The OAI Study Center is the home of the Peer Mentoring Program. It is located in 201 REC The Study Center is used for group study sessions, quiet studying, as well as a meeting place for many of the OAI clubs. The Study Center is conveniently located adjacent to the OAI office.
Each quarter OAI provides FREE one-on-one mentoring and academic support for engineering pre-requisite courses (math, physics, chemistry, programming), lower division engineering courses as well as many upper division courses. The mentors are current UCI undergraduate and graduate students who have taken the courses and done well. In addition to their academic success, they are also patient, friendly and committed to their tutees.
All UCI Engineering and ICS students are invited to use the program. In a typical quarter, we offer approximately 50 tutor hours/week to insure maximum flexibility. Students are always encouraged to meet with the faculty and/or teaching assistants for their questions. If however, their office hours conflict or there are still questions, come in meet with one of our mentors but understand that we are not equipped to "teach" the entire course. You are free to drop in as frequently as you like so use them often.
Mentoring Hours will start on Monday of Week 2 and go until Friday of Week 10. The current list of mentors, the topics they can assist you with, and their schedules can be found below or by clicking on the link at the bottom:
Spring 2016 OAI Mentoring/Tutoring Schedule
Shweta - Biomedical Engineering
Shweta is a first-year Master's student in Biomedical Engineering. She earned a BS degree in BME from UCI. She will be able to help you with introductory engineering classes and some lower/upper division BME classes. She can also help in the process of graduate applications and be a guide and mentor for anything else that will help you succeed in your future as a successful engineer.
Jeffrey - Chemical & Material Science Engineering
Jeffrey is a first-year Master’s student in Chemical Engineering and received his BS in Chemical Engineering at Columbia University. He is able to help you navigate chemistry, math, physics and many lower/upper division CBEMS courses. He can also help you with your graduate application process and any academic questions you may have this year.
Rachelle - Civil Engineering & Environmental Engineering
Rachelle earned her BS in Civil Engineering at UCI and is currently a first-year Masters student in the Civil Engineering. She is able to help you navigate math, physics and many lower/upper division CEE courses. She is looking forward to mentoring fellow Anteaters and can also help you with your graduate application process and any academic questions you may have this year.
Charles - Electrical Engineering & Computer Science
Charles earned his BS in Electrical Engineering at UCI and is currently a first-year Masters student in the field of Computer Engineering. He enjoys mathematics and physics and is excited to mentor fellow Anteaters with various lower and upper EECS courses, graduate applications, or any other academic concerns.
Lauren - Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering
Lauren is a first-year Master’s student in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. She received her BS in Engineering Physics from Eastern Michigan University. She is capable of helping you navigate math, physics, and many lower/upper division MAE courses. Lauren can also help you with your graduate application process and any academic questions you may have this year.
