Program Goals

  • Explore possible career paths in information technology.

    It’s exciting to be part of a growing and changing profession. With that come a lot of choices and decisions. You and your mentor will take the time to explore your interests and different career possibilities.

  • Learn various job responsibilities.

    Part of knowing what you want to do is understanding what you’ll be doing on a daily basis. The mentorship program carves out time to break down the specifics of what professionals do day in and day out.

  • Connect your classroom work to a career.

    Working with a mentor helps you see firsthand how what you do as a student prepares you for life as a professional.

  • Develop soft skills.

    Knowledge and ability contribute to your success in information technology, but you also need soft skills such as communicating effectively, thinking strategically, and being a good team player, to have a fulfilling career.
