Student Life

BSE students enjoy the benefits of small class sizes taught by a small number of faculty. With approximately 20 students in each year of the program, there is ample opportunity for study groups, networking and socializing. Additionally, with 5 faculty members teaching most BSE classes, students build relationships with faculty that extend beyond classwork.
