Many bioengineering undergraduates gain hands-on research experience while at Berkeley. Some students work through the established programs below, others get course credit for research, still others volunteer in labs.
Many opportunities for research can through the College of Engineering’s student research pages.
The Bioengineering Department’s new Biology on a Chip Internship Program began in 2010, a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. Non-UC Berkeley students are eligible to participate in this program.
Some other applicable programs are:
Summer Biodesign Immersion Experience – for current UC Berkeley BioE students
UC Berkeley Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program, research during the school year.
QB3 Undergraduate Research Biotech Internship Program - summer industry internships.
Amgen and Genentech Scholars Undergraduate Summer Research Program in Sciences and Biotechnology.
Pre-IMSD Summer Research, summer research in biomedicine, environmental health, behavioral sciences, pre-PhD.
Other research opportunities can be found on the Undergraduate Research at Berkeley website.
