Mentoring - Public web - Czech technical university in Prague

You are here

The CTU Career Centre  has for more than five years been offering a unique opportunity to participate in a programme that allows students to discover the real working environment in Czech and international companies.


In the mentoring programme, a student (referred to as the mentee) goes to his/her mentor’s company. The mentee accompanies the mentor in his/her day-to-day work, observes and notes the mentor’s decision-making and management skills and methods, gets an insight into the company’s working environment, takes part in meetings and consultations, and even participates actively in real projects.

The entire collaboration is based simply and solely on what is agreed between the student and the mentor: whether there will be regular meetings over a period of several months, or whether the student will spend several days or a week intensively with the company. It all depends on what the mentee negotiates with the mentor: the type of collaboration, the hours to be spent together, and what kinds of things will be done. There are no requirements and no limitations.

Although the student is not paid, he/she will gain invaluable experience, contacts, and, last but not least, a very interesting entry in his/her CV. In return, the mentor gains a completely new insight into his/her own work, and the company can present itself to a talented student student who will surely discuss his/her experiences with other talented students.

No other university in the Czech Republic offers a mentoring programme of this type!
