The Bioscience Engineering Career Event is co-organised by the student associations VLK and LILA and the alumni association ABIG, linked to the faculty of Bioscience Engineering at Ghent University.
The goal of this career event is to bring companies of all possible industries together with the bio-engineers and the industrial engineers of the future. 85+ companies will attend the job fair. We hope to be able to help you in your search for your first job or in finding an interesting internship.
