The mentorship program helps retain minority students within STEM fields by allowing students to develop relationships within their major. Mentors act as advisors academically, professionally, and socially. The mentors and mentees of our program keep in close contact with each other and help each other with any questions or issues they might have in either their academic, professional, or social lives.
This industry program aims at providing the opportunity for students to connect with companies and those working within STEM fields who share similar career interests and aspirations. Students will be able to learn about the company, how to get involved, and the day-to-day work life of an engineer. They will also learn about a variety of skills needed for a successful career such as networking, leadership, stress-management, and work-life.
