Science and Engineering Program (SEP) is a division of the Metropolitan College of Boston University. The program has been discontinued by Boston University this year and is not accepting anymore students for the upcoming academic year. However, existing students are part of a two-year program which focus studies on math and science to give the students a stronger background to continue in either the Boston University College of Arts and Sciences or the Boston University College of Engineering. To make room for the extra course load students must complete a summer semester their freshman year. It consists of either a Physics 2 class if the students has taken Calculus 1 and 2 over the academic year or a Physics 1 and 2 sequence with a Calculus 2 semester. The latter is for students who started off with Pre-Calculus in the fall and since Calculus 1 is a pre-requisite for Physics 1, the three classes must be done in the summer. The program offers MET versions of regular class the university offers, the main difference is that the typical class size is less than 20 students per class. The personal attention to the student is a very big factor to students' success in the program; each student has access to all the university's facilities and the very helpful faculty of SEP. Cathy Lysy is the advisor for the entire program. Dr. Carla Romney is the chair of the entire program.
