About the Program
The Global Engineering Mentorship Program creates an opportunity for engineering professionals to help develop future leaders from September to April each year. Our mentorship program develops global leaders by exposing passionate and interested students (mentees) to the experiences, stories and ideas of engineering graduates (mentors).
Who Runs the Program?
The Mentorship Program is run by the University of Calgary Engineers Without Borders Chapter. The Calgary City Chapter supports the program by advertising and recruiting for volunteers among its membership.
