STEM Opportunities at MC

MentorNet

MentorNet is an online program that automatically matches STEM students with a professional mentor for a 9-month online pen-pal relationship. This match is based upon surveys that both the mentor and protégé fill out when they sign up. The best part? It is free for Mission College students!

Alliance of Mathematics Engineering and Science Students

What is it?

The Alliance of Mathematics Engineering and Science Students is a student-run organization devoted to bringing students together for the mutual benefit of their community, of their futures, their friendships and to inspire innovation.

How can Students benefit from AMES2?

Students can benefit from exposure to a wide variety of activities, ranging from leadership to robotics, and engineering competitions. In addition, workshops take place monthly each designed with a specific intent to refine members, targeting their soft and hard skills to prepare them for future jobs, interviews, and whatever endeavors they may encounter in life. The club also plans tours which are scheduled throughout the year.

AMES2 is open to anyone who wants to join. We do require that students attend a minimum of two meetings a month and that they participate in one activity a month
