Mentor a Student

As a mentor, you will have the opportunity to support one or two undergraduate and/or graduate engineering students who have similar interests.
You will benefit from the opportunity to give back to the profession by offering insight to a young person starting out in your field while strengthening your own coaching and leadership skills. The program events also offer opportunities for you to network with some of your industry peers in an informal setting.
