dc.description.abstractNigeria has for long been a developing nation without much progress. An observation of some of the countries of the world reveals a strong interplay between the quality of engineering education and the technological advancement of such country. This paper succinctly examines the practice of engineering education in Nigeria and shows that not much attention is given to the various components that make for quality engineering education. There is the need for academia - the trainer of the manpower for technological advancement, and industry - the user of such manpower, to come together in an interactive partnership. It is the synergy achieved by such interaction that technologically advances a country. The government has been identified as the facilitator of such a partnership and the engineering professional body as the umbrella under which all three - academia, government and industry can meet and strategize.en_US
