Engaging Students


Student Industry Networking Event (SINE)

The BIO5 Institute and BioIndustry Organization Southern Arizona (BIOSA)'s SINE event has been successful at connecting hundreds of UAZ students with representatives from the Arizona bioscience industry annually. Each year SINE will attract undergraduate and graduate students in life sciences, medicine, chemistry, engineering, computer and information sciences and business programs and put them face-to-face with many bioscience organizations from across Arizona.

This learning opportunity is important to students in being able to prepare for future jobs in industry, business, service organizations, and/or administration. They are able to meet potential mentors, secure summer internships, and, in many cases, even achieve permanent employment after graduation with their internship hosts. We encourage students to consult with the industry leaders and UAZ alumni who participate in SINE about employment strategies and professional tips to ease the transition from college to the workforce.

The 15th Student Industry Networking Event will commence on February 15, 2023 from 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm.
