Two bioengineering students were among the five finalists for the University Medal, the top award for a graduating undergraduate student at UC Berkeley. These are the first bioengineering finalists for the award in the history of the department.
In addition to Ritankar Das, winner of the Medal, bioengineering student Daniel Price was one of the four remaining finalists for the award. Price is majoring in both EECS and bioengineering, and is a 2013 Rhodes Scholar.
Congratulations Daniel and Ritankar!
