"Ahmadu Bello University shall be a world-class university comparable to any other, engaged in imparting contemporary knowledge, using high quality facilities and multi-disciplinary approaches, to men and women of all races, as well as generating new ideas and intellectual practices relevant to the needs of its immediate community, Nigeria and the world at large."
Hi, I am Engr (Dr) Umma Abdullahi, Senior Research Fellow specialising in Manufacturing and Materials Engineering at the Centre for Energy Research & Training (CERT).
I am someone who is passionate about imparting knowledge to others by teaching; that is why apart from my duties as a Senior Research Fellow here at CERT, I am also actively contributing to teaching and research as a Lecturer at the Department of Mechanical Engineering as well as the Department of Metallurgical Engineering. I always want to serve as a role model to young women engineers and scientists in such a way that can enable them gain and sustain confidence to venture into the engineering profession. Truly, it is a male-dominated profession but we are also making remarkable impact as women and I want young girls to take up this challenge and join us at ABU.
Teaching kids to count is fine, but teaching them what counts is best.
