Mentorship
 

The BRE Mentorship Scheme was launched in 1999, well ahead of any other similar schemes in The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.  It is available to all full time degree students reading the Building Engineering and Management, Property Management, and Surveying programmes.  Participating students are assigned a personal mentor when they commence their studies as freshmen.  These mentors are senior professionals in their respective fields and specializations and thus will be providing the most relevant mentoring to the students’ career development.  

Once the students have developed amicable relationship with their mentors, they can expect parental guidance and nurturing throughout their entire curriculum.  They can also expect enlightenment and steering into their career path.  Many graduates have testified that this is truly a 『一日為師、終生為父』relationship and they are keeping very close liaison with their mentors even after their graduation and professional qualification.

By June 2012, we have over 160 active mentors who are professional Building Surveyors, General Practice Surveyors, Maintenance Surveyors, Quantity Surveyors, Building Contractors, Construction Engineers, Facility Managers, Project Managers, Property Managers, etc.  They are taking care of over 320 BRE degree students who are participating in the scheme.  Mentors are very enthusiastic and they dedicate unselfishly in bringing up their mentees.  Mentors will normally be assigned new freshmen every year while their former mentees are progressing to the second and third years.  So when a mentor calls up all his mentees for a gathering, it is also a socialization of the students, including graduates, of different years in the same programme.  This is certainly an added value to the students in their career networking.
