Announcing The New Women in Titanium Scholarship Fund
WiT is pleased to announce a new scholarship opportunity available to undergraduate females who attend an accredited college majoring in metallurgy. The scholarship of $5,000 will be provided annually for 4 years to the selected recipient. Metallurgical engineering is great for girls yet there are relatively fewer girls who study metallurgical engineering than other disciplines. Although there is a lot of math, metallurgical engineering requires a good understanding of chemistry.

Most of the time, metallurgical engineers find jobs in manufacturing (like the titanium industry) or metallurgical labs (testing and forensics). In a manufacturing setting, there is plenty of engineering and lots of interaction with operators and workers. Not only does this allow a professional to exercise engineering knowledge but it also offers the opportunity to develop interpersonal skills and leadership techniques, both of which we think girls are inherently good at. Women in Titanium is pleased to support girls seeking a career in metallurgical engineering and we think it is a great choice for girls! Online application and more details coming soon to the ITA website.
 
 
Make 2017 the Year you join the International TeleMentor Program
International Titanium Association and Women in Titanium are pleased to support of the International Tele-Mentor Program (ITP). The International Tele-Mentor Program starts with schools comprised of students as young as 12 years old. Through their mentors, they are taught how to map out a STEM- related education and career path, guided by professional networks that help to implement and fine tune these plans over time.

Tele-mentoring is a process that combines the proven practice of mentoring with the speed and ease of electronic communication, enabling busy professionals to make significant contributions to the academic lives of students. Through mentoring by industry professionals, a corporation helps students develop the skills and foundation to pursue their interests successfully and operate at their potential. Although research shows that face-to-face mentoring programs can have a variety of positive impacts, many top professionals believe they simply don’t have the time to make that kind of commitment. By investing about 30 minutes per week, mentors can help students achieve academic excellence and explore their education and career futures.

Guided by their mentors, students document the quality of various project outcomes against a rubric or standard. They discuss gaps, if any, between their work and that standard and how they plan to fill the gap. Students also share with mentors how they can leverage the mentor’s help throughout the project and provide insights on how they could have improved as collaborators—a means to continually fine-tune and upgrade the mentoring process.

For the titanium industry, the ITP program complements an ongoing thrust to cultivate students as future engineers, designers, executives, and metallurgists worldwide. ITA’s WiT committee is pleased to engage in the promotion of mentoring programs available and in attracting students as future leaders of the industry.
