AFTER its launch on November 4 in Windhoek, the Namibian Society of Engineers (NASE) is hitting the ground running on issues relating to engineers, technicians and artisans from across the country.
NASE’s membership is currently standing at 60 after two months of existence, spanning a vast stretch of expertise across all fields of engineering, which includes professionals, trainees, graduates and students.
NASE is calling on engineers, technicians, artisans, students and aspiring engineers in grade schools all across Namibia to join the society and be part of the movement that advocates for their success and welfare in the field of engineering. It is also important to note that NASE has already attracted membership from enthusiastic professionals who are not only passionate about bringing about the change needed in the industry, but also volunteering their skills for community service.
The society will follow through with its laid-out plan, engage relevant bodies, including the Government and academic institutions, mobilise members in all the 14 regions and ensure that every set task is followed by action and implementation. NASE further calls upon all relevant stakeholders, signed members of NASE, and members of the general public to throw their support behind this noble cause as the society embarks upon a journey of supporting the professionals, volunteering for the communities and ensuring that, the voice of Namibian technical professionals is heard and taken seriously.
NASE also announced the commissioning of Engineers Without Borders Namibia (EWB-NA), which will be the social responsibility arm for Namibia’s technical community to volunteer to serve the communities, particularly in remote areas. EWB-NA has been endorsed by Engineers Without Borders South Africa (EWBSA) and together they will be collaborating and exchanging skills and ideas on better ways to deploy our expertise for community service all across the two countries.
In this way, NASE says it has set the stage for professionals to also become agents of change and meaningfully impact Namibian lives.
