AE Mentor Alumni Programme (MAP)

Start mapping your future!

Would you like to receive advice on what to do after your studies? Or be coached on how you can achieve your dream career? Or simply some guidance on what courses to take? Get help from Aerospace Engineering alumni and register for the AE Mentor Alumni Programme.

MAP aims to connect aerospace students to alumni who can support them with professional guidance and career advice. MAP offers more than a mentor-mentee relationship, it also provides a community with numerous possibilities for networking and career development. 

Programme facts

  • For all TU Delft AE students from 2nd year BSc to final year MSc
  • 5-month long programme from March - July and October - February
  • Student-alumni matches are based on shared interests and motivation
  • Contact with your alumnus mentor can take place in person, or via phone/video calls, and is initiated by you.

  • If there are more students than mentors, the matches will be made on a “first come first served” principle

MAP Objectives

In addition to filling out the registration form, you are required to provide an outline of your objectives for the programme. These objectives (max 1 A4) must contain your goals, what you expect from the programme and how you think you can get the most out of it. This document will serve as a starting point for discussions with your mentor. Besides the registration form, we also need your MAP objectives in order to match you to a mentor.
