Student & Alumni Mentorship Program

Launched in 2015, the Student & Alumni Mentorship Program connects current IEMS undergraduate and graduate students to alumni of the department. Students are able to discuss career questions directly with alumni in their fields of interest. Alumni are able to give back to the department and help guide students through a significant time of professional decisions.

  • Please be timely in your email response back to your mentee
  • Have at least 1 phone call (or coffee meeting) with your mentee
