UNIZIK selected for UK training, gets £100,000 prize

This follows an award of £100,000 received by Nigeria and five other African countries from the UK Royal Academy of Engineering to boost engineering skills in Africa.

A statement made available on Monday by an alumnus of the UK Royal Academy of Engineering, Ugochukwu Ifediora, said the Deputy Director of UNIZIK Business School, Dr Chinedu Onyeizugbe, attracted the award.

Ifediora said the programme aimed at addressing the engineering skills shortage in sub-Saharan Africa and showcasing the role of engineering in driving inclusive economic development in the region.

He added that both institutions were taken positive steps towards human capacity development in Nigeria.
