COREN is mostly pronounced among the Engineers because its been misconstrued to be the highest level in Engineering profession which is wrong. Its just because of the prestigious nature of being called an “Engineer” and I can tell you that it doesn’t bring food to the table. Its what you can do that matters not the tittle.
Where are the engineers of yesterday who refused to update their knowledge , I can tell you that they are obsolete and redundant because they don’t fit into the present day engineering personnel requirements.
NSE (Nigerian Society of Engineers) is society of people with like minds, knowledge or profession (Engineering ). Its just a society and its membership is voluntary. It’s being made compulsory because its part of the requirements of COREN to be a member of a professional body. If there was a professional body or society of engineering apart from NSE, it can also be recognized. Its not compulsory to join NSE but being a COREN certified engineer is Mandatory.
