About NSE – Nigerian Society of Engineers
The Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) was established in 1958 with the primary objective of providing a rallying forum for Nigerian Engineers to address the problem of colonial marginalization for an increased participation in the policy formulation and physical development of our fatherland.
Since then, the Nigerian engineer has recorded tremendous achievements in the areas of science, engineering, and technology.
Unfortunately, the Nigerian engineer
has had to cope with a very hostile environment occasioned by the invasion of the engineering profession by quacks and impostors of sorts.
This has resulted in very poor standard job, numerous abandoned projects everywhere, structural failures, fires and
