NSE Ota Chapter Seeks Robust Engagement with Covenant University Students

The Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE), Ota Chapter, has sought Covenant University Management's assistance in ensuring that engineering students in the University get enrolled as members during their studentship in the University.

The Chapter Chairman, Engineer A.G. Adeyemi, made the request when he led a delegation from the chapter on a courtesy visit to the University on Tuesday, December 14, 2021. According to him, the student's membership status would help fast-track their induction as graduate members by the branch.

Engr. Adeyemi said the society is ready to partner with Covenant University with a view to make the NSE chapter a giant chapter amongst other chapters in the country, and at the same time assist the student body to develop the Nigerian Engineering Students Association (NESA) Covenant University chapter, thereby creating a professional platform to relate and interact within and outside of the University's context.

He said the society is ready to engage in cross-fertilization of ideas process through a town and gown initiative that would see professionals across various fields of engineering coming to participate in workshops, seminars, symposia, and roundtable discourse in Covenant, in order to help students understand what is expected of them in the industry and world of work, in general.

In his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Abiodun H. Adebayo, appreciated the leadership of the NSE, Ota Chapter, for the courtesy visit, while noting the premium Covenant University places on her engineering programmes, thus the active involvement of her faculty and staff in NSE activities in the local, state and national levels.

Professor Adebayo noted the huge investment and support the Board of Regents of the University has invested in her engineering programmes. "The support will continue as the University commits herself towards expanding the frontiers of engineering practices in the country," he added.

Professor Adebayo said the engineering programmes of Covenant University have gone beyond the realm of publication and research to students' engagement with the intent of inculcating in them best practices expected in engineering practices.

He promised the visiting delegation that the University Management would readily work with them to ensure that engineering students of the University become active participants of activities of the Nigerian Society of Engineers, Ota Chapter.

Members of the University Management present at the parley include the Registrar, Dr Oluwasegun Omidiora; Director, Financial Services, Pastor Gbenga Kiki; Head, Department of Civil Engineering, Professor Anthony Ede; Head, Department of Petroleum Engineering, Professor Prieye Orodu; Head, Department of Chemical Engineering, Professor Vincent Efeovbokhan.
