Welcome Alumni and Friends


With your support, the UC San Diego Department of Bioengineering continues to make significant strides in its mission to educate tomorrow’s bioengineering leaders, conduct advanced research, and drive innovation.

In 2009, UC San Diego Department of Bioengineering was ranked #2 in the nation for graduate education by US World and News Report. The Department instructs an average of 200 graduates and 900 undergraduates per year.

With only 12 percent of the UC San Diego’s budget sustained by state funding, and state revenue declining each year, the Department of Bioengineering must increasingly rely on private funding to maintain the high quality research, instruction, and student services it is recognized for.
