Welcome to 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. The 2015/2016 academic year is packed with many FIRSTS events and I am happy our team of hardworking, visionary leaders have already delivered successfully on them. This coming academic year, our main events as an association are the annual ESA dinner planned for 23rd October 2015 and school of engineering open day planned for 27th February 2016. We would like to invite our members, partners, sponsors and supporters to work with us in achieving our planned activities for the year. We are thankful to those who have supported ESA over the years. Heartfelt gratitude to University of Nairobi, IEK, AAK, EBK, ICTA, CAK and individual supporters, specifically Eng. Riungu of Tsavo Power for his personal support of the association. We are hopeful that our partnership will continue to better the association. Help us bridge the gap between academia and the industry in the engineering profession. Thank you.
