How to Train Engineers: Project Based Learning

Category : Blog

Through Project Based Learning approach the contestants at the Nigerian Genius Engineering Competition (2022)  were trained to acquire essential industry and manufacturing skills which they deployed to build products using different manufacturing processes. The students built the following products which Nigeria currently imports:

  • Mobile Phone Chargers (produced through electronics design software, PCB CNC milling and 3D printing)
  • Adjustable Tables (produced through metal fabrication)
  • Engine Parts (crank shaft produced through metal casting and connecting rod produced through CNC machining)
  • Plastic enclosures and engravings (produced through laser cutting and engraving)

This builds capacity for local production of goods which will boost Nigeria’s economy and strengthen the Naira.
