ACS Fellows and Mentoring

Find a mentor. The Canberra Branch coordinates a mentoring scheme whereby tertiary computing students can informally network with experienced professionals in areas which are of particular interest to them. Mentors are available to provide information to current and future ACS members and others with a more general interest in ICT.

For more information on the mentor scheme and about finding a personal mentor, contact us at or call (02) 6143 5503.

Mentoring Program

ACS supports mentoring relationships through the provision of this program as a means to support entry, retention and progression of future ICT leaders and professional specialists.

The mentoring program is a structured program that allows ACS mentors to provide real world knowledge and experience to mentees, for instance, MACS CPs working with mentees who want to achieve the same status. Contact us at for more information.
