Welcome Address by the Academy President, Engr. (Mrs.) J. O. Maduka, MFR during the Press Conference, 2017 Annual General Meeting, Technology Dinner, Annual Lecture, Life Achievement Awards and Induction of new Fellows.

The last one year tenure of the Academy President was remarkable with timeline of events of national importance which she spearheaded and was handsomely supported by the Fellows of the Academy. She was always full of appreciation in all the activities that heralded her presidency as those events attracted more partnership, investment, collaborations and linkages which are yielding impact and positive results to the Academy and national development.

During this period, the captains of industry, academia, artisans, public and private enterprises were hosted at these functions, thus producing landmark achievement from emerging facts of their comments and feedback on energy, engineering education, telecommunications, academia-industry linkage and infrastructural development etc.

Her appraisal counted so much that the available opportunities were utilized in her first term that set the pace in redefining engineering practice both to the nation and for human capacity building through national discourse on science, engineering and technological initiatives that was witnessed in the following activities:
