Program for Industry Exploration (PIE)
The goal of PIE is to help expose graduate students to careers in industry and connect students with industry professionals. PIE will accomplish these goals through site visits to companies in the Research Triangle. PIE has received the support of the UNC Graduate School through the Leadership Development Scholars Program.
The first site visit has been arranged with Syngenta in RTP on Friday, March 14 at 1pm. Syngenta is a global biotechnology company focused on crops and plant technologies. Over 300 employees work at Syngenta's RTP office. Several BCBP alumni work for Syngenta in either the RTP or Greensboro facilities. The March 14 visit will include a tour of the facilities and information on some of the scientific and business strategies that Syngenta is implementing. I am also working on arranging for some networking or opportunity to meet current employees while we're there.
