Engineering graduates are being encouraged to apply for the programme designed to equip them with hands-on professional experience under the tutelage of senior registered engineers.

The three-year Graduate Engineers Internship Programme (GEIP) is designed by the Kenya Roads Board (KRB) and is meant to equip trainee engineers with professional skills, by following guidelines specific to one’s field of engineering practice as well as on non-technical areas.

According to a news release from the Board, GEIP will enable trainee engineers to pursue their professional careers with precision and confidence, making them more competitive and able to effectively play their roles in national development.  

GEIP is also expected to enable the trainees to employ themselves in engineering, besides adding to the country’s pool of competent, experienced and professionally qualified engineers to contribute positively and effectively towards national development.

Under the arrangement, KRB facilitates the Graduate Engineers while they are attached to various projects and programmes being undertaken by the Road Agencies (RAs).

The RAs, on the other hand, will place the trainees under the mentorship of professional engineers managing various projects under them.

The first cohort of 15 graduate engineers was enrolled in April 2020 while the second cohort of 22 enrolled in January 2021. All have so far been placed to the different road agencies including the Kenya Wildlife Service.
