IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR PROSPECTIVE APPLICANTS WISHING TO REGISTER WITH COREN THROUGH HND-PGD

In an announcement made on the council official website, the Council for the Regulations of Engineering in Nigeria will no longer register HND with PGD alone for engineer category.

The statement read

“After December 2021, applicants with HND and PGD will, in addition, have M.Eng. degree to Register with COREN as an Engineer.”

Thus any applicant with Higher National Diploma HND qualification will now be required to have Masters in addition to Postgraduate Diploma  PGD before he can register as engineer.

In the current system, an HND holder needs to have a postgraduate diploma in same course to be qualified to register as engineer.

COREN registers four categories of members: Engineers, technologist, technicians and craftsmen. The COREN Act as amended empowered COREN to regulate engineering profession in Nigeria in all ramifications

  1. Q1. What of an HBD holder with a PGD in information communication technology ICT, Can he or she register in this present situation?

  2. Q1,HND Electrical Electronics Engineering holder with PGD ICT , can he or she register in this present situation

  3. Funny country. So there is no provision for HND with years of experience to be upgraded to become an engineer. This happens only in Nigeria where mediocrity is celebrated above productivity. No wonder we can not even produce pencil withou foreign interventions.

  4. So engineering bodies in Nigeria are now telling us that HND holders will not be recognize/registered as an engineer.
    Engineering is not about knowing it in book, but practically.

  5. *THE NIGERIAN NON – OIL ECONOMY INITIATIVES TO BE EMULATED BY ALL MEANS – IN CONJUNCTION WITH SIMTECH…🙏❗*

    Simtech indigenous creativities are the only viable incentives and intervention to the answer on *”Non-Oil”* economy System to thrive without hesitation or procrastination, also to alleviate poverty in particular by engaging the jobless & restive youths of the Nation massively on practical viable creativities & fabrication of numerous indigenous products already available to be utilized, then be employing them for mass – production of the Company’s numerous marketable products.

    *Note:* Simtech Electro – Creativities (Ent. – BN: 2806760) has all the needed relevant, numerous and viable World – class Industrial Technological Innovations / Inventions already on ground with all it takes technically for Nigeria to be industrialized within the shortest possible time (in due course) and become *”Non-Oil”* economy System or Nation as China, India, etc. if only given the attention to display our competency with the available finished Products / Prototype Creativities to create jobs and wealth.

    👀 *Seeing is believing…🙄👍❗*

    Why not test and see *SIMTECH* feasible proactive measures that could be utilized to overcome the unemployment challenges, while engaging the jobless and restive youths that are committing daily crimes all over – massively…😏

    Well, am just trying to make a common sense while still soliciting for encouragement & solidarity to be shown..!

    If still overlooked as usual, then no problem. But I must say that; one day Nigeria will look for me when it will be too late then, because some other Nations shall see the (endowed potentials) in me just one day and pick me up from there, it is then Nigeria will know they ‘ve missed somebody which will be too late to come back again. I tell you, my talent must be utilized anywhere my attention is needed…😪

    _Thanks for your perusal..!_

    Yours faithfully for greater impact: *Simtech…👌*
