The Civil Engineering department organized an excursion to Dantata and Sawoe Construction Company Nig. Ltd. for its 300 and 400 level students. The visit, aimed at giving students an opportunity to witness theoretical concepts being put into practice, offered them a firsthand view of the planning, design, and execution of construction activities in an actual construction site.
During the excursion, students were taken to the different sections of the facility— heavy-duty machinery section etc.— where they were taught important industry safety precautions (use of helmets, safety boots), as well as the functions of several of the company’s equipment.
Overall, the experience was educative and exciting as students had a chance to gain useful knowledge from experts in one of the leading indigenous construction companies in Nigeria.
