Nigerians are associating brilliant dabs on the map of the world, breaking new grounds, setting new records and as Osatohanmwen Osemwengie will put it “inquiring about what doesn’t exist yet”

Dr. Osatohanmwen Osemwengie, a Nigerian from Edo state has made the nation proud in Texas, USA by setting a high pace for academicians to take after. He cleared out the country in the mid 80s and turn into a force to reckon with in Robotics Engineering.

“6 Masters degree, not bad. I was in the State of Ohio on Monday, December 12, 2016 for my Masters of Business Administration (MBA) graduation. This is my 6th master degree and will begin work on my 7th Master degree in January, 2017 and my 4th PhD degree at University of Texas at Dallas in September, 2017
You know the proverb “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” Well, for me, all work and my play is acquiring degrees. Learning is relaxing and takes my mind of job projects”

Dr. Osato served as the Administrator of the Columbus City School System from 1992 to 2011, where he coordinated staff and student recruitment. He’s also developed programs to increase staff and student retention. He taught for five years (1987- 1992) in the aforementioned school district.

In 2011, he founded the “world’s first tuition free, engineering degree-granting university,” Open Robotics University. The University, which was powered by Google+, with awards bachelor, masters and doctorate degrees in robotics engineering for free.

The university headquarters is in Ohio. Open Robotics University currently has students in 45 cities in 25 countries. It is unclear if the university still exists. Some claim, it went defunct in 2013.

HE IS ALSO A FAMILY MAN
In 2016, he visited his major US base, in Ohio, where he met with his family and shared how much he will miss them, when he returns to Florida.

“My greatest moment from my visit to Ohio for my graduation was spending some time with my children. I have not seen them in two years,” he wrote in a Facebook post.

“My daughter has been working in Japan for two years, and my son busy with College and now returning to graduate school. Sad to leave Ohio, again, I will be going to visit brothers in Texas for four days, before returning to my base in Jacksonville, Florida”

Even though he still hold on to his strong ties in Nigeria and may have visited the country in December, 2016, after his mother’s 85th birthday.

“My mom is celebrating her 85 years birthday today….. You are very special, mom! Happy Birthday! I am looking forward to celebrating Christmas and New Year with you in Nigeria this year” he wrote in a note to his mother.

In addition to these, Dr. Osemwengie was a facilitator for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation- sponsored Ohio Leadership for Integrating Technology Initiative (OLIT).

He trained elementary, middle, high school principals and assistant principals to use adaptive learning staff development activities which are designed to identify instructional approaches that emphasized integrating technology into the learning and teaching processes.

Having studied software engineering and management of information system at the graduate levels, he expertly trained to facilitate the integration of technology into teaching and learning process workshops and seminars, coached robotics and serve as software engineering mentors to robotics teams, 2008 selectee to present at the world robotics championships, sets Dr. Osemwengie apart from most educational administrator contemporaries.

He keeps a low profile though.
