Undergraduate Research

Research is a very important part of undergraduate education in Bioengineering at UCLA. Undergraduates work in UCLA faculty laboratories in the School of Engineering, College of Letters and Science, and the Medical School alongside graduate students and post-doctoral scholars to solve open-ended problems at the cutting edge of bioengineering. Research projects can be highly rewarding, allowing students explore various fields within bioengineering in depth to prepare them for future careers in industry, medicine, and research. Undergraduate students can also use their research experiences as a basis for course credit. Over 95% of UCLA Bioengineering undergraduates participate in research before graduation
