Mentors 2020


To make contact with a specific Mentor, please email your requirement with explanation to Nihal Sinnadurai


IEEE Fellows and Senior Members with considerable experience in industry are now available to provide advice to those seeking guidance.


Mentors will make time for one-to-one conversations despite busy schedules, and will provide guidance by email or phone.


Mentors are not there to do your work. From their experience, they can guide you. Mentees must be receptive to critical (but friendly) comments.


To ensure both the mentor and mentee gain satisfaction from the association, it is important to understand the limitations and boundaries. However, if you, the mentee, genuinely have no idea how to go about something, make this clear to your mentor, otherwise the discussion will falter. Treat what your mentor says to you with the same confidentiality that you would wish your mentor to treat your own confidences Never say “But my mentor said” unless you are sure your mentor would not mind being.quoted.
