INDUSTRY



As Engineering Students Association, an essential part of our mission is the translation of technology to benefit society. Our faculty address complex, real-world challenges and develop applications for critical areas of societal need such as Structural analysis, computation, Electrical and Telecommunication System Design and Installations, energy and environmental systems. We endeavour to have many significant collaborations with industrial partners that are long-term multi-researcher interactions, which emphasize a real exchange of information and learning on both sides of the engagement.

Avenues to engage with industry

ESA offers numerous avenues for engagement, including research collaborations, industry sponsored internships, outreaches and seminars, technical discussions with faculty and student recruitment opportunities.

How we engage

ESA is keen on developing many significant collaborations with industrial partners that are long-term multi-research interactions, which emphasize a real exchange of information and learning on both sides of the engagement. It is our hope that we shall be able to establish a multi-disciplinary interaction in the field of Engineering to facilitate a wholesome industry development of the engineering profession in Kenya.

Benefits to ESA and to our partners

Students benefit from early exposure to industry, and our partners raise their visibility and recruiting opportunities for all levels of University of Nairobi Students. We do hope that our interactions with industry shall ensure the most relevant and emerging research problems are aligned with the research focus of our faculty and such real world problems link to the educational topics in the undergraduate curriculum as well.

HOW CAN I ENGAGE WITH ESA STUDENTS?

May to September Internships

Connect with some of The University of Nairobi's best students during the May- June Internship period. These internships pairs ESA students with companies aligned with our educational fields for job shadowing and unpaid intern opportunities over a period of three to four months. These internships also provide an excellent opportunity to connect companies and students through mutually enriching experiences in the field.

We are seeking companies who would like to host student internships in variety of professional engineering fields, including: Civil and Structural Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Environmental and Bio systems Engineering and Geo-spatial Engineering.

The goals of the internship should be to:

  • Provide hands-on experience to students in their field.
  • Increase awareness of their company or research; and
  • Build mutually satisfying and long-lasting mentoring relationships

For more information on opportunities, please contact the chairman at esauon@students.uonbi.ac.ke

Recruit on Campus

Through the Dean's office, School of Engineering, we are in the process of establishing A Recruit on campus event geared towards helping both The Companies and Students. During this period we hope to host employers looking to interview entry-level candidates for jobs and internships. We shall inform students of visit dates, deadlines, and information meetings through our web site and our on-line recruiting system.
