A call has been made to the Nigerian Mechanical Engineers to tap from the abundant opportunities in the industrial sector and venture into the world of entrepreneurship: Even if on small scale This was made doing that Last End of the Year Lecture and Annual Award Ceremony organized by the Nigerian Institution of Mechanical Engineers in Lagos.
Making this call was the Managing Director, Langrad Engineering and Manufacturing Company, Engr O. A. Adewolu while delivering the Keynote Lecture at the event. Engr Adewolu chronicled the roles of mechanical engineers from the industrial revolution era and concluded that mechanical engineers hold much promises in the current setting while challenging the engineers to brace up to the challenge.
“Prior to development of technology, “he noted, “science, which is the father of technology and grandfather of engineering started from the enquiring minds of some gifted individuals who sacrificed their time and their fortunes to move humanity forward. When we see automobiles ships, textiles machineries, chemical plantsetc, it is the result of painstaking efforts of earlier generation.”
He reminded that many people lost lives while trying to contribute into human civilization . He recommended that the NSE should collaborate with tertiary institutions in the country and initiate a Museum for industrial, technology engineering plants and equipment from the late 50s till early years of this millennium. Such museum, according to him would aid the coming generation in understanding how much of sacrifice has been made by those who came before them.
