He holds an Electrical and Electronics Engineering degree and a Master’s degree in Digital Communication Systems. Before joining AUN, he was a consultant for the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organization (CTO).

He has over 9 years of experience in academia and over 17 years working in industries, for the likes of NemeriX, Broadcom, Marconi, Mitel, and Coe Ltd. During this period, he has been involved with the design of GPS receivers for Satellite Navigation systems, VOIP, physical layer protocols including ATM and SDH, Photonic DWDM networks. At AUN, he was very instrumental in creating Executive Master Programs to bring extra income to AUN. He played a key role in the creation of the Graduate School and the School of Engineering, dealing with the accreditation body in Nigeria (NUC).

Also at AUN, He held many administrative positions including; Chair of Telecom & Wireless Department, Chair of Computer Science and Software Department, and Dean of the School of Graduate Studies. He has taught Telecommunication, Computer Science, Electrical & Electronics and Maths courses at the undergraduate level and Telecommunication and Computer Science courses at the graduate level. He has also developed courses and syllabi in the School of Graduate Studies, School of Information Technology and Computing, and School of Engineering at AUN. He has supervised various Masters and Ph. Ds dissertations and theses respectively. Dr. Nche has published several peer-reviewed journals and conferences. He works well with students, faculty, staff, and the management team. He is self-motivated, dedicated, and works well in a team situation.

Doctoral Thesis Title:

"Implementing the Orwell Protocol over an Optical Fibre Ring." (High-Speed Computer Networks)


Awards

  • Faculty of the year award in 2014
  • Certificate of Appreciation for the work done as an interim Dean, School of Graduate Studies from May 2015 to December 2017.
Providing capacity, improving coverage, and increasing the efficiency of the network, using Heterogeneous Network (HETNET) and Device to Device communications (D2D). He is also interested in bringing Broadband to rural areas to bridge the digital gap between the rural communities and the developed world, using TV White Space Technology (TVWS). To show how the emerging TVWS technology can provide new and improved opportunities for education, Healthcare, Commerce and Efficient delivery of government services for rural communities in Adamawa State, Nigeria
