Cal Day

Imagine seeing the most exciting, outrageous, informative aspects of Berkeley and the College of Engineering, all in one day. Now mark Saturday, April 21, 2018 on your calendar. It’s called Cal Day, an extravaganza of events that showcase the brilliance and fun of Berkeley. 

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 more than 90 events, including demonstrations, lab tours, exhibits and lectures. Check out our Cal Day 2018 guide to plan for an action-packed, behind-the-scenes look at Berkeley Engineering.

Whether you want to know about civil engineering or synthetic biology, campus housing or student clubs, you can find it here on Cal Day. Visit the Engineering Student Services information table at the Bechtel Engineering Center, and you’ll be able to talk with Berkeley Engineering faculty, students and staff. We’ll see you here!

(And if you can't make it for Cal Day, you can still visit Berkeley Engineering throughout the year, and even take a self-guided walking tour (PDF)  of the Berkeley Engineering quadrant.)
