"...In my first engineering job, I had great difficulty practicing my Theoretical knowledge in the industry. What I gained most from the EGDP program is a shift in my mindset. I managed to develop skills that have helped me grow my business and make profit. I also gained more insight in the Engineering world and that has motivated me to pursue my Masters in Energy Management. The EGDP program is a great eye opener for any fresh graduate and also to those already in the field of practice" Chris Mbori
