Joining IEEE has greatly helped me to achieve my professional goals, sharpen my soft skills and expand my network beyond my imagination.

It is my pleasure to invite electro-technology professionals from industry and academia, IEEE members and students, policy makers in education, science and technology to the 3rd International Conference on Electro - Technology for National Development - IEEE NIGERCON 2017. IEEE NIGERCON conference is an initiative of IEEE Nigeria Section, the first NIGERCON was held in 2010. This is in-line with the IEEE HQ strategy to do more activities in Africa to fast-track technological innovation and development for humanity.

IEEE conferences are unique, every participant has the opportunity to pick up a new knowledge or skill for higher productivity. IEEE NIGERCON 2017 is packaged with 2 Workshops: Professional Activities for members and the general public, then Power and Energy Society(PES) workshop for power professionals and enthusiasts. The Professional Activities workshop will be on leadership training, Innovation, effective presentation, cybersecurity and volunteer training.

IEEE depends deeply on the strength of its membership and volunteer leadership to accomplish its goals in local environments.

I invite as many of you as possible to join this global society so that the planned strategy to uplift African countries will become a reality soon.

Please come and be part of this success story of making Nigeria and the rest of its sister countries in Africa the next “high-tech frontier” and a “hotbed of technological innovation”.

I wish you a safe trip as you travel to Owerri for Nigercon 2017!!!
