    In the 2018/2019 academic session of the University of Ibadan, 43 students finished with first class honours degree in various technology fields, with 112 making second class honours (upper division).

    The Dean, Faculty of Technology, Olaosebikan Fakolujo, disclosed this at an induction ceremony for 293 students of the 2018/2019 session as graduate members of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE), which took place on Wednesday, 3rd March, 2021.

    The induction ought to have taken place in 2020 but had been postponed as a result of the COVID-19 lockdown, ASUU strike and other national and global crises.

    "I am delighted to inform this gathering that 43 of them (14.7%) graduated with First-Class Honours,’ said the Dean. ‘2 are from the Agricultural and Environmental Engineering Department; 1 is from Civil Engineering Department; 18 are from Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department; 10 are from Industrial and Production Engineering Department; 9 are from Mechanical Engineering Department; and 3 are from Petroleum Engineering Department. Also, 112 of them (38.3%) graduated with Second Class Honours (Upper Division); 127 of them (43.3%) (graduated with Second Class Honours (Lower Division); while 10 of them (3.4%) graduated with Third Class Honours and 1 of them (0.3%)  graduated with a Pass Degree."

    The Dean declared: "It is crucial for you to identify with the reality that Nigeria needs to cease from being a consuming nation and wake up from her slumber by engaging in productive activities that can guarantee rapid industrialisation, earnings from exportation and economic transformation. Technological development is undoubtedly a prerequisite for industrialisation and economic development in any nation of the world."

    He enjoined the graduands to acquaint themselves more with modern technical and management skills to be relevant engineers both nationally and internationally.

    "I am glad and confident that today’s inductees have received very sound engineering training that will make them a spectacular workforce desired for impactful national and international technological advancement and growth, there is a need for you to continuously acquaint yourselves with modern technical and management skills acquisitions that will make you an excellent asset for the emerging economy of the world. To be relevant Engineers in the emerging economy, you are expected to constantly be abreast with state-of-the-art skills and technology in order to be well prepared for critical roles in the following core areas," he further said.

    The best graduating female student in the person of Favour Victoria Aiyegbeni, said, "I was not actually aiming high. I ensure I understand my courses. I didn’t want to go out there without knowing what I learnt. It was such a motivation to be the best at what I knew that pushed me. I see myself doing a lot on robotics and AI. I have actually started working on related things, and I see myself also delving into business as a consultant and business owner. We need to create awareness and enabling environment by the government to those pushing innovation. I have seen a lot of people build some things which are fine but not cool for African settings. So it's good to be innovative. But it must be tied to solving a societal problem."

    The overall best graduating (male) student, Emmanuel Nwachukwu, stated, "Africa’s greatest resource is her people. They are bright, intelligent and have the potentials; but when the environment is not set right for you it will be very difficult to flourish. I don’t see travelling abroad as an end; it’s a means of building competence. I can then go and know how to do it better and come back here and solve problems. I am investing in myself to leverage on technology knowledge, programming languages and data science."

    Congratulations to all these graduates on their graduation/induction ceremony.
