The UNSW EngSoc Peer Mentoring Program is a 9 week program which helps first year students from all engineering majors smoothly transition into life at UNSW. Peer Mentoring teams will consist of 5 to 7 mentees along with 2 experienced mentors who will help you develop your support network and create lasting friendships at UNSW. Furthermore, the Programs team will run a variety of events during the term covering social, professional and academic aspects of university life to assist mentees in familiarising themselves with the UNSW culture.
Applied Consulting for Engineers (ACE)
ACE is a six-week, AHEGS-accredited program which provides opportunities for you to learn the foundations of consulting and its importance across various engineering disciplines. With the guidance of a mentor, you will be working with fellow engineers to solve real industry cases and pitch your team’s solution to our panel of judges. You will be challenged to develop your professional and technical skills such as problem-solving and financial analysis where at the end of the program, you will be able to showcase your newfound skills through the final case competition in collaboration with one of our industry partners.
EngSoc Upskilling Program (EUP)
EUP aims to upskill engineering students by equipping them with the critical soft skills required to become a successful well-rounded engineer. As a participant, you will attend 5 workshops run by EngSoc that will cover key concepts such as: leadership, communication, strategic planning, time management, teamwork, negotiation and public speaking. At the end of the program, there will be a charity event where participants will work in groups to organise and run a stall to raise awareness for a charity. This allows participants to apply the skills they have learnt throughout the workshops. The program also consists of an industry panel to allow participants the opportunity to connect and network with alumni. By completing all workshops and attending the charity event, participants will receive AHEGS accreditation.
