The Mechanical Engineering Programme is designed to reflect a functional philosophy of education. While seeking to achieve academic excellence and promote the furtherance of knowledge, the Mechanical Engineering programme also seeks to aid ¼ the acquisition of appropriate skills, abilities and competence, both mental and physical as equipment for the individual to live in and contribute to the development of the society.
The programme is therefore committed to the production of qualified and competent technicians who will be able to face the challenges concomitant with the aspiration of the country to be technological developed, and the technicians to be self-reliant after graduation.
OBJECTIVES OF THE DEPARTMENT
The programme aims at producing mechanical engineering technicians for the nation’s industries, construction firms, public utilities and services. The diplomat should be able to; interpret and prepare engineering drawings of mechanical equipment, their components and systems, carry out machining and fabrication operations, produce machine components and assemble, operate, maintain and service mechanical equipment, prepare appropriate engineering report, carry out plant installation and maintenance, apply management principles in organizing supervisory groups and in the arrangement of sequence of activities, acquire and display basic entrepreneur skills and apply adequate Information Technology (IT) skills.
Available Options and Areas of Specialization
Based on core competences of available manpower, the following areas are available for students to choose and specialize in. These include:
- Carpentry, Upholstery and Joinery
