Academic Advisors & Mentorship

Academic Advisors & Mentorship at the Genetics and Bioengineering Department

The aim of mentoring is to foster intellectual independence and a sense of curiosity in our students within a unique studying experience. The institution therefore takes pride in the one-on-one mentoring system it has developed.

For undergraduates, we look at academic performance and other cultural indicators of their capacity for success, such as essays, obstacles overcome, and extracurricular activities and work. For graduate students, we include research experience, test scores, letters, essays, working experience, scientific publication record, and a range of other variables to assess students’ potential to succeed.

You will soon find that our professors and assistants are truly always available to their students within and outside office hours. (However, to make sure you make the most of their time, we ask you to make an appointment if you seek to meet them outside of office hours.) Our ultimate aim is to enable our students to study not only before the exams, but throughout the entire semester, via coursework, lab work, projects, and seminars. In order to achieve excellence, professors and students work together in an intellectually stimulating atmosphere and, in doing so, students are prepared for their future endeavors, be they academic or professional. Finally, students are given a chance to choose mentors for their GBE projects during the third year of undergraduate studies and pursue their careers in a specific direction in the future.

Apart from mentors, students have academic advisors available to them at any time. Academic advisors are there to help and guide students in different aspects of their lives and studies. This may include the registration process, finding internship opportunities, finding the most suitable field for their further development, but it may also include any other needs the student may have. During the upcoming academic year, three senior teaching assistants are appointed as academic advisors:
