Title: Building the Bridge Together: How Advising and Advancement Created an Industry Mentorship Program
Lead Presenter: Barry Tolchin
Date: October 07, 2021    Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Room: Zoom Room 4
Abstract: The Department of Civil, Environmental, and Geodetic Engineering started an industry mentorship program in 2014. We pair current students with alumni to connect them to industry, and engage alumni with our department. In six years, we have grown from 9 students and 5 mentors, to 65 students and 59 mentors. Students have increased their academic engagement, obtained internships, full-time positions, and developed meaningful professional relationships through this experience. We will share what we have learned, and provide some helpful tips for starting your own program. We will also have some students and mentors participate to share their experience, and answer your questions. Please join us for an interactive program that will show you how advising, advancement, alumni, students, and industry have come together to create a unique, engaging, and incredibly beneficial experience!
