Beyond MCQST & IMPRS-QST: Alumni Network Kick-Off Event

The Alumni Network aims to bring together former and current members of our community to network and learn from one another. We believe the network will be a valuable resource for all involved, as it will offer insights into various career paths, as well as be an opportunity to connect with mentors who can help you achieve your goals.

We have a variety of activities planned for the event, including talks from successful alumni who have gone on to make a difference in their chosen fields. There will also be networking opportunities designed to help current students explore various career paths and gain insights into how to achieve success in their future careers.
