Event Description:

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 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.  Several mentors will be 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.  Mentors of all experience levels and backgrounds are welcome!

An orientation session will be held Thursday, September 10, (time TBD) on campus.  Mentors will learn about their responsibilities and can select the project they would like to contribute to at the orientation session.  Mentors will be asked to attend three classes during the semester (held on campus from 3:00-5:00 pm on Wednesdays, specific dates TBD), as you are available.  If you are interested in serving as a mentor, please contact Brandon Klenzendorf (bklenzendorf@geosyntec.com).
