The Department of Mechanical Engineering organized the Alumni Mentorship Dinner 2013/2014 on 20 March 2014 which timed to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the commencement of degree programme in the department.
120 final year students of BEng(Hons) in Mechanical Engineering, BEng(Hons) in Product Analysis and Engineering Design and Double Degree Programme in Business Administration and Engineering treasured the opportunity to interact with and learn from 55 invited Alumni Mentors through this meaningful event.
In the view to facilitate the educational, social and personal growth of students studying the undergraduate programmes, the Department of Mechanical Engineering has established a Mentorship Programme. The Department aims to establish a caring and supportive relationship between industrial partners, alumni and undergraduates, and hence to enhance students' future professional and career development and to empower mentees to face challenges in society.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the commencement of department’s degree programme. The Department has invited 55 Alumni Mentors to share their experience and give advice to our final year students. The participation of Alumni Mentor is of tremendous value towards the Department’s goal because as graduates, they possess a background of a total learning experience over the years at the Department together with solid working experience in relevant and professional context.
In the welcoming remark, Prof. L Cheng, Chair Professor and Head of Department expressed appreciations towards the support rendered by the alumni and encouraged students to make good use of the event to learn and gain as much as they can from their mentors.
