The Start of CSEAA Mentorship Programme 2014
The Computer Science and Engineering Alumni Association (CSEAA) has started a one-year mentorship programme in March 2014. The programme aims at bringing mutual benefits to both the mentors and mentees and nurturing the latter into future pillars of the society. It is the first mentorship programme in the history of CSE.
Most of the mentors are graduates of CSE or related programmes at HKUST. The mentees are COMP/CPEG students, recent graduates, and first year students who are interested in pursuing the related programmes for their future studies.
The kick-off event was held on 29 March 2014 at HKUST. The Amber Rainstorm Warning Signal did not hinder the enthusiasm of participants. Over 30 mentors, more than 70 mentees, and around 10 faculty members joined the event. Mentors and mentees were formed into groups to play dramas in which excellent creativity and team spirit were demonstrated. Most of the participants could not wait and immediately scheduled their next meetings.
CSEAA Mentorship Programme is expected to be recurring in the coming years. Thus, we are looking for proactive CSE alumni to join our committee team and contribute in this big family.
