The Clintonel Innovation Centre (Engineering Tech Hub), in partnership with the Faculty of Engineering, University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN), is set to hold the UNN Engineering Career Fair 2021, from Wednesday, September 22 to 24, 2021.

The career fair is an industry-academia programme, which aims to bridge the engineering skills gap in Nigeria between the academia and the industry, aligning engineering education to the needs of the industry.

It brings together engineering experts from different industries to enlighten and train engineering students, lecturers and graduates on the skills and expectations of the industry. In addition to the lessons and insights from these professionals, there will be practical training workshops in modern and emerging technologies. It will be a hybrid event with both physical and
virtual participants.

The UNN Career Fair is implemented as part of Engineering for Industry (E4I) supported by Engineering X, an international collaboration founded by the Royal Academy of Engineering UK and Lloyd’s Register Foundation.

According to the organisers, the goal of this edition is to equip engineering students and graduates with industry-relevant skills; inspire fresh engineering graduates to become entrepreneurs and job creators; introduction of engineering students and graduates to modern and emerging technologies; to prepare engineering graduates for job application, interview and selection and to create and strengthen partnerships between UNN and the industry, among others.

Panel discussions will include running an engineering business from scratch; career in energy (Oil and Gas) sector; and is engineering for me?, while the workshops will focus on future of work; Computer Aided Design (CAD); 3D Printing; CNC Machining; Virtual Reality; and Laser Engraving, among others.
