Career Mentor Link matches professionals with students, providing an opportunity for students to benefit from the industry knowledge and career experience of their mentors.

Students (mentees) are encouraged to seek advice and information about their career direction and employment goals while mentors share their industry skills and insights and take an active interest in the career development of the student.

UWA Women in Engineering program

The UWA Women in Engineering program runs within the same format as Career Mentor Link so all the information on this website is relevant.


This one-on-one mentoring program is run in conjunction with faculties and aims to:

  • support students in developing skills to manage their career
  • provide students with an industry perspective to enhance their academic learning
  • prepare students for transition to the workplace
  • establish mutually beneficial relationships between industry, the University and its students


The Career Mentor Link and Women in Engineering programs run from April to October each year. The 2017 programs will be launched at a breakfast on Tuesday 4 April 2017.

Career Mentor Link

Career Mentor Link is open to currently enrolled students in any discipline who have completed at least one year of study, and industry professionals with a minimum of four years' workplace experience. Ideally, students should be enrolled at the University for the full year.

Mentors in the Career Mentor Link program can be male or female.

Women in Engineering

Women in Engineering is a joint initiative between the UWA Careers Centre and the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics. It is open to female students currently enrolled in a Bachelor of Engineering (pre-2012 course) or the Master of Professional Engineering.

Mentors in the Women in Engineering program are female.


Mentors for both programs can apply online (click on the Dandelion). Students can also apply online to be mentees.

Proudly supported by Fluor Australia Ltd (Principal Partner) and Visagio (Major Partner).

Photos from the major events from the programs are available.
