COMP Mentorship Programme 2020/21 Virtual Kick-off

To enhance our students’ holistic learning experience, we have introduced COMP Mentorship Programme 2020/21 in collaboration with the Computing Alumni Association (CAA). On 26 January, a virtual kick-off was held for students to meet and connect with the alumni mentors.

Prof. Qing Li, Chair Professor and Head of COMP, kick-started the event with a warm welcome to all participants and he thanked the mentors for their support and contribution. Mr Darron Sun, the Mentorship Coordinator of CAA, gave an introduction to the Mentorship Programme followed by the sharing of each mentor from various sectors including IT, fintech, insurance, government, e-commerce, etc. We also prepared online breakout rooms for students to have different group discussions with their assigned mentors and other mentors to promote cross-industry inspiration.

The Mentorship Programme aims at providing COMP students with the opportunity to seek professional advice from the industrial mentors on personal and career development, as well as to gain an understanding of business practices, workplace culture, market trends and prospects in established professions. We hope to encourage our students to plan for their careers, acquire interpersonal skills and broaden their social networks through the mentor-mentee interactions.
