Engineering Alumni-Student Career Mentoring Program
The Engineering Alumni-Student Career Mentoring Program matches students and alumni in yearlong one-to-one mentoring pairs. The goal of the Program is to provide students with additional support in identifying and pursuing their career goals through professional networking with experienced Cooper Union alumni. We believe that engineering students have much to gain from the professional expertise and life experiences of engineering alumni and we encourage you to participate in this worthwhile program!

"My mentor pushed me to explore and expand my boundaries, both professionally and personally. I've come out more confident, eager to learn, and ready to tackle new opportunities. Listening to my mentor’s experiences helped me understand how I should handle myself professionally. He was very helpful with any sorts of questions I had about industry."
