Matching Mentors with Students

The EECS mentoring committee analyzes registration information submitted by students and alumni to define optimum student-mentor matches. Subsequently, the Board notifies both the student and mentor of their match and provides them with each other’s background information.

It is the responsibility of the student to arrange an initial meeting with the mentor, either by telephone or in person (preferably). The student should contact the mentor within one week of receiving the mentor’s background information and arrange for an initial meeting within no more than two weeks of receiving the mentor’s background information.

During the initial meeting, the student and mentor should assess their satisfaction with their matches. If the student and/or mentor do not feel the match is appropriate, the mentoring committee is notified and a new mentor is matched with the student.

For Mentors



The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science was created in the spring of 2015 to allow greater access to courses offered by both departments for undergraduate and graduate students in exciting collaborative research in fields.

We offer B.S. degrees in electrical engineering, computer science, computer engineering and data science and graduate degrees (master's degrees and Ph.D.'s) in electrical engineering and computer science and engineering. EECS focuses on the convergence of technologies and disciplines to meet today’s industrial demands.
