My three months internship at IPM Professional Services was really rewarding and fruitful. During the internship, I was given opportunities to expose to various engineering tasks that I gained real-world experience in the occupation of being a civil engineer. I was able to develop different practical skills that I wouldn’t learn in university. I am glad that I not only had a chance to learn the infrastructure design on sewerage, water reticulation, and earthwork but also able to learn the MiTS software which plays an essential role in nowadays infrastructure design. I was able to attend site meetings and liaise with different local authorities as well. Furthermore, my company supervisor and colleagues were very kind and helpful. They were always available for explanations and showed patience if I had any enquiries on the tasks assigned. My company supervisor also often shared his valuable experiences with me which helped me to gain a better understanding of my future career. In addition, the working environment was pleasant and conducive. Everyone in the office showed their professionals while performing works. As a whole, the internship was a great and interesting learning experience that provides me a secure foundation and precious experience for my professional future. It positively impacted my life on both working experiences and the acquisition of technical skills. I am fully satisfied with my internship experience at IPM Professional Services.

During my 8 months internship at IPM Professional services, I was given a lot of opportunities to be involved in project design as well as planning. With the proper advice and guidance of my colleagues, I managed to complete several civil engineering designs such as temporary building, industrial building, platform for factory, bungalow, billboard structure, earthworks design, road and drainage design. As an engineering student, we only focused on calculation. But from my internship, I realized that there are many factors to deal with before all the calculations come into place. An engineer should not only concern about the calculation, but shall take consideration of other factors that may affect the feasibility of the project. In conclusion, my internship at IPM Professional Services provided me with valuable hands-on experience and better ideas about engineering knowledge and skills. I appreciate very much and thanks to my supervisor, Ir. Dr. Justin Lai and my colleagues who always support and guide me.
