ECE Faculty-Undergraduate Mentoring Program
Who Is My Mentor? - How to Find out Who Is Assigned as Your Mentor
ECE's Office of Undergraduate Studies assigns faculty mentors to each and every student majoring in either electrical or computer engineering. To learn who your faculty mentor is, as well as their contact information, check with the ECE Undergraduate Office in person in 2426 AVW or by email at email@example.com.
All returning ECE students should already have been assigned and previously met with their mentor. Thus, they should know who their mentor is. There are three groups of students who may not know who their mentor is and a fourth group of students who already have faculty mentors assigned through other programs.
- First semester freshmen
- New transfer students
- Students new to the major
- Students in Gemstone, Hinman CEO, or other special programs
If you are a first semester freshman, you will participate in the mandatory Freshman Group Mentoring sessions. If you are a transfer student new to UMCP, you will be assigned a mentor around 3-4 weeks after the beginning of the semester from the Undergraduate Office.
Once students have been assigned, the relevant faculty member is notified whereupon they will contact their you around the end of the fourth week of classes. This initial contact will most likely take the form of a group email with general guidelines on how they intend to handle their mentoring appointments. However, if you do not hear from your faculty mentor prior to the end of the seventh week of the semester, then you should take the initiative and contact them. If you have not been assigned a mentor or do not know who your mentor is by the end of the seventh week of semester, then contact the Undergraduate Office (301-405-3685) for instructions.
If you are already working closely with a faculty member, you may request them as your official mentor. Indeed, if you participate in Gemstone, Hinman CEOs, or other special programs, you may already have an assigned ECE faculty mentor in which case you should inform us immediately so we can make that person your official mentor. Even if you are in this last group of students, you will still be required to have the mentoring checklist completed and returned before being allowed to register.
