International Mentoring Foundation for the Advancement of Higher Education
This current academic year 2016-2017, IMP-Engineering will provide personal mentoring to 75 students (graduates and undergraduates) from 8 Spanish Universities (Universidad de Valencia, Universidad de La Laguna, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Universidad de Valladolid, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Universidad de Oviedo, Universidad Politécnica de Valencia and Universidad de Sevilla).
We count on with 38 mentors, with a broad and recognized international career, that are affiliated with the most prestigious universities, hospitals and research institutes (Harvard University, MIT, Princeton, Stanford University or Johns Hopkins University). These 38 mentors will contribute their personal experience, their first-hand knowledge of the academic/professional world and their specific training in advising to optimizing the professional career of their mentees through regular videoconferencing, frequent exchange of emails, sharing information on job, training or funding opportunities, and counseling when faced with decisions.
IMP-Engineering will also provide mentorship to an unlimited number of students through webinars of professional development where Spanish and international experts, that have reached the zenith of their careers will give advice and insights about several career paths in engineering (research, industry, start-ups, intellectual property, academia).
Students from the Universities of La Laguna, Autónoma de Madrid, Valladolid, Politecnica de Valencia, Universidad de Valencia, Malaga and Sevilla, may receive a summer scholarship (one scholarship will be given per University). The selected students will be able to stay several weeks in some of the world’s most prestigious Universities.
We are certain that the mentorship provided by IMP-Engineering will prepare our students to a future full of professional possibilities. If your university is involved in IMP-Engineering, do not hesitate to REGISTER!
