Our Career Mentorship Program connects undergraduates (Major or Specialist) with supportive alumni of computer science, who are working in the field, and are willing to share their academic and career experiences with a student mentee who is preparing for their own path. For 12 years, hundreds of students have benefited from the insights of our graduates, and many of our mentors have been a part of our program since its inception.
The program runs from January to April. Mentors and mentees meet for the first time at a reception in mid-January. We encourage mentors and mentees to meet face-to-face at least once per month, schedule one visit during the program at the mentor's workplace (if feasible), and keep in touch by phone and/or email.
Students: How to Apply
Students are also required to attend a prep session in December prior to the first event in January, and submit reflective exercises throughout the program. Undergraduates who successfully complete all requirements will receive Co-Curricular Record (CCR) credit.
Applications will open in Fall 2017.
