Mentoring Program – Social

Engineering Mentoring Program for 2022-23

We are now recruiting for the UBC Applied Science Engineering Mentoring Program, which offers an outstanding opportunity to develop impactful relationships with industry professionals and other students.

Mentees will engage in a triad-model of mentorship, where you will be matched with another student and an industry professional.

Why participate in the Engineering Mentoring Program?

  • Develop fundamental skills in successful relationship building
  • Gain support and clarity around career building transitions and network development
  • Enhance your own leadership skills through peer-to-peer mentorship
  • Begin establishing your network connections before graduation
  • Learn about resiliency, goal setting, and other strategies for navigating university

Here’s what our previous mentees are saying:

I met an incredible mentor who helped me understand the next steps I need to take to succeed in Engineering as an international student.

It was invaluable to make connections with someone who has been in your shoes and can provide insight into possible career paths and any other advice.
