Engineers Australia have long been a fundamental part of the engineering culture throughout Australia, and their new pilot Mentoring Program in the Canberra region is set to lead the way again. The Engineers Australia Mentoring Program (EAMP) has been developed to form relationships between all levels of Engineers across varying disciplines; a great opportunity for young engineers to obtain experience and knowledge working directly with high level engineers as well as opportunities for networking within the industry.
Our very own Brad Armstrong from the BMM office is a member of the subcommittee organising the program and said “The mentor’s involved, [all qualified members of Engineers Australia] will have the opportunity to give back to the community and assist in fostering the next generation of Canberra’s engineers. The generational passing down of information, or mentor/mentee relationship is an important one, especially in the field of engineering. By providing this industry knowledge to the next wave of engineers, along with new industry technology, it lights the way for innovation and progress.
With no cost to the individuals involved, the program is aimed at engineering students from ANU, UC, UNSW and CIT, as well as young and mid-career engineers located in Canberra. The mentor/mentee partnership will continue for 12 months and will be based on mutual interests across varying engineering fields to maximise effectiveness.
Register your interest to be a mentor or mentee by Friday, 21 April 2017.
Applications will be accepted after this date but placements will depend on availability of mentees and mentors.
Date: Thurs 27th April 3:30pm- 7:30pm
Location: Engineers Australia Auditorium, Engineering House, 11 National Circuit Barton ACT 2600
