Like other BSc programs, this program has some courses with lab components. However, our labs are offered to promote flexibility for students. We have developed home lab kits for some of our Science courses. In addition, some of our courses have virtual labs. A few labs do require on-site attendance, but we have made it as flexible as possible by condensing the lab and also by allowing students to complete multiple labs in one trip.
