There is nothing FUTO (Federal University of Technology Owerri) has not given me. I was on the mountaintop few years ago when the University asked me to deliver the University Public Lecture, becoming the 15th person in the school history. As a student in FUTO, I listened to one of those lecturers delivered by Obi Prof. Joseph Chike Edozien, the Asagba of Asaba, a former professor in MIT.
On Oct 24th, I will have the honour to deliver the 2019 FUTO Alumni Biennial Lecture, speaking on a topic The Pursuit of Exponential Development.
This video (below) will be on air across Nigerian TVs. My alma mater, FUTO, has been raising a generation of technical leaders for the world. You will meet Dr Kingsley Fregene:
“Kingsley Fregene is the Group Leader for Robotics & Intelligent Systems at Lockheed Martin, Advanced Technology Laboratories (LM ATL). His team develops advanced Robotics, Autonomy and Unmanned Systems technologies for missions in aerial, ground and maritime environments.”
He is one of the most important men in U.S. defence! He was my mentor in school, two years ahead of me, and simply “peerless”. When I graduated, I followed his path. He is a Nigerian.
