For Mentors

Applications opening May 2023

We welcome alumni and industry mentors from a breadth of sectors who have experience to share with Science, Engineering or IT students.

“Mentoring students who need advice on career choices is important. Helping them to critically think through the issues associated with these important decisions is rewarding for mentors. Being a part of the story in a student's career decisions has always been a passion of mine. The experience has enriched both myself and my mentee.”
Tracey-Ann - Mentor

"The STEM Industry Mentoring program was the exact push I needed to explore post study career options. It gave me a chance to ask all the questions I wanted about industry opportunities and future study paths in a judgement free environment. My mentor was a committed and enthusiastic mentor and I would recommend the program to anyone who isn't sure which career path to choose."
Chrissi - Mentee
