Industrial Mentoring Scheme

We allocate every first-year undergraduate student an industrial mentor, supporting our students to develop into future engineers and computer scientists.

Our mentoring scheme enables students to find out about studying, graduating and industry first-hand, insights into how their mentor developed from a student into an engineer or computer scientist. Students meet their mentor, in a group of around 3-5 students, three times over a calendar year. Spanning a student's first and second years, the first meeting is in Feburary/March, the second in April-June and third in September/October. After the first meeting, hosted by us on campus, students may be able to visit their mentor on site; an invaluable opportunity to see their studies applied in the real-world.

We had the opportunity to talk to graduates who shared their stories. This advice, and my mentor’s reference, will be invaluable when I come to apply for my future career.

The mentees to date have been enthusiastic and knowledgeable, as well as being keen to learn about how to apply the skills learnt in the lecture theatres. As a business, we are proud to be involved in the scheme.
