Bioengineering Day 2015

What is Bioengineering Day?

Bioengineering Day is an annual event organized by the Department of Bioengineering that unites faculty, alumni, students, and industry partners to showcase the yearly progress and successes within our bioengineering ecosystem here at UC San Diego.

This year will be the 9th annual Bioengineering Day. Last year, the event brought together around 500 attendees consisting of students, faculty, alumni, and industry.

Bioengineering Day is a student run event, operating under the guidance and advice of the Department of Bioengineering. The two undergraduate organizations involved in the planning process are:

      Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES)
      International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE)

The graduate student organization, the Bioengineering Graduate Society (BEGS), plays an active role in guiding, planning and execution. Together, the respective representatives from each organization come together to plan all aspects of the event, including selecting the venue and keynote speaker, catering, funding and logistics.

Guest speakers share their insights on their respective fields, which are usually related to research, medicine, academia, or industry. Undergraduate senior design projects and graduate student research are showcased at the event. Bioengineering Day sets the stage for students to interact with field experts to learn new things and become increasingly aware of trends and developments within the field.

Bioengineering Day has also had the honor of having notable professionals in the field give the keynote address at the event. Previous keynote speakers include:

      Dr. Terrence Sejnowski
      Dr. J. Craig Venter

We are proud to have had the opportunity to host these keynote speakers- their experience and wisdom have helped inspire our Bioengineering students.

Without the generous support of our sponsors, Bioengineering Day would not be possible. Past sponsors include:

-The Whitaker Center for Biomedical Engineering -Industrial Advisory Board
-UCSD School of Medicine and Pharmacy -Dexcom
-Institute of Engineering in Medicine -Genentech
-Celgene -Calit2
