Become a mentor for students in computer science/IT

To contribute to a young person's personal development, or to give young people the opportunity to receive support from a person with longer experience in the chosen profession, is invaluable! At Linnaeus University, we offer mentorship programs for students. Currently we are looking for mentors who want to assist and support students on our computer science/IT programmes in their personal development.

What are the benefits of being a mentor?

  • You get new perspectives and can discuss thoughts and ideas with someone who takes a different view of the industry.
  • It is rewarding to reflect on your work and inspire others who are interested in the same field.
  • You can contribute to a young person's personal development.
  • You expand your network of contacts and exchange experiences with students and other mentors in the industry.

What is the setup?

  • Start-up session in October
    The mentor program starts with a joint start-up meeting for all students and mentors. You are also given the opportunity to make a plan together.
  • Meetings with your adept
  • Final session in April
    The ending session of the mentor program in April will summarize, evaluate and allow for follow-up.
