MENTORS

In addition to the core faculty and lecturer participation, the MEIE program has a Technical subject matter expert Mentor for each team of students. The CEIE Mentorship Program is a face-to-face mentoring program, whereby mentors and entrepreneurs are matched to establish an ongoing technical mentorship relationship throughout the duration of the student’s Project Development.

Business Mentor

Business Mentors

The role of the Business Mentor is to provide specialist assistance, especially with respect to the business aspect of the student project. The business mentor may also be a critical person for the student to consult in terms of market opportunities for the product/company.

Technical Mentor

Technical Mentors

Are made available to MEIE students only and are a mandatory component of the project development. The role of the technical mentor is to guide the student through the technical knowledge component of the project. The mentor is the main point of contact whilst dealing with technical questions throughout.
