UT Austin Mentoring Program

Mentoring Opportunity with Civil Engineering Seniors at The University of Texas at Austin

The Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering is recruiting volunteers from the ASCE Austin Branch for next semester, to serve as mentors for seniors in the civil engineering program.  Serving as a mentor is an excellent opportunity to assist with public service projects in our community, identify potential new hires for your company, get your company name out in the local community, and earn three professional development hours (PDHs) for licensure.

Students are organized into teams to work on real-world projects for real-world clients.  If possible, two mentors are assigned to each team to support students in developing a sound technical approach, preparing an oral presentation for a stakeholder meeting, and delivering a brief written report to their client.  While mentors are certainly asked to provide technical advice as the project develops, a very important component of this course is to expose students to the non-technical aspects of our work as we collaborate with team members, clients, and stakeholder communities.   

Working with the mentors has been an extremely valuable experience for our students, and several are currently employed by their former mentors.  Mentors of all experience levels and backgrounds are welcome!

If you are interested in serving as a mentor, or would like to learn more, please contact Paul Hahn (paul.hahn@aguirre-fields.com).
