NITDA reiterates commitment to advancing engineering procedures

The National Information Technology Development Agency has stated that it is open to working with African engineering professionals to integrate cutting-edge technological tools, services, and knowledge into engineering processes for increased productivity and client satisfaction.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, this was announced by the NITDA Director General, Kashifu Inuwa CCIE, when he hosted a delegation from the Engineers Board of Kenya.

It was led by its chairman, Engr. Erastus K. Mwongera, and a team from the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria, headed by its Registrar, Engr. Prof. Adisa A. Bello, at the Agency’s Corporate Headquarters in Abuja.

According to the NITDA Director General, emerging technologies, are changing how engineers build and develop their equipment globally, adopting them by Africa would be a critical step toward maximizing efficiency in its engineering operations.

“In mechanical engineering, for instance, there are no longer physical machines on the job; instead, there are intelligent, networked devices that can produce data for predictive maintenance and predictive analytics.

“I am happy that Africa is now turning inward to consider how we might pool our resources to build African cons. Engineers are problem solvers, and so long as the problems are local, local effort will also be needed,” he said.

Inuwa reiterated that technology has disrupted engineering processes internationally and that NITDA has established a number of programs and strategies to strengthen the creative ecosystem both domestically and abroad.

He declared, “At NITDA, we support innovation-driven businesses with the goal of expanding them to the worldwide market. We have programs that unite young people, create ecologies, and develop answers to challenges.”

The head of NITDA praised the effect of information technology on the status quo of ongoing traditional processes, saying that it has been “phenomenally inspirational” by enabling innovative ideas for improved business value propositions and developing fresh methods of problem-solving.
