This paper examines the role of engineering in the context of national development and takes a look at it globally. Globalisation can be said to mean the well-accepted objectives of engineering education, which are not defined by national views only but by worldwide scope of the development of engineering and technology. The implications of globalisation to developing countries are highlighted while its associated problems and sustainability in the third world countries are discussed. The paper notes that some changes are required in Nigeria for her quest to launch into the global trend and such participation should take cognisance of national development.
