"My internship at IEN was more than I could ever hope for. I could clearly see great thought had been given to what I would be involved in, as all my time truly felt it was tailored to my interests, aspects I had recently studied but also a welcome introduction of many new and diverse areas. I was exposed to numerous opportunities to learn, develop and apply skills, letting me flourish and immerse myself in this field. As an intern at IEN, I felt incredibly involved. I managed to work on a various range of projects like KLIA2 Airport, setting up new Laser Eggs, analysing TNB energy usage within the company, writing an article for Green Plus Magazine as well as accessing exciting software. The diversity of these projects resulted in a well-rounded exercise of different skills from data handling to research and presenting. The value of these skills learnt and practiced is immeasurable and I am certain they will go a long way for me and my future.
The office itself is filled with amazing role models and mentors who have taught me so much. I walked in and was made to feel part of the team straightaway. A memorable highlight was an invite to an Open House at the ST Diamond building, one of IENs prestigious projects. There, I was able to witness business and local Malaysian culture merge in a truly memorable event. Through IEN, I was also given opportunities to get involved with like-minded people in the community at an MESYM event. Mondays were actually looked forward to with evening sports to enjoy and Friday's were a great end to the week with a lunch outing, fantastic knowledge sharing and afternoon games. The office had fun and friendly environment where I was able to quickly settle and now will surely miss.
There is so much I am taking away from this experience. Not only an insight into the diverse, and important projects being handled but witnessing the work ethics, the working environment and everyone's commitment to a team player work culture. My time at IEN was truly inspiring and was an opportunity like no other thanks to the incredibly supportive staff creating a valuable and enriching experience."
