History of the NIEEE
In 1984, Engr.(Dr.) Olusegun Ajayi, FNSE, PPNSE (1989-1990) led a movement for the formation of professional divisions among the various disciplines that constitute the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE), aimed at strengthening professional development activities among the disciplines. This movement also enjoyed the support of Engr A.O Faluyi, the then President of NSE. He presented a paper to the Council of the NSE with a strong appeal in favour of the formation of Divisions within the NSE. After extensive deliberations, the Council granted approval for the formation of Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Divisions; this was based on the visibility and numerical strength of these disciplines. In 1985, the Nigerian Society of Engineers, Electrical Division was formed with Engr.(Dr.) Olusegun Ajayi as the pioneer chairman.The Electrical Division was the first Division within the NSE that was formed.
Annual General Meeting/International Conference
The Nigerian Society of Engineers, Electrical Division introduced the Annual General Meeting/International Conference and Exhibition on Power and Telecommunications (ICEPT) as the apex formal assembly for all Electrical and Electronics Engineers in Nigeria. The AGM/ICEPT features election of the Executive Committee of the institution (in an election year), the presentation of technical papers on topical issues and exhibition on the latest engineering products, systems and technologies.
Our Specialization are:
- POWER ENGINEERING
Power engineering, also called power systems engineering, is a subfield of energy engineering and electrical engineering that deals with the generation, transmission, distribution and utilization of electric power and the electrical devices connected to such systems including generators, motors and transformers. Although much of the field is concerned with the problems of three-phase AC power – the standard for large-scale power transmission and distribution across the modern world – a significant fraction of the field is concerned with the conversion between AC and DC power and the development of specialized power systems such as those used in aircraft or for electric railway networks. Power engineering draws the majority of its theoretical base from electrical engineering and while some power engineers could be considered energy engineers, energy engineers often do not have the theoretical electrical engineering background to understand power engineering.
Communications engineers work within a number of industries, including:
internet and computing technologies;
networking and telecommunications;
Some engineers concentrate on applying technical knowledge, while others focus on managerial activities. Many posts include elements of both managerial and technical responsibilities.
The technical aspect of the role includes using specialist knowledge to design and deliver solutions, as well as providing technical guidance to others within the employing organisation.
Managerial responsibilities involve planning and managing projects, ensuring that they are delivered on time, within budget and to the agreed standards of quality.
Electronics engineering, or electronic engineering, is an electrical engineering discipline which utilizes non-linear and active electrical components (such as semiconductor devices, especially transistors, diodes and integrated circuits) to design electronic circuits, devices, microprocessors, microcontrollers and other systems. The discipline typically also designs passive electrical components, usually based on printed circuit boards.
Electronics is a subfield within the wider electrical engineering academic subject but denotes a broad engineering field that covers subfields such as analog electronics, digital electronics, consumer electronics, embedded systems and power electronics. Electronics engineering deals with implementation of applications, principles and algorithms developed within many related fields, for example solid-state physics, radio engineering, telecommunications, control systems, signal processing, systems engineering, computer engineering, instrumentation engineering, electric power control, robotics, and many others.
