How is the BSEN program unique?
Studies show that some employers are concerned that STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) graduates lack skills beyond technical knowledge. Employers are looking for personnel with a combination of technical and non-technical skills, such as leadership experience, problem-solving, critical-thinking, teamwork, and written and oral communication.
The BSEN program seeks to bridge this skills gap and help students develop these skills by requiring courses across several disciplines and providing practical learning experiences through research and internships. This unique approach to education ensures that our graduates stand out from the competition as they pursue rewarding career opportunities.
In the Institute for Biomedical Sciences, students can gain research experience by working on exciting and innovative projects in the institute’s four research centers. They can train in modern facilities with professors who are developing vaccines, drugs and diagnostic tools to improve patient outcomes for a variety of important human diseases.
Through the institute’s biomedical industry collaborations, students can participate in internships based on their career goals, such as a master’s degree training program with the global biopharmaceutical company UCB Inc. These career-enhancing opportunities are only a short drive away.
