You need to visibly use it in anger

Programming and electrical is particularly useful in heavy industry, placement or internship would be good.

I've mentored a few electrical and mechanical engineers programming in my time. Useful fellows if they can get their heads round programming. Write off to a few local employers, see if they'll give you a project, you might even get paid!

You've got the right idea though, get some real world work done. Open source, voluntary, something, get some lines on your cv/resume.

get involved in projects...

Schools are the best place to get involve in projects, also on the web but if you want to start earning money join any of the freelance sites but more important get something done to show/present/prove that you know the programming language you're using.
