Engineering Students Association

This is an association of students from five departments in the school of engineering, University of Nairobi. The association is over 40 years old and has been instrumental in bridging the gap between academia and the engineering industry. The association endeavors to keep students informed about opportunities and trends in the engineering industry. In addition to the comprehensive and accredited training that our members undergo in the school in order to be competent engineers, our members benefit from partnerships with companies in a way that ensures we get additional qualifications and skills. This makes our members the most resourceful and informed of all engineering students in the country, a fact that gives them an edge. Our members also benefit from industrial attachments, internships and employment opportunities granted by our different partners. We organize events that are aimed at informing our members about the needs and trends in the industry besides giving our partner companies the first market for their products and services.
