NIGERIAN SOCIETY OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERS TRAINS LANDMARK UNIVERSITY FACULTY
The Chemical Engineering Department of Landmark University in collaboration with the Nigerian Society of Chemical Engineers (a division of the Nigerian Society of Engineers) and Spunt Innovatia held an intensive five (5) days training workshop between 22ndand 26thJanuary, 2018 to further strengthen the capacity of Faculty in the Department.
In a show of support and solidarity to the effort of the Department towards fortifying the knowledge base of members of the Faculty to meet with expected standard in terms of cutting edge technology, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Adeniyi Olayanju was present in one of the sessions to convey the University’s Management appreciation to the Department for making the training a reality.
“If we must be relevant in Nigeria today, we must keep updating our knowledge base, both as individual and as an entity. My presence here today is a show of appreciation on what the Department is doing because this is just the way to go.”
In her response, the Head, Department of Chemical Engineering, Engr. Dr. Olamide Olawale appreciated the Management led by the Vice-Chancellor for their support and approval for the training. She noted further that the training was put together to empower Chemical Engineering Faculty and Staff with the much needed specialized tools for the enhancement of teaching and research in Landmark University, as this would enable them to acquire software skills needed in the present-day analysis of real life problems and to achieve 100 percent compliance with global standards. Dr. Olawale highlighted that the scope of the training would cover specialized software like MATLAB, Aspen Hysys and ANSYS.
The lead facilitator, representing Spunt Innovatia, Engr. Zachius Adesanya in his remarks said that the vision set by Landmark University to be pacesetter in Agriculture is quite noble and Engineers would play a major role in actualizing it, as Engineers are known for designing models that transforms into reality. While appreciating the Vice-Chancellor for taking out time from his busy schedule to be part of the training, he charged members of the Department to fully utilize the opportunity that has been provided by the University, as they have the responsibility to groom the new generation of Engineers that would lead the nation out of her current challenges.
The training is expected to enhance quality of teaching in the Universitywhich will equip the students with the needed industrial software, making them relevant across the globe. The knowledge acquired will make design of chemical/food processes and equipment much easier, less time consuming, less costly and more accurate, as this would place Landmark University on a strategic position on both national and global maps.
