Carm Vespi,

Are you a student looking for mentorship and support? Alumni share their experiences to prepare you for your future years at McMaster and beyond.


Over the years, McMaster Engineering has hosted an alumni/student mentorship evening, where distinguished alumni reconnect with McMaster and engineering students.  

Backpack to Briefcase, which will be held on Wednesday, January 22, 2020 will offer engineering students the opportunity to network and connect with mentors. 

The alumni mentors work in a variety of engineering fields, representing diverse backgrounds and bring valuable insights from their days at McMaster and beyond.  Alumni will share their experiences about academics, study skills, day-to-day issues, career planning, networking and professional development. They were students once too, they understand student goals and concerns and will be happy to address any questions that you students may have.
