UNN, Igbinedion varsity to commence degree in aviation studies

The University of Nigeria, Nsukka and Igbinedion University, Okada in Edo State  have partnered with an Irish aviation training company, Newcastle Aerodrome, to commence degree programme in Aviation Studies.

At the event, both institutions agreed to bridge the gap in manpower in aviation by training professionals.

The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, represented by one of his aides, Adewale Adelaide, said, “The government will support anything that would improve knowledge and expand our technical expertise in every area. That is the reason government is looking for partnerships with the private sector.”

The Vice-Chancellor of UNN, Prof. Charles Igwe, who was at the occasion, described the partnership as the best thing that had happened to him in his capacity as the VC.

While decrying the lack of aviation studies in Nigerian Universities, he said that it was one of the areas the country was yet to fully tap into in terms curriculum studies.

“It is good to know that the training will start in UNN. We are going to ensure that Nigeria gets the best in aviation studies in UNN”, Igwe stated.

Also speaking, the Vice-Chancellor, Igbinedion University, Prof. Lawrence Ezemonye, said, “We are positive that the partnership, when fully operational, will bear mutual benefits to our two parties while advancing quality delivery of assigned responsibilities.”

Earlier, Chief Flying Officer and Director of Aerodrome Newcastle, John Nugent, said that the partnership was historic being the first time two Nigerian Universities – the first public university and the first private university would be coming in partnership with an international aviation school to enroll students to train as pilots.
