The College of Engineering commenced its programme in the 2002/2003 session. The College had been offering degree programmes in six major disciplines, namely:

  1. Chemical Engineering
  2.  Petroleum Engineering
  3. Civil Engineering
  4. Electrical/Electronics Engineering
  5. Computer Engineering
  6. Mechanical Engineering.                                                                                                          All the programmes are fully accredited by both NUC and COREN.


The general philosophy in line with the minimum academic standards set by the NUC, and COREN is to produce graduates with high academic standard with adequate practical background and of immediate value to industry and the nation in general; and be self-employable.  The programme has intervening Industrial-Training periods to enable the engineering graduates acquire the necessary skills to solve local problems.  Pursuant to the general philosophy, therefore, the programme has been designed to incorporate the following features:

(a)                Common courses at the 200 levels for all engineering students

(b)               Workshop practice and, laboratory work for all engineering students.

(c)                Interaction between students and professionals through regular seminars

(d)               Final year research project where the student works alone under an academic supervisor

(e)               Opportunity to have in-depth study of a specific area of the programme from a wide selection of optional courses.

(f)                 Adequate knowledge in engineering management and entrepreneurship


The general aim /goals and objectives of engineering training are expected to be in consonance with the realization of national desires with respect to industrial development and high technology attainment.  Consequently, the objectives of the engineering programmes are to:

(a)                develop the necessary skills, creative ability, attitudes and expertise consistent with engineering design, communication and construction of engineering works and projects;

(b)               adapt and improve on exogenous technology in order to enhance construction techniques and the proper study and use of local raw materials;
