Student Care Support 

Academic Mentoring

As a NTU EEE student, you will be assigned to a professor who will be your mentor throughout your entire programme in the School. During this important period where you are adapting to your university life (being in a new environment or culture, knowing new people, new curriculum or facing new demands), some of you may find it difficult to adapt to your new social life.

These transitional stresses can cause disengagement (withdrawal from involvement in an activity or group) which leads to underperforming and/or harbouring negative feelings which can affect your school or personal life. Academic mentoring is one of the support that you can rely on, especially when you are going through the transitional period.

You can seek informed advice and guidance in areas of studies such as course structure, course registration, time management, university life,  student exchange programmes, Academic Unit System (AUs), DIP, URECA, IA, FYP, and other resources available in the school, library, etc. It is important that you have adequate social support so that the School can identify and render help to you if required. Even if you are adapting well in this transition period, academic mentoring is also a platform for you to establish and expand your personal or professional network, seek advice on career advancement in the industry as well as research and academic opportunities in universities and research institutions.
