The Graduating Students of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Covenant University (CU), Ota have been urged to be ethical engineers and never allow unethical practices to bring shame and disgrace to their profession.
This advice was given by Prince (Engr.) Biodun Oyedepo, the former National President, Nigerian Institute of Mechanical Engineers (NiMechE) while delivering a lecture at the Induction Ceremony of the graduating class of Mechanical Engineering students on Thursday, May 21, 2015 at the University.
In his lecture titled “Towards Professionalism in Mechanical Engineering,” Engr. Oyedepo noted that Mechanical Engineers should inject humanity into their practice and be conscious of the safety and welfare of the immediate and far environments.
Prince Oyedepo also encouraged the students to keep improving themselves in the field. “Be active in the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) and NiMechE to keep abreast of developments in Engineering. Attend Engineering seminars and workshops, imbibe Engineering to be a distinct and outstanding professional in today’s crowded market space,” he said.
Speaking on the purpose of the programme, the immediate past National President, NiMechE, Engr. Ayo Fanimokun, stated that the aim was to bring students into the membership of the body after their graduation.
According to him, another benefit of the membership is that it automatically gives them two marks during their professional examination.
The Dean, College of Engineering, Professor Cleophas Lotto, praised the efforts of the students during the years of learning in school, their dedication towards achieving academic excellence and their determination to garner everything needed to build them for what lies ahead.
He, however, implored the students to comport themselves well in the outside world after their graduation.
