Engineering Students Peer Network
Students who are transitioning into a new stage of their academic career are often faced with many questions and uncertainties. Connecting with other students who have recently made a similar transition—their peer network—can be invaluable as a source of information and support for these new students. The Engineering Students Peer Network (ESPN) connects incoming engineering students with more senior students in the program to help them to establish their network.
How it works
Students who are currently enrolled in, or have been accepted to Engineering One (mentee) can sign-up and will be paired with a senior student (mentor) based on preferred major or other interests.
- Mentors and their mentees are encouraged to meet, either in-person or virtually at least monthly. These meetings should be organized directly between mentors and mentees.
- The Engineering Student Society will organize various events for all mentors and mentees to enable more broad networking and discussion of topics of interest.
- ESPN is a safe space – disrespect or discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated.
Engineering One students, including newly admitted applicants, can sign-up here.
Senior Engineering students (Terms 5 – 8) who would like to be a mentor can sign-up here. Mentors will be expected to participate in several training sessions provided by Memorial Student Life.
