The Nigerian Universities Engineering Students’ Association (NUESA), University of Ilorin presents her essay contest. In the early days and even of recent, professionals and students in the engineering field are widely perceived to be lacking in formal communication skills (oratory and writing) which stand to be corrected.
The Association with high sense of responsibility to improve the standards of her members hereby deems it fit to organize this contest. The Engineering Essay Contest was conceptualized to foster the engineering students’ writing skills and also the ability to think as professionals in the engineering realm.
The aims and objectives of this contest are:
» To enhance practical research writing acumen in engineering students.
» To foster appreciation within engineering students in issues related to engineering and technology.
» To improve engineering documentation via writing.
» To air the intellectual perspective of engineering students on the nation development.
» To encourage academic competition and excellence
