The Center for Biotechnology & Engineering is a four-year program of study for academically motivated students with interests in science, engineering, and related fields. This rigorous program of studies emphasizes the broad understanding of theory and the application of science and engineering to real world issues. It provides students with opportunities to pursue authentic and meaningful, hands-on research projects. The Biotechnology & Engineering Program also provides students a rich environment of integrated humanities and the opportunity to enroll in a variety of Advanced Placement (AP) science and mathematics courses.
