Given that engineering is one of the most lucrative career paths, it does a student well to select this area of study early on. BLI offers programs in robotics, aerodynamics, mechanics, and more, all of which require students to develop advanced critical thinking skills and techniques. Whether it be an airplane or a prosthetic limb, high school students rarely have the opportunity to study the inner-workings of our most fascinating technology like they do in BLI’s Engineering programs.

For students on the pre-med track, there is no better credential to add to a college application than a three-week, competitive admissions research program. Students may practice suturing skills, emergency procedures, or anatomy research, spending hours each day in the lab assisted by experienced TAs and outstanding instructors. Future medical students will thrilled by the active, hands-on nature of BLI’s Medicine programs.
