs!
