About

The engineer is to serve as a mentor to the students. "Mentoring is a system for pairing an experienced person with a lesser experienced one, for the purpose of having the lesser experienced person grow and develop the required competencies."

He/she may be involved in all phases of the competition as an advisor to provide input and technical assistance. It is important to tie-in real life engineering experiences as students work on the competition. Students must do all of the actual work, such as the computer design of the city, building the model, writing the essay and abstract, and giving the verbal presentation.

Mentoring is "about advising, teaching, coaching, and providing a guidance system. It's not handholding. It's not making decisions that should be made by the individual. It's not promoting the cause of an individual for some personal recognition or gain. It's not only working with fast-trackers.

The mentor helps the engineer make the transition from the academic to the real world of engineering."
