The School of Engineering has been in existence from the inception of the University. Initially and for many years after, the school comprised of three programmes namely: Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. In 1998, three programmes were added to the existing programmes bringing the total programmes in the school of Engineering to six. Thereafter, three other programmes were added in 2011 bringing the total number of programmes to nine.

Philosophy and Objectives of the School

The general philosophy of the School of Engineering is to produce graduates with high academic standards and adequate practical background such that they are of immediate value to industry and the nation. All programmes are pragmatic in order to turn out engineers capable of solving local Nigerian problems in addition to global challenges that they might be confronted with. To achieve this, specific features of the programmes include:

  •   Common foundation years at 100 and 200 levels for all engineers
  •   Workshop practice, laboratory work and tutorials
  •   Design projects with bias towards local applications.
  •   Broad based engineering courses and interaction between students and professionals in industry and government.
  •   Project in the final year on which the student works independently under supervision
  •   Special skills and in depth study in a particular area of the program through optional courses or electives.
  •   Adequate knowledge in the areas of engineering management, economics and law.
  • The objectives of the school are:
  •   To produce graduates with high academic standard coupled with adequate practical experience, who are able to meet the challenges of a developing economy and sufficiently tackle common day-to-day engineering problems.
  •   To produce graduates with broad-based knowledge in general studies, management and humanities, all of which enhance their understanding, contribution and relevance to the society.
