APWEN INTERVENTION PROGRAMME FOR ENGINEERING WORKSHOPS IN TERTIARY INSTITUTIONS
This project is aimed at revamping the engineering workshops and laboratories in our tertiary institutions. Under this project, APWEN has visited many tertiary institution laboratories and take note of the equipments needed in order for the universities to be producing full equipped engineers. The replacement of some Worn out equipment has also been done. The Association of Women Engineers of Nigeria is calling for all to support this project and make our engineering laboratories fully equipped.
Yes! YOU CAN BE A MENTOR
A Mentor is an experience person who advises, helps and supports someone into becoming a more competent, experience professional in his field by exposing the individual to some of '' those things'' you might think don't matter.
CAN I BE A MENTOR?
Yes, you can. Women mentoring women will fill the generational gap in exposure, experience and excellence in various professions especially engineering. It will open avenues for advancing engineering women. You can share your experience, your failures and success with someone ready to learn from you. A mentee will be able to get the understanding of the role of a women engineer in today's world and how they have helped to change the world.
You can really make a difference in someone's life and professional. Think about It.
