Industry mentors can help students develop greater self-awareness, provide honest and constructive feedback, expose them to engineering and other industry work environments, and encourage them to achieve goals.
As a mentee, students will be connected to an experienced engineering mentor who is eager to serve as a resource for personal and professional development. Their mentor may provide industry connections, advice and skill-building opportunities.
As a mentor, professionals will help build student mentee’s industry experience by providing expert guidance. Mentors work with the mentee to help chart a personal plan for success.
The Industry Mentor Program includes training sessions, one-on-one guidance from an experienced industry professional and invitations to networking events. Participants will commit to these program specifications:
- Being involved for a minimum of one academic year (August – May)
- Participating in regular one-on-one meetings
- Attending training sessions
- Keeping discussions confidential
- Enlisting the help of Hart Center staff, as needed
- Notifying the Hart Center of any changes in contact information
For any additional questions or comments, contact Kathy Hubbard, director of the Hart Center for Engineering Leadership, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-768-3033.
