Article Title: What are they made up of today? A look at Engineering Education in Developing Nations with Nigeria as a Case Study
by Samuel T. Adedokun

There are thousands of young people in developing nations today whose dreams are being 'assassinated' and their hopes being 'erased'. These young men and women will be the ones to lead their nation's engineering industry tomorrow but may we ask what they are made up of today? This paper looks at what developing nations engineers are made up of today, how developed nations and the international professional societies like IEEE can help to save them out of their present predicament and save present generations and those coming. A case study for this article is Nigeria. Nigeria is the largest black nation in the World with about 130 million people and about 90% live below poverty of less than 1$ a day according to recent United Nations report. Also, Nigeria is the third largest exporter of crude oil in the world.
