Onwuachu Fredrick Obinna

(Electrical & Electronics Engineering, 500 Level)

'I chose to study Electrical & Electronics Engineering at Nile University because of her reputation as an employer of highly trained lecturers with vast international experience. So far, my expectations with regard to the school’s quality of education have been fully met. Also, participating in extra-curricular activities on campus, especially the University’s Students Representative Council where I served as Vice-president and President, has helped me develop important leadership skills.'
