CU Bags Two Awards in Seoul, South Korea
Covenant University has again made Africa proud in the recently concluded ‘Korean Association of Women Inventors Exhibition (KWIA)’ in Soul, South Korea.
Two products were presented by the institution’s Renewable Energy Sub-cluster, from the Electrical & Information Engineering Department of the College of Engineering at the event. They include Eco Friendly Energy Retention Bag (ERB), which bagged a Gold Award and a Solar Powered Weather Station, which bagged a Bronze Award.
While presenting the awards to the institution’s Management on Monday, May 25, 2015, the leader of the team from the Renewable Energy Sub-cluster, Professor Samuel Wara stated, “We took two products to South Korea, one of which is an Eco Friendly Energy Retention Bag (ERB). The purpose is temperature conditioning. It maintains the temperature of whatever is put in it, hot or cold, (a single unit independently performs these functions) with varying degrees of efficiencies.
“There are other exhibitions coming up. It is important that we plan to be part of other exhibitions as they bring exposures which help in capacity building. The more we keep going out, the better our products become,” he noted.
In his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Charles Ayo, appreciated the efforts of the Sub-cluster and the entire Electrical & Information Engineering Department. He lauded them for their hard work and encouraged them not to rest on their oars as there are higher heights to be attained.
The Vice-Chancellor further said, “There is no way this award would not add to the profile of the University. I can assure you that Management would encourage faculty to go for other exhibitions to drive exposure.”
Also present at the event were the Registrar, Dr. Olumuyiwa Oludayo and other members of the Renewable Energy Sub-cluster, Electrical & Information Engineering Department, Dr. Anthony Adoghe, Dr. Hope Orovwode and Mrs. Christy Ehikudor. Others were the members of the Directorate of Media and Corporate Affairs unit.
