Alumni Relations Cell, BITS Pilani KK Birla Goa Campus launched the Alumni Mentorship Program (AMP) in 2017 in the spirit of BITSians helping BITSians, inviting our alumni from different walks of life to interact with current students. With an ocean of possibilities, these students often find it difficult to decide their way into the future. AMP aims to help them build their network and gain new perspectives on life after graduation.

Alumni Affairs successfully completed Phase Zero, a 6-week edition from June to August 2017, and is going ahead with Phase One from November 2017.

Phase One

This current phase of AMP has been divided into 3 sections:

  • Career and examination guidance,
  • Project oriented guidance and
  • Project specific guidance.

Career and Examination guidance: This form of mentorship offers guidance to students who are unclear about how to enter a particular field, or clear a particular examination. It also promises to offer the students a much coveted insight into the functioning of various industries.

Project specific guidance: This form of mentorship is for students who are already working in a particular field and wish to seek advice from people who are already present in the field.

Project oriented guidance: This form of mentorship is for students who are very interested in a particular field and seek a project in it.
