We are in the process of forming the mentoring teams of industry members to help guide and interact with the students and faculty during the upcoming academic year. Serving as a mentor allows for a more in depth interaction with the project, making it easier to bring the technology into the company. It also provides an opportunity to get to know the graduate students working on the project, with the advantage of being able to make a well-informed decision on employment offers. The request for mentors has been sent to the IAB members, with a due date of July 17th. This will allow us sufficient time to schedule the first project mentoring meetings to be held the last half of August.
