Apart from science and technology, engineering is one of the most important sectors of the Nigerian economy. It is therefore important for professionals in the sector to digitize their activities to capitalize on the digital opportunities.  

The Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE), the umbrella organization of engineering professionals in Nigeria, inaugurated its Innovation Center in Abuja on Wednesday, September 13.

According to its executives, the new center will serve as a sanctuary for engineers and professionals to collaborate and innovate, and offer training and resources to facilitate the adoption of digital technologies by businesses and organizations.

According to Tasiu Sa'ad Gidari-Wudil, President of the Nigerian Society of Engineers, the aim of the center is to empower Nigerian engineers, allowing them to deliver on what is expected from them. "The innovation hub is where Engineers will come with ideas, research and develop” those ideas before commercializing the end products to the public and stakeholders, he added.  

The 600 million naira ($780,000) center will integrate technologies, services, tools and data analysis. It will also offer smart business solutions to members, facilitating the learning curve by providing available resources, with an e-library accessible both online and on company premises.

The implementation of the center is in line with one of the administration's priorities to ensure ease of doing business and greater transparency within the profession.

Once completed, the center will also serve as a space to explore the immense potential of artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things. The idea is to find solutions to complex challenges, revolutionizing industries and the way we interact with the world around us.
