The Alumni Mentoring Program
The Department of Chemical Engineering has developed an alumni mentoring program aimed to facilitate the professional development of chemical engineering undergraduate students. The program matches a student with an alumni mentor who can offer professional guidance, counsel, and networking opportunities.
Students and mentors are matched based on their background, academic, and professional interests. They have the opportunity to interact on a one-on-one basis and build strong mentoring relationships aimed at identifying career goals. It is the responsibility of the student to make initial contact with their assigned alumni mentor, as soon as possible, and to establish the frequency and nature of their communications and topics of immediate interest.
The mentoring program gives students an opportunity to talk with professionals outside of the University to gain an independent perspective of the chemical engineering industry, including different career paths and professional opportunities. Students and mentors will communicate primarily via email and phone (approximately once a month), or may choose to have face-to-face meetings when circumstances permit.
