The BSBT program serves as an excellent springboard to jump-start a career in industry or academia. There are so many opportunities for learning and growing your skillset, from the academically rigorous classes to hands on training in on-campus labs. The program recruits students and instructors with a diverse range of backgrounds and interests such that you are exposed to a vast range of career possibilities. For anyone interested in a career in the sciences the BSBT program presents an excellent two-year investment."
