Foreword by the Dean
This new prospectus for undergraduate programmes sets out in detail information on the structure of the College of Engineering and includes extracts from the University Regulations governing First Degree programmes.
From 2002/2003 Session, the College had been offering degree programmes in four major disciplines, namely:
- Chemical and Petroleum Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Electrical/Electronics and Computer Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
All the programmes are fully accredited by both NUC and COREN.
The new prospectus which has been reviewed according to NUC Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS) shall be of great value to students and staff of the College and other persons who may wish to obtain information on the academic programmes in all the six departments in the College of Engineering
The vision of the department is to become one of the best Mechanical Engineering Departments in any Nigerian University with national and international acclaim. A department where the advancement of engineering and technology is continuously dynamic. Its graduate will become very capable and environmental-friendly engineers who would be very relevant in the public and private sectors of the economy and rapid industrialization and development of Nigeria.
The departmental mission is to develop into a national resource that will continue to support the development of Nigeria, its economic diversification to make it responsive to the needs of government, industry and society. Thus, the department will provide:
- State-of-the-art technological and Engineering training that prepares the graduates for responsibilities of the workplace.
- To produce qualified and competent Mechanical Engineers in such areas of specialization as –metallurgy, fluid, mechanics of machine and Thermodynamics
- Engage in appropriate research activities, and, hence, produce the most sought-after engineers by all employers of labour, post graduate schools and research institutes.
- Establish industry-institution linkages for mutually beneficial relationships
- Strive to become a Centre of Excellence in Engineering and Technology in the West-African sub-region where expertise and facilities to accelerate the pace of industrial development can be provided.
OBJECTIVE OF PROGRAMME
The objective of this programme is in consonance with the realization of national needs and aspirations vis-à-vis industrial development and technological emancipation. The graduates must therefore be resourceful, creative, knowledgeable and able to perform the following:
- To design Mechanical Engineering projects and supervise their implementation.
- To design and implement components, machines, equipment and systems.
- To design and develop new products and production techniques in industries.
- To install and maintain complex engineering systems so that they can perform optimally in our environment.
- To be able to exercise original thought, have good professional judgment and be able to take responsibility for the direction of important tasks.
