ENG ME! is our student-led, College-enabled peer mentoring programme.

  • All Engineering Intermediate students and 1st year Product Design students are assigned to a peer mentoring group led by an ENG ME! Mentor who is a current Professional Year College of Engineering student who has “been there and done that” successfully. These groups will meet weekly for the first 10 weeks of Semester 1.
  • ENG ME! Mentors provide group mentoring to Engineering Intermediate students and 1st Year Product Design students in their first year of study at UC offering direction, encouragement, motivation and friendship through weekly contact for the first 10 teaching weeks of Semester 1.
  • Mentors can choose to run any of their weekly mentoring sessions as study groups and that is where our ENG ME! Tutors step in to help.
  • Mentors are able to invite ENG ME! Tutors and Academic Staff to attend sessions and answer student (mentees) questions. No preparation is required for ENG ME! Tutors, just a knowledge of the first year College of Engineering courses and an ability to explain concepts or answer questions.
