The Department of Mechanical Engineering organized the Mentorship Dinner 2012/2013 on 14 December 2012. 141 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 more than 80 industrial partners through this meaningful event.
In the view to facilitate the educational, social and personal growth of students studying the three full-time 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.
With continuous support from the industry, the Department has recruited 86 mentors this year. As an official kick-off of the programme, the Department has organized a Mentorship Dinner to establish a platform for industrial partners and alumni to share their experience and provide professional guidance to final year students by serving as their Mentors.
In the welcoming speech, Prof. SQ Shi, Professor and Associate Head of Department expressed appreciations towards the support rendered by industrial partners and encouraged students to make good use of the Mentorship programme to learn and gain as much as they can from their mentors.
