Program description

The Protege Program is a mentoring program run by the Women In Engineering Society to help first year girls transition from high school into university. Mentees are matched with a mentor and placed in a group with other mentees. Throughout the semester we run 3 main events to allow mentees to socialise with other program participants. Additionally regular meetings are encouraged between groups and to facilitate this weekly challenges are set for groups to complete.
