by O.A Ighodalo

Engineering have contributed to the development of the modern world and can help in enhancing the sustainable development of the third world. The sustainable development needs of Africa have been enumerated and the role that African engineers can play in meeting these needs have been highlighted especially in applying appropriate technology to these developmental needs. The various African governments should give attention to engineering development by investing in basic infrastructures, developing enabling policies and fostering regional cooperation in Africa. A revision of higher education Engineering curricula to incorporate sustainable development and appropriate technology studies and funding of appropriate technology research are among the recommendations.
