Mentorship Program

Registration Closed

Mission Statement

The Mentorship Program pairs young working professionals with experienced engineers to provide guidance, broaden perspectives, and build lasting one-on-one relationships.

Program Overview

The Mentorship Committee will aim to create suitable matches between a mentee and a mentor based on the participants' interests, geographic location, and engineering discipline. Mentor/mentee pairings will last approximately 12 months. Mentor and mentee assignments will be based on both the initial application completed by all participants and a round of interviews between potential mentors and mentees. Enrollment is limited and is at the discretion of the Mentorship Committee.
