Last year, the Faculty of Science organized an open house for undergraduate students considering graduate studies in science. Our Open House is being held next Tuesday, March 12th, 2019 from 5:00pm-6:30pm. It’s being held in CIBC Hall on the third floor of the Student Centre (MUSC 319). Just like last year, this is a free event, and we will have tea, coffee and snacks for all attendees. If you’re interested in learning more about graduate studies at McMaster, this is a great opportunity to get information about the application requirements and process, as well as speaking directly to students currently in the program(s) you’re interested in. It’s never too early to start gathering information, so even if you’re only in first or second year, this event is still very much for you.
Professionals currently in a Biochemistry-related field of work are invited to talk to undergraduate students about their current job and past experiences. Guests include those from healthcare, research, and industry (look below for more information on our wonderful guests).
Coffee and Tea will be provided.
Sarrah Lal - Senior Manager at Micheal DeGroote Initiative for Innovation in Health Care
Amelia Guo - Master’s Student in Dr. Eric Brown’s Lab
Victoria Marko - Research Technician at McMaster University
Lydia Van Delft- QA Manager
Are you a first year interested in specializing in Biochemistry in Level II? Come and learn more about what the program has to offer, and ask questions to students who are currently in the program. Students from different years will be present to share their experiences. This is a great way to get exposed to the program and what to expect should you choose to go into it. Snacks are also provided!
