Become a Mentor!
The goal of this program is to bring together undergraduate engineering students and engineering alumni for an exchange of information on education, professionalism, aspirations and ideas. These relationships provide a learning experience for students outside the classroom, where they have a chance to see the opportunities that a professional environment has in store for them.
