Okwesilieze Uwadoka is a student of the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Lagos who joined the program in February 2021. He has worked on several virtual lab projects which involved creating models on the Fusion 360 API and carrying out Computational Fluid Dynamics simulations on Autodesk CFD.
Temitayo Omodehin is a 23-year-old Mechanical Engineering student in his 4th year of study at the University of Lagos, Nigeria. He got accepted into the program this year and specialized in computational fluid dynamics simulation of flow and heating systems, as well as the parametric design of 3D models.
Chika-Umeh Chiedozie is a student of the Department of Mechanical Engineering in the University of Lagos. During his internship, he worked on virtual laboratory projects involving the use of Autodesk Fusion 360 to produce parametric 3D models of mechanical components and performing Computational Fluid Dynamics simulations on the models using Autodesk CFD.
Fadil Ojifinni is a 4 th year student of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Lagos. During his program, he worked on the Parametric design, prototyping and testing of Yam pounder blades with the goal of producing a culturally competent food processor for a well-loved Nigerian staple.
Big thanks to all our attendees, competitors, judges, corporate and individual sponsors for making the first S2P Engineering Design Competition a success.
Huge congratulations to our 10 finalists and to team Koye Hydro who emerged ahead of over 40 teams as the Winner of the S2PAfrica EDC 2022, taking home $10,000 IDRC grand prize and $2000 from Cummins West Africa, to fund the development of their project as well as teams KeyTrick and Improved Charcoal Stove came in second and third respectively.
A new bar has been set and we can’t wait for EDC 2023.
A feature interview with Miss Bukunmi Shonde, one of the undergraduate Mechanical Engineering students who took the Continuum Mechanics course developed by S2PAfrica. She was on a six-month internship program with Tropical Naturals Limited Lagos, Nigeria, and shares in this interview how she was able to apply knowledge obtained in the classroom during her internship.
An undergraduate engineering degree is invaluable as it provides a launchpad to multiple careers including several technology industries, banking and finance, and even law (as a patent attorney).On receiving an engineering degree, you can expect to improve your numeracy and logical thinking skills and to have developed a solid work ethic that provides a good foundation for a global career. There are a few things that you should think about as you go through your undergraduate career.
