The Day of the Bioscience Engineer

The wait is finally over: on Saturday November 20 we can welcome you all on the long-awaited fifth edition of the Day of the Bioscience Engineer, also known as Dag van de Bio-Ingenieur or under its previous name B.Ir-dag. The Day of the Bioscience Engineer is a day where all alumni of the faculty of Bioscience Engineering, and everyone who has some affinity with the faculty, can return to the faculty building for workshops and to reminisce about the good old days. This day is organised by the alumni association VBI, the faculty, the student organisation LBK and the ABAP representatives (FR)ACTIE.

Where and when will this awesome event take place?

The Day of the Bioscience Engineer takes place on Saturday November 20, inside and around the Landbouwinstituut, the Bar (or Baarr) and Alma 3. All these places are located inside the Arenbergpark in Heverlee. Visitors are welome starting at 14h00 and the activities will continue into the night until 2h00. However, the program is very flexible and you can arrive or leave when desired depending on which activities you want to participate in. The Baarr will also be open all afternoon, a great opportunity to catch up with old friends or to meet some new ones. The extended program is given below.

What can I go do on this event?

The program consists of several activities, some at specific timeslots and other (such as the audio tour) that are available for an extended period.

How much does this cost?

Due to the COVID situation, registration for the event is obligatory.

The base price for the afternoon program is €5. This includes the audio tour and two consumption coupons that can be used in the Baarr. The beer and chocolate tasting has an additional cost of €7. Careful, this workshop has limited space so make sure to register well in advance!

The evening program, which includes a reception and dinner, costs €25 for VBI and LBK members, €35 for non-members and €15 for children younger than 12. The cantus is free but we do ask to register in advance so we can provide enough chairs (and beer).
