Coaching and mentoring

As a 1st year student you will be assigned a student mentor by the Department. The student mentor helps you with the practical matters that you have to deal with related to your studies. For example, where you can buy books, what is the best way to study, and how to find your way in student life. The student mentor also helps you in making choices concerning your elective courses, starting with the electives in Q2 and Q4 in your 1st year. 

Throughout the 2nd and 3rd year of your Bachelor's program you will be assigned a teacher coach with whom you meet two/three times per academic year. The nature of the meetings with the teacher coach is mainly reflective, which means that your coach encourages you to think about your career path and professional skills and provides you with specific feedback on these reflections. The teacher coach also shares his or her expertise in the field of electrical engineering and shares his/her career path and experiences. This will provide you with helpful insights inside and outside the university that you can use for your own personal and professional development.
