Imagine seeing the most exciting, outrageous, informative aspects of Berkeley and the College of Engineering, all in one day. It’s called Cal Day, an extravaganza of events that showcase the brilliance and fun of Berkeley.

(Note: As part of campus efforts to reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus, Cal Day will not be held in 2020. However, we’re putting together an entire week of online programs to help new students and others explore Berkeley Engineering; visit Cal Week 2020 for details.)

On Cal Day, the College of Engineering hosts potential students and their families, current students, alumni and the general public as part of the campus community’s open house. We present scores of events, including demonstrations, lab tours, exhibits and lectures. Whether you want to know about civil engineering or synthetic biology, campus housing or student clubs, you can find it here on Cal Day.

Even without Cal Day, you can visit Berkeley Engineering throughout the year, and even take a self-guided walking tour (PDF)  of the Berkeley Engineering quadrant.
