“We are committed to developing our Nigerian workforce and our collaboration with OTI-UNIPORT is one we are passionate about,” said Michael Hunt, FMC Technologies Nigerian Country Manager. “Developing the next generation of subsea engineers within Nigeria will play a key role in the country’s future within the oil and gas industry.”

Professor John U. Okoli, Director of OTI-UNIPORT, said: “This is a major milestone, not only for the university but also for the Nigerian oil and gas industry. We are delighted to officially celebrate the launch of this program and look forward to watching our students develop over the years.”
