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:

Nikki - Biomedical Engineering:
Nikki earned her BS in Biomedical Engineering at UCI and is currently a first-year Master's student in Biomedical Engineering. She will be able to help you with most of the upper/lower division BME classes, as well as most of the introductory engineering classes. She is excited to mentor fellow Anteaters, and can help with the graduate application process and any academic concerns.
Cuong - Chemical & Material Science Engineering:
Cuong earned his BS in Chemical Engineering at UC Irvine and is currently a first-year Master’s student studying Materials Science and Engineering. He is able to help you navigate chemistry, math, physics and many lower/upper division CBEMS courses. He can also guide you through the graduate application process, internship search, 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 second-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 or professional questions you may have this year.
Summer - Electrical Engineering:
Summer earned her BS in Electrical Engineering at UCI and is currently a second-year Master student in Electrical Engineering. She will be able to help you with calculus, physics and many of the EECS upper/lower division classes. She can answer questions about internships and how to the them. She also has experience with disability services, where to find them, and can answer questions about navigating college with a learning disability.
Saedeh Mir – Mechanical Engineering:
Saedeh earned her BS in Mechanical Engineering at UCI and is currently a second-year Master student in the same discipline. She is able to help you navigate math, physics and lower/upper division ME courses, especially SolidWorks and Dynamics. She can also help you with the graduate application process and your academic questions.
Hudson – Computer Game Science:
Hudson is a senior Computer Game Science major at UCI . He is able to help you navigate ICS courses and share his intern and research experience.
