The Nigerian Universities Engineering Students’ Association (NUESA) Nile Chapter organized an event for the institution’s engineering students to educate them on the importance of Engineering. The staff present at the program included Dr. Onyebuchi Mogbo, Dr. Ayuba Salihu, Mr. Oluwaseun Oyeleke, a representative of Dr. Petrus Nzerem (HOD Petroleum & Gas Engineering Department) and Dr. Abdullahi S. Gimba, the event’s guest speaker.
In his address, Dr. Abdullahi S. Gimba, the guest speaker, started by asking students about their understanding of Engineering; he then proceeded to disclose several definitions of the discipline as given by some national and international bodies. He talked about the various Engineering disciplines and their fields of applications, as well as the importance of Engineering. Some other areas he covered in his address were engineering ethics, choosing a specific engineering field, engineering technologies, and plagiarism.
Dr. Gimba concluded his speech by encouraging students to practicalize the lessons learned in the event; in so doing, he said, they will contribute to the development of the nation through innovation.
The event came to an end with a vote of thanks by the Chapter’s president, who urged the students present to attend more of similar events in the future.
