Participate in the UBC Applied Science Engineering Mentoring Program, which offers an outstanding opportunity to develop impactful relationships with industry professionals and other students, while developing vital communication skills.
Why participate in the Engineering Mentoring Program?
- Develop fundamental skills in successful relationship building

- Receive exclusive Mentorship Program Toolkits designed to support and enhance how best to engage and connect with industry professionals and other students
- Enhance your own leadership skills through peer-to-peer mentorship

Mentees will engage in a triad-model of mentorship, where they will be matched with another student and an industry professional. Students in the undergrad first-year stream will be matched with an upper-year student as well as an industry mentor. With an emphasis on relationship-based networking, you will engage with your group while exploring themed outcomes designed to support and enhance career development.
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.
