The College of Engineering invites students, alumni, and employers to participate in our Mentorship Program, which pairs students with people in the industries in which they hope to work upon graduation. The purpose of the program is to help students transition into the community and workforce by encouraging interactions and counseling between current students and former students and friends of the College.

Mentorship program calendar

The mentorship program encourages mentors and students to meet about three times a semester, including both formal mentorship program events such as orientation as well as less formal meetings for coffee or lunch.

One-on-one gatherings will need to be arranged during the assigned weeks, but we will provide themes or questions to consider each week to help you keep a thoughtful and productive dialog.
