The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science’s mentoring program provides leadership and direction to our students for a real-world perspective. EECS alumni are the mentors and offer guidance, counsel and networking opportunities for students beginning in their fifth semester or start of their junior year. Ideally, the structured mentoring program continues for two years until the student graduates.
The program helps students explore the various opportunities available to them following graduation as well as providing information to ensure that they are choosing a specialization appropriate to their interests. The mentoring relationship is evaluated every semester and adjusted if needed. Students and alumni mentors are matched based on their background and interests and interact on a one-to-one basis to assist the student with their academic and professional development.
Typically, mentors will be matched with students at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters.
