NICE is the civil division of the Nigerian Society of Engineers. The Civil Engineering Division was made official in 1984 by the NSE Council. The responsibility of fostering and organizing the activities of the Division fell on the Rev. Canon Engr. M. O. Akintobi, who labored very hard to scale throughout the early impediment of generating the interest of members in the Division.
In December 2001, the Civil Division was institutionalized by the general determination of all Civil Engineers in Port Harcourt. Engr. Segun Adedeji then became the lead the way Chairman.
The current National Chairman, Engr Aishatu Umar is the first female National Chairman of the division and also the first Northerner Civil engineer National Chairman.
We Congratulate the leadership and entire members of the Institution for this giant stride.
