B.Eng. Computer Engineering Programme

About B.Eng. Computer Engineering

Elizade University was established in 2012 through due process of obtaining approval for the establishment of the University. After applying to the Federal Government of Nigeria through the National Universities Commission (NUC), the approval for the establishment of Elizade University was granted by the Federal Government of Nigeria on February 22, 2012. The approval was conveyed vide the Provisional License to operate as a Private University No. 46 dated February 28, 2012 issued by the National Universities Commission.

Following the approval of the Federal Government, the University started academic activities during the 2012/2013 academic session. The pioneer students of the university resumed on January 6, 2013. The Engineering Faculty at the Elizade University commenced in September, 2013 during the 2013/2014 academic session.
The Bachelor of Engineering programme in Computer Engineering took-off in the 2013/2014 academic session. As one of the pioneer departments in the Faculty of Engineering, the Department commenced academic activities at the beginning of 2013/2014 academic session.

Elizade University aims to attract the best and the brightest students in Nigeria and beyond. The main aim is to provide them with practical-oriented scientific, technological and arts education which shall make them self-reliant while preparing them for future leadership and success in their chosen careers in the highly competitive new knowledge society.

PO12 - Life Long Learning

Recognise the need for and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.


The underlying philosophy of the Computer Engineering programme revolves around the need to join the key players in the present revolution in the computing and digital world. The teaching and research are based on sound academic foundation as well as practical orientation that will be sufficient to make them employable in the industries. The philosophy of the programme in Computer programme is to produce graduate Engineers that combine sound theoretical background with practical skills to enable them take up challenging positions in the engineering industries, public service and the academia directly and also to reach a level of practical sufficiency that would enable them to be self-employed. This is in line with the University’s mission and vision “to be a globally competitive institution that produces entrepreneurial, innovative and ethical graduates” that possess “appropriate skills and knowledge for the development of the nation and global competitiveness”.

Aim and Objective


The Computer Engineering Programme Educational Objectives describe the expectations of our graduates after a few years of work experience by contributing to the society through modern technologies and practices. The objectives of the programme are to produce graduate Engineers; 

  1. Develop graduates who possess a strong foundation in computer engineering principles and techniques, enabling them to solve complex problems and contribute to technological advancements.
  2. Foster an entrepreneurial mindset among students, equipping them with the skills to identify opportunities, innovate, and transform ideas into successful ventures in the computer engineering industry.
  3. Cultivate a culture of research and innovation, encouraging students to engage in cutting-edge research and develop novel  solutions to address the evolving challenges of the modern world.
  4. Promote collaborative and ethical practices, instilling in students the ability to work effectively in multidisciplinary teams, communicate ideas clearly, and uphold the highest professional and ethical standards.
  5. Prepare graduates to be influential leaders in the field of computer engineering, by providing practical experiences, mentorship, and opportunities for professional growth, enabling them to make a significant impact on society and shape a better future through the power of computer engineering.
