Nile University hosted Chinese delegates from the Beijing Jiaotong University, China. The visit was part of a larger preliminary study— of the current state of the Nigerian Transportation Sector and Higher Education System—toward the eventual establishment of a University of Transportation in Nigeria.

The delegates’ areas of focus, during the visit, included:

  • the state of the University’s transport department/faculty (if any)
  • the number of students
  • the standard of university laboratories (teaching laboratories, training rooms, Scientific Research Laboratories, Libraries) etc.

Other schools earmarked for the study were ABU Zaria, Rivers State University of Science and Technology, and the University of Ibadan, to name a few.
