ABSTRACT
This report reveals the experience I have acquired as an engineer and how I have
contributed in my little way towards the Engineering Profession. It details out specific
activities I have carried out both academically, professionally and socially. I am quite
excited about the social contribution because it is an initiative that brings light and
opportunity to the engineering profession via the schools.
Engineering is the engine that drives the transformation of a nation. Thank you for
sustaining the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) and leading it to greater heights, but
there is great work to be done and together we can achieve great things,
