Peer Mentoring

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.

 

Volunteering Development Program (VDP)

The VDP program aims to elevate engineering students by equipping them with the critical soft skills required to become a successful well-rounded engineer. As a participant, you will attend 3 workshops run by EngSoc that will cover key concepts such as: leadership, communication, strategic planning, time management, team work, negotiation and public speaking. There will also be a charity event where participants will form groups to apply the skills they have learnt by organising and running a stall to raise awareness or funds for a charity. In order to complete the program and receive AHEGS accreditation, participants must complete 4 hours of volunteering opportunities.
