In a bid towards fostering students’ interest in engineering careers and prepare them for the real world of word, the Nigerian Institution of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (NIEEE), Lagos State Chapter, has unveiled its agenda for young Electrical Electronics Engineers development just as it plans to establish its student’s chapters in polytechnics and universities in Lagos state and its environs.

This was made known by its fifth Chairman, Engr Mojeed Olaosegba at the 2017 Award and investiture ceremony in Lagos. He said the idea would help to inculcate in the students the necessary ethics, boost quality and lift them to a greater height in life.

He said the Chapter also plan to “institute an award in honour of the best graduating student in the Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering of the University of Lagos before the next convocation of the University.” and will replicate this as much as possible in other institutions in Lagos in near future. This, according to him “becomes necessary in order to celebrate academic success and quest for professionalism in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)”

The Chairman also noted that the Institution would “partner with government and relevant agencies within the public and private sectors as well as other sister engineering bodies in order to bring about the much needed improvement in the way engineering is being managed especially in the power sector.”

A lecture  titled, “Energy Efficiency Methods: An Opportunity to create value in our organizations”, was presented at the event by Dr. Robinson Ehiorobo, Managing Director Havilahtrend International Limited (HTIL).

In the lecture, Dr Robinson lamented that the nation is losing over N860 billion annually due to lack of energy efficient application philosophy.

To surmount the challenge, he called for a review of the method used in providing street -light in urban area, which seems to be wasteful, a review of the use of absorbent and Ehudent design in providing streetlight in the village. He also canvassed for the need to address the visible wastages due to poor quality of utility supply, eliminate the challenge of low power factor and the need for professionals to create value in their respective communities.

Some of teh dignitaries at the event are the National Chairman, NIEEE, Engr Emmanuel Akinwole (who chaired the event), Rt. Hon. (Barr) Michael Adesina Adeyemo, The Honorable Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly, Engr Kola Balogun among others.

The Nigerian Institution of Electrical Electronics Engineers, NIEEE is a Division of Nigerian Society of Engineers. The Lagos state Chapter is one of the foremost chapters in the country, with innovative programmes. You can reach them at : Email: @NIEEELagoschapter ; twitter: @nieeelagos : Phone: 0803 562 6181

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COREN AND NIGERIAN SOCIETY OF ENGNEERS The two are separate and different bodies so that they cannot be referred to interchangeably. The Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) is a voluntary association established by the practitioners of the profession while the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) is a statutory organ of Federal Government, established by decree and concerned with certificate of persons for the purpose of practicing the engineering profession in Nigeria. COREN being the regulatory body for the engineering family in Nigeria, it is therefore necessary to have relevant portions of relevant COREN publications reproduced to serve for both emphasis and as information to all.

Punch Editorial: LCC makes N15m a day on Lekki toll gate – Investigation BY KUNLE FALAYI AND TUNDE AJAJA

Liadi left his Lekki home in his SUV for Victoria Island. He is a regular motorist who shuttles between Lekki and other parts of the Lagos Island. But this day, he had already passed through the toll plaza at Admiralty Way before he remembered that he had forgotten a very important document which he left on his bed. He was so furious with himself because he didn’t have any other choice but to drive back home to be able to make any headway in his business that day. And when he thought about the rigours of passing through the toll plaza especially where he would have to queue for minutes to be able to pay his toll, he was full of regret that he still had to endure the experience. Liadi told Saturday PUNCH, “I was stuck in traffic as a result of the gridlock at the  toll-gate at Admiralty Way for a long time around 9 am that day. I had paid my usual N150 at the toll-gate and was on my way to VI when I remembered that I had forgotten a vital document at home.
