Abstract A healthy and effective R26D in engineering will guarantee large strong diversified sustainable and competitive economy that will effectively harness the talents and energies of its people and responsibly exploits its natural endowments for a high standard of living and quality of life. This work discusses applied fundamental descriptive analytical qualitative quantitative conceptual and empirical research as various categories of research and takes a look at the relevance and the role R26D in engineering plays in national economic growth. It considers tertiary institutions specialised research institutions and industries as the primary areas where R26D activities take place and pointed out inadequate funding governments insensitivity and lack of political will and inadequate R26D human capacity as the factors that have bedevilled R26D in Nigeria with consequence of low source of new product and processes improved products and source of new market. The paper went further to discuss capacity building in reverse engineering emerging technologies in manufacturing R26D personnel research facility and pro R26D government policies and concluded that the nations future global competitiveness depends on R26D in engineering.
