This Student Link column is designed to raise awareness about actions being taken by YEPP and SPE chapters around the world to extend the reach of SPE benefits to students. It will highlight new and ongoing programs that promote and ease the transition from being an active member of an SPE student chapter to being an active member of an industry SPE chapter. Just as YEPPs need mentoring from more experienced members in our industry, students need mentoring from young professionals. SPE is an excellent way to foster the functional links between students, young professionals, and industry leaders.
One of the main objectives of Student Link is to increase the number and quality of young professional initiatives toward students and vice versa. To achieve this objective, this column will showcase exemplary programs from around the globe. Highlighting these programs from both an industry and university perspective can help transfer ideas for effective interaction and mutual benefit.
