Research Scholars: Bioengineering

The UC San Diego Department of Bioengineering and UC San Diego Extension are pleased to offer remote courses for high school students who are interested in exploring the field of Bioengineering. Our courses are based on fun, experiential, at-home, hands-on lab activities.

In the Bioengineering Broad Overview and Techniques (BE-BOAT) courses, students obtain an Overview of the science and engineering aspects of Bioengineering and learn Techniques in specialty areas.

In the Bioengineering Research Orientation Workshop (BE-ROW) course, students explore an area of Bioengineering in more depth through a guided Research team project.

In the Bioengineering Scholar High School Internship Project (BE-SHIP), students propose, conduct, and present a Bioengineering research project in an individual setting. The project is typically suitable for a Science/Engineering Fair.

Interested students normally progress from BE-BOAT to BE-ROW and then BE-SHIP. Students who excel in BE-BOAT may request to advance directly to BE-SHIP.

All 2020-21 courses have been developed to be done at home due to COVID19. Students will need (1) a computer and (2) a cell phone, each with internet access, camera, microphone, audio output, web browser, and Zoom software. Each course will include live sessions at weekday or weekend times. In case of conflicts, students will be able to view session recordings. Work sessions for groups of students will be scheduled weekly at convenient times.

Spots are limited in order to maintain a low student-instructor ratio. Enroll today!
