A Whole Different Idea of Engineering

With the right kinds of technology investments, Nigerian-born Michael Aboh M.S. ’23 can envision a brighter agricultural horizon for his homeland, which is losing rural youth to cities offering better-paying jobs. “We have fewer people going into agriculture,” Aboh says, “and this is going to be a problem in the near future.” 

Automation could increase the productivity of farmers, he says, particularly the smaller-scale farms. Agricultural robotics, for instance, would optimize farm crop productivity for Africa’s most populous country, the world’s largest producer of yams and cassavas, among other produce. “That’s what I want to tackle,” says Aboh.
