About The Internship

The AEC Energy Pioneers Program bridges the gap between academia and the workplace, while providing opportunities for Africans to gain practical skills.

The Internship Program will facilitate the development of young energy leaders of today by sharing knowledge and skills that can build, grow and change the way we see energy in the 21st century.

The African Energy Chamber acts as the pilot, navigating and kickstarting the interns’ profession into broader, clearer and tested horizons. We want to further gender equality objectives by encouraging female participation in the Program.
