Problem-solvers, creatives, and tinkerers are natural fits for an engineering mentorship. Detail-oriented students can work on their skills designing, testing and building machines, structures or processes using math and science. Students’ projects may research, invent or refine processes across a wide range of fields including medicine, the built environment, transport, electronics, and much more. Completing a mentorship in engineering develops students’ problem solving, computer science, data modeling, and leadership skills.
