All professors must deliver inaugural lectures, says UI Don.

A Professor of Computational Condensed Matter Physics, Professor Oluseyi E. Awe has stated that all professors should be encouraged to deliver inaugural lectures before retirement.

This, he said, would allow them to share their experiences, knowledge of a chosen area of research, and recommendations that could be of tremendous help to younger academics, the University and the nation at large.

According to Professor Awe, many professors were retiring from the services of the University without being inaugurated.

He advised the University, in light of the importance of inaugural lectures, to improve on the existing process of scheduling inaugural lectures such that a professor hardly leaves the University without presenting his/her inaugural lecture.

Professor Awe, said he had contributed immensely to his area of research. Such contribution involves throwing more thermodynamic light on the existing knowledge on 81 Liquid alloys, which paved the way for a better understanding of their industrial relevance.

He urged all senior staff of the University, academic and non- teaching, to give valedictory lectures to pass vital messages across-the-board for the sustenance and progress of the system. He urged the University to make such lectures mandatory.

The inaugural lecture was entitled “The Beauty of Liquid Alloys – An Odyssey of a Computational Condensed Matter Physicist.”

It was the 518th Inaugural lecture of the University of Ibadan delivered on behalf of the Faculty of Science.
