I had the pleasure of presenting to a group of graduate engineering students at Morgan State University. The presentation presented was Systems of Systems Engineering. I felt this was important as the university has a systems engineering program but wanted to emphasis the larger picture. After presenting the university presented me with this certificate of appreciation. I can honestly say that every time I am at this university teaching I become more motivated to follow my passion of being in academia.

The American University of Nigeria opened its doors to its first students in 2005. Founded by the former vice president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, it is located in north-eastern Nigeria in Yola, the state capital of Adamawa state, the vice president’s home town. Having benefited from the U.S. system of instruction as a young man, Abubakar sought to make this style of education — emphasizing critical thinking, small classes, student participation, problem-solving, a US-style general education program, and an American-trained faculty — available to all qualified young people of Nigeria and, increasingly, to the rest of the world.
