The IDEA Center offers several mentorship programs, with involvement from undergraduates, transfer students, and graduate students. Through these programs, students are able to engage with the UC San Diego campus community, expand their peer and professional network, and learn more about university life at the undergraduate and graduate levels.


Jacobs Undergraduate Mentoring Program is a community of engineering students (both undergraduate and graduate) and alumni, who provide support, advice, guidance, and experience to all members.


Transfer Engineering Academic Mentorship Program pairs incoming transfer engineering students in the Jacobs School of Engineering with upperclassmen transfer students.
