- Civil Engineering
- Electrical and Electronics Engineering
- Mechanical/Production Engineering
The 1998/1999 Academic Session witnessed the establishment of the following Departments:
- Agricultural and Bio-Resource Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Petroleum Engineering
The 2011/2012 Academic Session also witnessed the establishment of the following Departments:
- Automobile Engineering
- Computer and Communications Engineering
- Mechatronics and Systems Engineering
Aims & Objectives
- To produce graduates with high academic standard couple with adequate practical experience; to meet challenges of 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.
To produce graduates with high academic standards and adequate practical schemes such that they are of immediate value to industry and the nation. Specific features include:
- 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 admission requirements, common to all students of the Faculty, are as follows:
Five-year Degree Programme (JME entry Candidates). Candidates must satisfy all University entry requirements including the required five credits in relevant papers all obtained at not more than two sittings. The qualifying subjects must include credit in English language, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry at the WASC/GCE ‘O’ Level or its equivalent.
Four-year Degree Programme (Direct Entry Candidates)
Direct entry candidates will normally enroll in the second year of the Programme. To qualify for direct entry, candidates must satisfy the WASC/GCE ‘O-level’ requirements in paragraph 1 above. In addition the qualifying subjects must include passes in Mathematics and Physics at GCE ‘A’ level, IJMB or its equivalent. For Chemical and Petroleum Engineering, an A-level pass in Chemistry is required.
The Faculty also recognizes the need for diploma holders to be given opportunity to improve themselves. Holders of National Diploma, ND, in the same discipline can be admitted into the 200level. Higher National Diploma, HND, holders in the same discipline can be admitted into 300Level. In any case, such candidates must also satisfy O-level requirements spelt out in part. 1 above and their diploma must be at minimum of lower credit.
