Chris Pepper from IBM’s NCSU Pathfinder Mentoring Program stopped by to talk about this great opportunity.

Seems like a great, no pressure opportunity that is a low-key, informal way to network with the “real world”. A perfect chance for students to meet with working professionals in their “domain expertise” and talk about projects, problems and practice.

  • Provide students some insight into professional life to better prepare themselves while at school
  • Professionals meet with students approx. monthly to discuss career experiences, technical job trends, answer questions, provide insight to engineering profession
  • One semester duration – the student and advisor can continue the relationship longer if they choose to
  • Potential IBM visits and lab tours to give student a view of what goes on at IBM
  • Two-way feedback – hear from student how to improve the program
  • For students in Electrical Engineering , Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Human Factors, Technical Communications, Industrial Design and Graphics Design
