Engr. Nkechi Elizabeth Offia-Kalu

Lecturer II

B. Eng., M. Eng.


Nkechi Elizabeth Offia-Kalu (Nee Ojinmah) graduated from the famous Federal university of technology Owerri with honors degree in Polymer and Textile Engineering. After her graduation and youth service in 2009, she bags 2 certificate courses in HSE and thereafter joined TOPSAM oil and Gas Limited in Port-Harcourt where she worked as the company’s safety officer for few years. Later she enrolled and bagged a master of engineering degree in Polymer Science and Engineering in 2014. In 2019 she joined the great institution Federal university of Technology Owerri as an assistant lecturer where she serves currently as lecturer II. She is an active registered member of the council for regulation of Engineering in Nigeria, COREN. She has authored and co-authored publications in scientific journals. Her research interest spans from functional polymeric materials for energy applications, molecular simulations of polymeric models to nanotechnology. Nkechi believes that the greatest challenge confronting developing countries is the energy crisis and so she is passionate about finding real time solutions to the problem of energy in Africa. Currently she is a doctoral scholar in the thematic area of material science and engineering at African University of Science and Technology, Abuja Nigeria under the Regional Scholarship and Innovation fund, RSIF-a flagship of Partnership for skills in Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology, PASET. Her doctoral studies are focused on using molecular dynamics and DFT studies to understand the structure property relationship of polymer hydrogel electrolytes for Lithium ion batteries.
