Meet ConneCie: In Silico’s Career and Education Committee

As Bioinformatics and Biocomplexity master students, we face numerous decisions shaping our academic and professional paths. Questions like “Which courses should I take?”, “Where do I find my next internship?”, and “Where do I want to work after my studies?” are common among us.

ConneCie is here to assist in answering these questions, by creating an informal study guide that aids students in selecting the courses that fit them best. Additionally, we organize feedback sessions, encouraging students to share their opinions on courses and actively participate in course evaluations.

Additionally, ConneCie organizes workshops on hard and soft skills which are not normally covered in courses.

Aiming to bridge the gap between academia and industry, we organize lunch lectures and an annual career day. Connecting students with prospective employers, creating opportunities for networking and career exploration.
