The African Centre of Excellence in collaboration with the Nigeria Computer Society (NCS) and Computer Professionals (Registration Council of Nigeria) CPN is proposing a one-day event with the theme: Rethinking Academia-Industry Engagement to take place on the 17th of January, 2018 at Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos.
