MEDIT is a mentorship programme at Chalmers aimed at students in years 2–5 in the MSc programmes Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Engineering. The spots are primarily awarded to fourth-year students, but students in lower years may also participate if spots are available.
Both parties can benefit greatly from a mentorship relationship. The mentorship can be considered a partnership for learning that gives the mentor the opportunity to share their experiences. The mentor is also given the opportunity for self-reflection in dialogue with their mentee, and training in direct leadership in forms where humility, openness and being a team player are the foundation of the relationship. Through their mentor, the mentee is given the opportunity to reflect over thoughts and ideas, figure out what motivates them, and receive moral support and career guidance.
The mentorship programme is a collaboration between Chalmers and Swedish Association of Electrical and Computer Engineers (SER).
