EWB Nigeria will operate two Institutes
Institute of Design, Akure
We believe that design is very much a part of engineering and when it got
removed from engineering, engineering became castrated and inhuman. Now we
are bringing back human-centered design as a way to solve problems and
develop technologies and products that people can use.
Social entrepreneurs, businesses, and other innovators have used
human-centered design around the world to create solutions for many
different types of challenges.
Human-centered design covers problem solvers of any stripe a chance to
design with communities, to deeply understand the people they’re looking to
serve, to dream up scores of ideas, and to create innovative new solutions
rooted in people’s actual needs. The key to the process is empathizing with
the users (citizen) to uncover unmet needs by understanding their beliefs,
values, motivations, behaviors, pains, gains and challenges and to provide
innovative solution concepts.
Vision:To make Nigeria a design hub
Mission: To train people in human-centered design as it relates to product and
experience design and development.
Institute of Technology, Nnewi
EWB Nigeria is partnering with MegaGrowth Solutions Ltd to establish the
MegaGrowth Institute of Technology (MiT) located in Nnewi Anambra State.
MiT will be at the fore-from of educating people to be leaders in
technology who anticipate the problems of the future and develop solutions
for them today. It will be a place of inspiration and nurturing of tech
talents while contributing solutions to the most challenging problems
It will blend scientific theorems, engineering concepts and technological
education to solve real world problems. It will have a positive influence
on the city of Nnewi and Nigeria. Through the innovations emanating from
this Institute, the city will benefit and thrive- and it is through
collaborations that what it does will continue to be strengthened.
Our dream is that the Institute will become a center for the training of
Nigerian engineers to become problem solvers and global engineers.
Vision MiT Nnewi will be a great institute where scientific theorems will be used
to solve problems of humanity through the development of solutions.
Mission:To provide relevant instructions and methods and undertake research and
applications to enable people innovate solutions to problems in Nigeria and
Tech Bootcamp for Secondary School Students
Global Engineer Training
Problem Solving for Engineers Course
We will have 2 Centers that will Carter for the technological needs of the
Niger Delta and Agriculture in the Northern part of Nigeria. The centers
Niger Delta Innovative Tech Hub, Warri
There is a great need for technological innovation in the Niger Delta that
will meet and solve the needs of that region. We are setting up this hub as
a platform where engineers and scientists can meet to come up with
solutions to the problems in the Niger Delta.
Center for the Development of Agricultural Technology, Wukari
Agriculture in Nigeria uses old tools. To increase yield, there will be
need to create more leverage. The leverage should be able to reduce the
effort farmers put into farming while increasing their productivity. CDAT,
Wukari will be an agricultural technology research and development center.
It will have a demonstration farm where the technologies developed can be
Facts About EWB Nigeria Membership
EWB Nigeria membership is not for everyone.
It’s for people who can work alone and initiate projects to solve
problems for communities.
We are project-centric and solution-centric and not
meeting-centric. We meet to solve problems and not meet for the
sake of meeting and talking
Once you pay your membership fee, you have to go through the EWB
Nigeria Introductory membership course to regularize your
membership. The course is a practical one that requires you to
solve real life problem using designing thinking.
EWB Nigeria major goal is to make better engineering and science
education and practice in Nigeria.
Members can initiate projects in communities.
EWB Nigeria doesn’t provide funds for projects.
Volunteers on projects take care of their transportation,
accommodation and feeding except where a grant received took care
EWB Nigeria is not an organization for people who want to maintain
the status quo and are looking for where to belong.
EWB Nigeria is a place where you give. If you are not ready and
willing to give back to communities, we are sorry we are not the
place for you.
EWB Nigeria is looking for disruptors who want to use their engineering
knowledge and skills to make a difference in Nigeria. If you are one, then
download our membership form and pay your membership category.
