SPE Calls For Boost In Engineering Teaching, ‘One Standard’ For Nigeria
“There is an urgent need to refocus on building engineering capacity in the universities”, the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) remarks. “This effort must be structured to fit the emerging requirements of the industry. The curriculum for the universities should be re-visited for relevance to include such areas as: Process and Design Engineering, Materials Engineering, Project Management etc. currently being handled as professional certifications”.
The education challenge is one of the several points raised in the communique which came out of the deliberations of the Annual Oloibiri Lecture, organized by the Nigerian council of the global body of petroleum engineers, in Abuja, last March.
