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 (working professional with 0 - 10 years of experience) and a mentor (10+ years of experience) based on the participants' interests, geographic location, and engineering discipline. Mentor/mentee pairings will last approximately 12 months. Surveys completed by all participants will be used to determine the mentor and mentee assignments. Enrollment is limited and is at the discretion of the Mentorship Committee.

  • Approach the program with a sense of commitment.

  • Determine a set of desired outcomes for the mentor/mentee relationship.

  • Discuss how the mentor and mentee will keep in touch/communicate.

    • It is recommended that the mentor and mentee meet/communicate at least every other month.

    • Be specific when planning the meetings. Include possible locations.
