Anicet Herve Engoue Kongoue is an EIT graduate, who completed our 52684WA - Advanced Diploma in Electrical and Instrumentation (E&I) Engineering for Oil and Gas Facilities in 2018. He said this program helped him advance his career, so he has now enrolled in our 52764WA - Graduate Certificate in Renewable Energy Technologies. He is a professional in the electrical engineering industry and currently works at Fayat Energie Services International. They specialize in electrical engineering projects and are focused on powering the smart cities of the future.
Anicet was always fond of engineering. From a young age, he was dreaming big. “My dream was to be a leader in the engineering industry,” he said.
His engineering journey began when he acquired a high school diploma in Electrotechnical Engineering from the Martin Luther King College in Bafoussam in Cameroon. In July 2007, he became a trainee technician at the FERMENCAM factory, which produces whiskey for the Cameroonian market. In the same year, he enrolled in a Diploma of Technology in Electrical Engineering and Industrial Computers.
A year later, he was working as an Electromechanical Technician and became a team leader in the maintenance department at SOFAVINC, a company that creates a range of wine, liqueurs, and natural drinks in Cameroon.
From May 2013 to April 2014, Anicet moved on and worked as an electrical and instrumentation team leader in Areva, in Niger, for Satelec Fayat Group. In May 2014, he became an electrical and instrumentation supervisor at the same company, but he headed back to Cameroon, where he worked for one year.
In April 2015, he joined Fayat Energie Services International team in Mozambique as a quality engineer on the project of rehabilitation of Maputo international airport, where he stayed up to September 2017.
In September 2017, he worked as a quality engineer at Fayat Energie Services International for the Fayat Group on the Ivory Coast. He then went back to Cameroon in April 2018, to work for the same company as a quality engineer.
The hunger for knowledge never left Anicet as he was working in all of his roles. He wanted to master the technologies that he would see out in the field. So he decided to enroll in an advanced diploma with EIT.
“The course helped me to improve my work. I am more proficient in elements of safety and have an all-round better quality of work. While practically applying what I have learned from EIT, my employer always responds with satisfaction.”
He currently works as an AGL Manager at his old workplace Fayat Energie Services International, but this time he is located in Kenya. His daily responsibilities include:
- Execution and Supervision of Due Diligence Audits
- Audit Information Documentation and Processing
- Installation/Commissioning and Supervision
- Project Energy Resources
- Troubleshooting and issue rectifying
- Technical Reporting
- Implementing work procedure and quality documents
- Managing and supervising installation teams
- Ensure the respect of compliance and safety instruction
- Participate in project costing and design studies
Anicet has now set his sights on the future trends of engineering. He has recently enrolled in a graduate certificate with EIT to help him keep abreast of the developments and trends in the electrical engineering industry.
Anicet’s career has been an eventful journey, and it does not seem to be slowing down now. However, he is continuing to up-skill in his industry, so that he can be proficient in the newest technologies and have the most relevant skills. And he has not stopped dreaming.
“I think in the upcoming years, my career will be maturing, and I will be taking on more responsibility and will be in a more senior position,” Anicet concluded.
