Ten Thousand Coffees is a networking platform where students can seek out career advice and mentorship regarding their program of study. How does it work? A student who is interested can sign up and search the online tool for ECE alumni or current graduate students who match their interests. If a connection is made, the student and the alumni/grad student mentor can connect for advice over “virtual coffee” either by phone or online. Alumni are also encouraged to use the platform themselves for networking with others whose experiences might interest them, including faculty, staff and other fellow alumni.
Volunteer as a mentor with the UBC Engineering Mentoring Program – share your knowledge and experience with students who are defining their career path, expanding their professional network and developing important professional skills. As a mentor, you will have the opportunity to support one or two undergraduate and/or graduate engineering students who have similar interests. Our goal for our mentors is to connect with their mentee(s) on a monthly basis after the formal launch of the program in September of each year.
