Become an ACerS Mentor or Mentee
The ACerS mentoring program is designed to nurture the next generation of talent in ceramic materials and technologies. The program matches experienced engineers, scientists, educators and business professionals with young professionals and graduate students in the ceramic materials field. ACerS will match participants based on area of focus (e.g., electronics, energy, glass, etc.), career path (e.g. academia, business, research, etc.) or geographic proximity. When a match is made, the Society will notify the mentor and mentee, providing contact information and additional resource materials.
The role of the mentor may include providing career advice and guidance, introducing the mentee to other professional colleagues and hosting a mentee at a conference or in a visit to a laboratory or plant. Mentees may request career guidance, ask for professional advice, or exchange ideas with their mentor about current research, trends and developments in the field of ceramic materials and technologies. To learn more about becoming a mentor or a mentee or to obtain application forms for either, visit the ACerS mentoring web page.
