Experience before YEP

I worked as a Graduate Engineer Trainee with EMD Consulting Engineers. The organisation was involved in designing and supervising the construction of gravity fed water schemes in Mangochi and Ntcheu districts in Malawi. As part of my role, I assisted with the hydraulic modelling of the scheme, producing construction drawings and supervising the contractors. After two years of work, I moved to Northern Region Water Board where I was involved in the production, treatment, transmission and distribution of water processes. This also included the maintenance of reticulation system.
