Who is an Engineer?

An Engineer is a person licensed to practice engineering in a particular field. Becoming an engineer will force you to work on many transferable skills including problem-solving and critical reasoning.

Engineering Definition.

Engineering can be defined as the creative application of scientific principles to designing, developmental structures, machines, apparatus, or manufacturing processes, or works utilizing them singly or in combination; or to construct or operate the same with full cognizance of their design.

Take note that after graduation from any accredited Nigerian tertiary institution, you need to be fully registered with COREN to be licensed in Nigeria.
