Mentors in Tech is a program that helps overlooked tech students at smaller, less well known, accessible and affordable colleges navigate and launch their careers through:
- Structured yearlong mentorship with industry mentors.
- Integrated hands-on paid industry capstone projects.
- Tailored talent service connects employers to students.
The MinT industry capstone project is low cost, low overhead, high impact alternative / complementary program to traditional summer internship programs for employers who want to work with overlooked nontraditional tech students from small colleges on a project managed by MinT staff and college faculty.
Through the projects, companies will be able to discover the unique strengths and abilities of our students who otherwise would not have the opportunity to work with industry engineers.
We have capstone opportunities for industry partners in the Fall, Winter, and Spring academic quarters
