Mentorship

One of the new services that the mentorship portfolio offers is the mentorship program. The mentorship program is a one-on-one guidance opportunity for younger Engineering students as they are paired up with Senior Engineering Mentors. These mentors learn valuable leadership skills in the process while telling younger students all about what the former wished someone had told them. We also seek to expose both mentors, mentees and also the wider engineering student community to the industry and various other academic issues by hosting professional development sessions that are including but not limited to the Engineering Alumni Panel, Diversity in Engineering, etc. The program is fairly new, going into its third year now. It therefore has fresh perspectives and ideas and has plenty of room to grow and improve while continuing to serve the Engineering Students.

Upcoming Mentorship Events

Mentorship Program: Speed Dating Event

The Mentorship program kick starts with an event that gathers the prospective mentors and mentees out for a mixer night. The matching of mentor to mentee will be done in a “speed dating” style. Mentees will be asking questions and getting to know a variety of available mentors and connect with them socially. The matching process will be a ranking system which enhances the mentorship program – where students can actually find someone that is similar to them in thinking and overall life experiences. This event will be the backbone of the Mentorship Program. Event begins on 9/19/2016 at 5:00pm.
