SWE @ UCD: Mentorship for Prospective Engineering Students
This Fall the Society of Women Engineers at UC Davis is hosting a 10 week long mentorship program to support underrepresented students who are interested in applying to engineering majors. There will be sessions with UC Davis College of Engineering advisors, professors, current students, and alumni, as well as smaller group mentorship sessions with current engineering students to help answer questions and provide more individualized support.
