Earlier in the year, driven by desire to bring innovators to the university, Ijaodola Jamiu convened the First LASU Engineering Summit in Nigeria for Engineering Students. The event as a huge success and attracted various engineering leaders and captains of industry as well as other universities representatives.
So positive and impactful was the event that the Vice Chancellor of the university personally commended the initiative and team behind it. Currently Plans are on top gear for the 2nd edition of the summit which will hold early next year.
Ijaodola continues to bring innovative ideas in the service of engineering such that one would nearly forget he is still a student. MyEngineer, having followed his many activities and passion on and off campus is without reservation marking him out as one of the young budding engineering leaders to be look out for.
We congratulate him for this award and look forward to more positive accomplishments in the course of engineering services.
