UBC BCIT biotech networking night 2020

The UBC-BCIT Biotechnology Club, along with the UBC Microbiology & Immunology Students Association and the UBC Science Undergraduate Society, are back with the 2nd annual Biotech Networking Night!

If you’re looking to get into the biotechnology business or are simply curious about the biotechnology sector, this is a great opportunity to meet like-minded individuals. This will be a networking and career-building event, where students, professors, and alumni from BCIT and UBC, as well as representatives from more than 10 local biotechnology companies, will be invited to discuss career paths, goals, and future job prospects.

This year, the event will be hosted at UBC in the Great Hall of the AMS Student Nest, so come join us to socialize, connect, and network with company representatives, faculty, and fellow students.

Refreshments will be served and a cash bar (19+) will be on site.
