Help Build Support for Engineering

Bourns College of Engineering (BCOE), one of our nation's top-50 public engineering schools, provides life-changing learning experiences for a highly diverse population of future engineers. Many of our students are first in their family to attend college and more than 40% of our undergraduates are Pell grant recipients. Investing in BCOE pays off. Upon graduation, BCOE student receive the highest average starting salaries of any degree program at UCR. BCOE contributes significantly to UCR being recognized as the number one university for social mobility. Will you join us in building transformational engineering programs to enhance the lives of our students, their families, and their communities?

Morikis Scholarship

Dimitrios Morikis, UC Riverside professor and founding faculty member of the Department of Bioengineering, passed away May 27, 2019. Well known for his work in immunophysics and immunoengineering, Professor Morikis used physics and engineering to understand molecular mechanisms of immunology, develop disease models, and design new drugs and molecular sensors for autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. Morikis is remembered as a caring teacher and devoted mentor. To keep his legacy alive, the new Dimitrios Morikis Bioengineering Scholarship will provide annual scholarship support to both undergraduate and graduate students studying bioengineering.
