On Monday, 6th November, 2017, the Nigerian Institute of Mechanical Engineers, University of Ibadan Branch (NIMechEUI), held, at the Trenchard Hall, their first conference which had, in special attendance, the 1987 set.

The conference was tagged ‘Mechanical Engineering: Past Present Future’ and also had, as part of its programme, career talks from some alumni of 1987 and for this year’s final year (500 level) students of the Department.

The career talks were given by three of the alumni present at the occasion: Engineer Sunday Komolafe, Engineer Lanre Alabi and Engineer Tony Attah, the former MD of Shell Nigeria, now the MD of NLNG.

Engineer Sunday Komolafe spoke of Nigeria's lack of a good maintenance culture, while Engineer Lanre Alabi encouraged the students to think creatively and be ready to improve the society, rather than just for money; whereas Engineer Tony Attah emphasised the need to build intellectual curiosity and think in 3-D (three-dimension).

Also, a Masters student of the Department, Mr Adisa Ahmed, delivered a PowerPoint presentation titled ‘Automobiles Since 17th Century’, where he mentioned the different car types there have been as evolution occurs — the steam car, the electric car, the Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) car and the envisioned fart car.

Another PowerPoint presentation entitled ‘Why we need to Imagine Different Futures’ was from a final year student of the Department, Mr Lotachukwu Ibe who spoke of the necessity of a future of more practical than theory; where people are connected, not isolated and look out for solutions to problems.

At the end of the programme, the alumni as well as the students vacated the hall for the unveiling of their gifts for the school, the Faculty of Technology and the Department respectively.
