Engineering Mentor Scheme
What is Mentoring?
Mentoring is the process by which an experienced person provides advice, support and encouragement to a less experienced person. A mentor is like a teacher or adviser who leads through guidance and example, and takes a special interest in helping another person develop into a successful professional.
A mentor helps new students to make the most of their educational experiences and to settle into the Faculty and the University.
Objectives of the Mentor Scheme
The aims and objectives of the Engineering Mentor Scheme (EMS) can be broadly summarised as assisting new students with adjustment to university life at Monash, both academically and socially. The Mentor Scheme can also help new students at risk of failing, by providing motivational role models.
By providing role models and personal encouragement, the Engineering Mentor Scheme can offer new students strong support, helping them to succeed and enjoy their studies.
