The scheme aims to encourage alumni to give back to their alma mater through giving advice, and sharing their work and life experiences with the mentees, it also creates opportunities for mentees to broaden their social networks. This year, the scheme runs from September 2022 to January 2023, a series of exciting group activities will be organized to encourage them to actively participate in the scheme.
