Registration is now open for the upcoming Highline College Engineering Mentor Night on Tuesday, April 21st from 6-8pm. All engineering disciplines are encouraged to attend.
Here is a hyperlink to the registration form;
This Mentor Night, co-sponsored by the Puget Sound Engineering Council (PSEC) and Highline College will give engineering students (freshmen, sophmores, & occasionally high school students) an opportunity to ask questions in person from a variety of practicing engineers, engineering alumni, and faculty about the wide spectrum of engineering disciplines, professions, career pathways, continuing education post-graduation, professional registration considerations, professional engineering organizations, responsibilities, and ethics over food and refreshments.
- Meet professional engineers
- Explore opportunities in engineering
- Get advice from professionals
- Learn more about employment in engineering
Mentors are asked to bring physical examples of their work, engineering drawings to share, something to focus the student’s attention, and/or information about their professional societies and scholarship information that will fit on a 30″ x 30″ table top for potential discussion with the students.
Ideally, one-on-one discussions are preferred, with the goal being no more than five students are talking to a single Mentor at once, which on a busy night becomes almost a mini-presentation, with some individual questions being answered. Students rotate between mentor to mentor freely approximately every fifteen minutes over the course of two hours. There are no expectations to have an ongoing or follow-up mentoring relationship with any student unless both parties desire it.
Mentors will be sent a Parking Pass, Campus Map, and Directions prior to the event following registration.
