Malik is a second year ECAM Engineering student from Cameroon. He took some time to talk with us about his experience during his internship at the end of his first year in ECAM Lyon’s ECAM Engineering program.
Engineers need to make sure that technology serves people.
“At first it was hard because I couldn’t find an internship, but thanks to ECAM Lyon’s connections with industry, I was able to find an internship with the French Post Office. ECAM Lyon was able to get me the internship announcement before many others and coached me through the process.
During the internship, I was able to develop my social and teamwork skills as I was working at the same place with many people, and we needed to be as efficient as possible. If somebody made a mistake, it would cause problems for everyone down the line.
This was my first industrial experience and it made me aware of the industrial world as well as helped refine my priorities as a future engineer. Engineers need to make sure that technology serves people and not the other way around. I got to know a lot of people at the French Post Office and made connections that will last me a long time.”
