The College of Engineering believes that our students would benefit from a complementary form of support offered through our talented and loyal alumni network.
We recognize that our students are multifaceted and have concerns that extend beyond their coursework. Many do not have an engineer in their family or existing network. Many are unsure about what they can do with their engineering degree or what the realities of a career in engineering are. Furthermore, our students have explicitly expressed their desire for more contact with alumni. Our alumni are, in turn, interested in giving back and reconnecting with their alma mater. Thus, the College of Engineering is launching the pilot of its Engineering Alumni Mentor Program in fall of 2016.
Alumni applications for the 2018-2019 Alumni Mentoring Program will remain open through June 1. If you have questions about the program, please see contact information on page 5 of the Mentor Handbook.
Priority student applications for the Alumni Mentoring Program were accepted through May 15, 2018. Applications received by May 16 or later will be placed on a standby list. If you are on the standby list and a mentor is found for you, you will be notified by early September 2018.
