We will accept 54 science-minded students from the class of 2026 to join our competitive, three-year cross-curricular program in August 2023.
Many of our students have aspirations to work in a field of science or medicine, while some aspire to go into fields such as law, marketing, business, or finance. Through our program, these students learn how the biotechnology industry is supported by these professions. We also have students who aspire to be educators, computer scientists, filmmakers, and performing artists. Whatever path they take, their science minds will serve them well.

Commitment to the program:
Campus-wide, schedule changes will not be permitted after mid-May; therefore, students who accept our invitation to enroll in BTI will not be able to drop the program over the summer or in August when we return. Additionally, students who join the program are making a minimum of a one-year commitment.
