The Nigeria PATW was held at the weekend on Saturday 29 June 2013. The Delta State University played host providing the Institution's Electronic Library as Venue for the event. An excited group of engineering students were in attendance. Unfortunately not one of the 5 entrants from the University to the Competition made presentations as they were all recent graduates and called up to compulsory national service a few days to the event.

The local IET Committee are grateful for the support of Engr. Smith Otuagoma, HOD, Electrical Electronics Engineering who was University appointed fascilitator for the event.
