    I worked at Kenya Power full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The internship programme provides students with vital hands on experience gained through extensive field exposure. Electrical engineering students could benefit a lot with the programme

    Cons

    There's Limited interaction with senior engineers where one could get good mentorship and network easily.

    Also, I was only stationed in one department (O&M) all through the attachment period instead of being rotated to other departments. (For KPLC - Nakuru)

    Advice to Management

    The attachment programme should be made more effective by introducing rotations within the different departments unlike being stationed in only one department for significant period of the internship.
