Opening doors for biology students into engineering

The Bioengineering Summer Institute provides high school students who excel in biology a new way to enter the Schulich School of Engineering.

Designed specifically for students who are passionate about biology and bioengineering, the four-week Bioengineering Summer Institute allows students to pursue their interest in understanding the human body and developing biomedical.

Historically, a high school physics course was required to apply to Engineering. The Bioengineering Summer Institute allows students to be admitted to the Schulich School of Engineering using biology instead of physics.

The Institute provides the physics foundations that students will need to enter first-year engineering courses. All students who apply for UCalgary engineering with high school biology will automatically be considered for the Bioengineering Summer Institute.
