Faculty in the NSE Department have doctorates and master’s degrees from some of the best universities in the country, and bring their research experience and education to the classroom to provide a rigorous and challenging environment for learning.

We are dedicated to BHC students, and push them to excel academically by challenging them in the classroom and the laboratory. Careers in science and engineering require a strong foundation. Our programs are designed to help our students be successful regardless of their transfer or career plans.
