Winter Internship Reflections for 2023

Winter Internship Reflections for 2023

Every year EEI’s internship program gives university students and graduates the opportunity to gain experience with hands on projects to equip them for future success.

Our most recent batch of interns have completed their time with us at EEI and have provided us with some insights into our winter internship program.

 

 

“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to have been part of the team and to have gained valuable experience during my time with your organisation. During my internship, I had the chance to work on various projects and tasks that allowed me to apply the knowledge I gained during my studies. The constructive feedback and regular check-ins from Raj and Peter helped me grow both personally and professionally. I feel more confident in my abilities and have a clearer vision of my career path going forward.

Moreover, the internship program's structure and the opportunities for networking and professional development were well organized and beneficial. The presentation sessions and interactions with employees from different departments broadened my horizons and enriched my overall experience.

It has been an unforgettable journey, and I genuinely believe this internship has set a solid foundation for my future career. I would be delighted to stay in touch with the team and potentially collaborate again in the future.”

"I thought it was a very educational experience particularly in how to work in a professional environment, which I hadn't done before. I learnt skills in report writing and had experience in working with other industry experts such as chemical engineers and environmental scientists, not just chemists (like me) which was very broadening to me and made me realise there are interconnections within different disciplines. I found the presentation useful in increasing my skills in presenting to others and have identified my weaknesses that I need to work on in future."

“I would like to start off by saying thank you for this opportunity to be able to complete and participate in this internship program. I enjoyed learning how an engineering firm operates, and I am grateful to be able to contribute my engineering skills and experience through this program. I am sure I will take this experience and be more confident in my work in any future engineering work I partake in.

I enjoyed having frequent feedback to ensure I was working in the right direction. I enjoyed participating in the presentation, it allowed me to improve my presentation skills and it gave me the opportunity to learn a new topic.”
