The Nigeria Institute of Mechanical Engineers (NIMechE), an offshoot of Nigeria Society of Engineers (NSE) has urged Nigeria engineering students to be more innovative in driving energy efficiency in the country. The National chairman of the institute Engineer Robinson Ejilah stated this at the NIMechE innovation challenge 2.0 prize giving day and exhibition held at the Lagos Branch held in the University of Lagos, Akoka, Lagos state.

#He said, “the type of engineering that we went through has changed dramatically, in our own days it was about the degree, WAEC, GCE, etc., but today you must apply your skills and intuition. “Engineering teaches you to build your imagination, translate it to something that will be beneficial to man.”  Speaking on the journey and objective of NIMechE innovation challenge, the Project Manager, NIC 2.0, Engr. Osazoduwa Agboneni said the initiative is set to eradicate the current gap between classroom, engineering education and practices.

Agboneni said, “The initiative is aimed at helping engineering students promote the profession, share best practice and increase the local engineering capacity to help drive development. ‘’This is to be supported by high quality research focusing on establishing the evidence base of the importance of what engineering institution and the role they play in delivering sustainable growth and mapping engineering capacity and diversity in the country”.

Corroborating him, the Chairman, NIMechE, Lagos Chapter, Engr. Segun Fadeyi said the initiative was an emergency development programme dedicated to deepening and building the capacity of mechanical engineering students in providing home grown innovative solutions and to develop an effective system of knowledge sharing, collaborate and internship amongst mechanical engineers in Nigeria and Ghana.
