Biotechnology Professional Mentoring System

Biotechnology Professional Mentoring System

Starting in fall 2009, the graduate biotechnology program at University of Maryland University College (UMUC)—recognized as a Professional Science Master's (PSM) —launched an exciting new web-based mentoring program where biotechnology professionals and UMUC biotechnology alumni help students reach their professional goals. This program has been developed as part of a four-year U.S. Department of Education, FIPSE Grant to UMUC that started in fall 2008. The objectives of the program are to:

* Increase awareness of workforce needs among students
* Facilitate in the identification of a student’s professional goals
* Help a student in achieving their professional goals
* Promote interaction between academia and industry/government
* Provide opportunities for students to find the “best fit” jobs upon graduation
