Professor L.O. Kehinde Honorary Lecture

Over a long and distinguished career, Prof. Kehinde has taught, and inspired thousands of students and has successfully supervised about 10 Ph.D. students, dozens of other postgraduate students, and hundreds of undergraduates. As a researcher, Prof. Kehinde was one of the pioneers of interdisciplinary research between the Faculty of Technology and The College of Health Sciences, with his collaboration with the Department of Mental Health in the ’80s. He has authored and co-authored over 95 publications in reputable journals and conference proceedings, and holds three patents.

He has won multiple grants for the University, and most notably led the award-winning multi-year iLab research collaboration between Obafemi Awolowo University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has chaired many important committees at departmental, faculty, and university levels, and served at various times as the Head, Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering (1998-1991), the Vice-Dean (1990-1992) and Dean, Faculty of Technology (1998-2000), as well as the Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the University (2001-2005). He was also the Director of Information Technology and Communications Unit (INTECU). It is noteworthy that Prof. Kehinde is the longest-serving alumnus in the Faculty of Technology.

This special lecture is organized by the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering in conjunction with The Committee of Friends and Former Students of Professor L.O.
