You're an electrical engineering graduate, you cant wire a house.
You're a mech engineering graduate, you can't fix your car.

They keep shouting "engineering" when their skulls is filled with only abstract. Back then in school, they didn't let us hear word "Engineering is a profressional course" bla bla bla.
Every parent wants at least one of their kids to be an engineer. As an engineering student, You look down on physical sciences (chemistry, maths et al). We all know what the physical sciences are bringing to the table, what are engineering students bringing to the table? Other than eyeing one Oil company job, they wouldn't still get after graduation.

Even the roadsides are better than the ones littered around campus with shoulders raised claiming engine boys.

Engineering in Nigeria is a joke, quote me anywhere.

Abeg make Una stop.

I no be engineer but make Una no mock engine guys.

Many Nigerian graduates can't practice what they learnt in the university.

So the question should be "What are most Nigerian university students doing in school?"

there is a big difference my brother engineers design and the technician carry out the project. Engineers are not trained to be like technician, engineers are expected to know more than the technician. Y do u think all the all the blames goes to the engineers and not the technician after a failed project?

The system is bad. One can't give what he doesn't have.
Take our lecturers for instance. We are graded by our ability to pass exams. Engineering students are very good at passing exams not in the real engineering.

There are few exceptions though.

2.1, 3rd class and 'pass' graduates are sometimes more practically involved than the 1st class.

Our system is terrible.


I'm an Electronic/Computer Engineer.

This is a very disgraceful thing to say. Shame! An engineer saying he cn't fix his car, wire his house or fix his gen because he is trained to design. Shame!
