LBK for companies


The Student Association LBK represents all students of Bioscience-engineering of the KU Leuven. With more than one thousand members LBK offers their students not only recreational activities, but also assists them in the development of their future career. In doing so LBK creates the perfect environment for Bioscience Engineers to develop both personally and professionally. Bioscience Engineering is a very broad term. A Bioscience Engineer aims to apply technology to living systems as well as apply principles of nature to technology. This concept involves very diverse and extensive disciplines such as the chemical industry, food - and pharmaceutical industry, biomedical applications, biotechnology and genetics, earth management, agricultural innovation and economics, environmental technology, bio-informatics and other disciplines. All these different aspects are incorporated in our seven Majors: Biosystems, Cellularand Genetic Engineering, Catalytic technology, Land-use Planning and Management, Agricultural Engineering, Food Technology and Environmental Engineering. Because of this broad employability, extensive academic knowledge and the ability to provide analytical and problem-solving thinking, a Bioscience Engineer will always be an asset to your company!

Our students are eager to get to know you! Graduate students are actively looking for a quality job to start a rewarding career, and they aspire to work with leaders in the industry. LBK Corporate Relations is a communication medium widely used by our students to assist them in developing their future careers. Furthermore, many students are actively looking for an internship of four to six weeks during the summer between their third Bachelor and second Master year. In addition to providing you with opportunities for publicity, LBK Corporate Relations also offers your Company the option to recruit both graduate Bioscience Engineers and Bioscience Engineering students.
