[VIDEO]:UNIZIK AT IT AGAIN, AS THE DEPT OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING CONSTRUCTS A MADE IN NIGERIA MINI BUS




The Department of Mechanical Engineering of Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka, has always been duly represented in the Engineering world and this time they came out with a bang. They have done it bigger and better bringing their head far above water level. The group known as the AUTOZIK II, have done a MINI BUS popularly known as a Shuttle Bus, with locally sourced materials.

In an interview section with Unizik Mata Team, the group members which comprised 6 Male Engineers and A Female Engineer, they said that the project is a dream come through. One will wonder how the female engineer coped all through with the stress and rigor of this project, indeed she must be very outstanding for her to have pulled through to the end.  She is a female engineer with those unique qualities and above all, a rare gem.




The TEAM AUTOZIK comprises... 
EZEIGWE CHITOO CALLISTUS
OBINANI VICTOR CHIMDIKE
EZEANOLUE IFEANYI EMMANUEL
OKORO CHINAZA
OMINIGBO FIDELIS IGHO
NWOBODO NNAMDI MIRACLE
OGBU THADDEUS IKENNA

They were supervised by the Head of Department Dr. C.H Achebe, who indeed acted as a father and a mentor to them and deserves most of the credit, to have come this far.
The project lasted for about 5 months, from its commencement to its finishing.

The Autozik group made their design using CAD softwares, and all necessary simulation softwares for their analysis, putting the environment into critical consideration. The bus is said to have good seating positioning, better fuel conservation with reduced consumption, good passenger view and very good aesthetics. It was built suit the topography of our environment and the weather condition we have in this part of the world.
The bus was constructed from start to finish, inside the Mechanical workshop of Nnamdi Azikiwe University. The project is aimed at advancing the ergonomic standard of preexisting shuttle bus. The bus is said to be compared to other foreign buses and have got what it takes to be out there and to be very outstanding.


The project was applauded by many on the day defense, as it caused serious traffic congestion within the university and its environs.
 In interview section with one of the group members by name Ezeanolue Ifeanyi, he said “THE AUTOZIK TEAM indeed has gone through a whole lot before arriving at this platform. When we started, many tough we will not come this far, but today they have come to rejoice with us. We thank the almighty God who has brought us this far, we also thank our supervisor and the Head of Department Dr. C.H. Achebe, for his fatherly advice and support all through the cause of the project.

 The bus was also test driven in front of everybody and the university community at large, to prove to the world that it movable, durable and above all it is fully made in Naija (the video attest to this fact)
                        
A big thanks to the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka, for flying the flag of the University so high, through this their invention. It clear enough to note that, the Head of Department, Dr. C.H Achebe and his team of lecturers are doing a great job on their boys, thereby igniting the spirit and the zeal of invention and innovation in Nigeria and in the Engineering world at large.
Achebe is working…
A warm appreciation goes to the Dean of Faculty, Prof. Ihueze Toochukwu, who during his tenure has brought huge improvement to the Faculty of Engineering and has helped in rebranding the system.
Lauds and praises to the Head of the University Community, the Vice Chancellor prof. Joseph Ahaneku, who during his first year in office, has changed the face of the university, zeroed exam malpractice and improved the standard of learning within the university. His support for the faculty of Engineering has geared the zeal for invention and ingenuity in the faculty.


It is believed that this Team of 7 Engineers (TEAM AUTOZIK), having come this far with this kind of project within a very short time, making use of ordinary local equipment, if sponsored for further studies, can help rebrand our Automobile Industries and put Nigeria in the fore front of Auto Technology.

The shuttle bus is rated about #500,000 for its market value and can come down to as low as #350,000 if produced in mass quantity.


LONG LIVE TEAM AUTOZIK!
LONG LIVE NNAMDI AZIKIWE UNIVERSITY!!
LONG LIVE THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA!!!
