B.Eng (Mechanical Engineering)
Programme Duration : 5 years
Mechanical Engineering is a discipline that allows students acquire skills in design, acquisition and application of engineering principles in designing, analyzing and manufacturing processes and systems. Here, students are trained for the award of B. Eng. Degree.
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. On completion of the programme, Mechanical engineering graduates will be able to practice in the following sectors: manufacturing, automotive, automobile, aerospace, biomedical, computers and electronics, construction, sports, railway, oil and gas, energy, power, environmental control, robotics etc.
The objectives of the programme are to produce graduate Engineers;
(i) with broad based knowledge of Mechanical Engineering, and in-depth knowledge of its specialties (options selected by the student);
(ii) that can apply scientific principles to the design and maintenance of Mechanical devices; (iii) that are socially, morally and legally responsible;
(iv) with good understanding of economics, management and marketing principles that are essential for the automotive industry;
(v) who are creative and innovative, and can readily develop their entrepreneurship skills and technical competence to be self-employed in consultancy, manufacturing or service industry; and
(vi) that are sufficiently practical oriented to be self-employed
The philosophy of the programme is to produce graduate Engineers that combine sound theoretical background with practical skills to enable them take up challenging positions in the mechanical, automotive and manufacturing industries, public service and the academia directly and also to reach a level of practical sufficiency that would enable them to be self-employed.
Admission into the Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng), Mechanical Engineering programme is either through Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) into 100 level or direct entry into 200 level:
(a) University Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) Admission to 100 level is through Joint Matriculation Examination Board (JAMB) in English Language, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. To be eligible for admission, candidates must have the Ordinary level of General Certificate of Education (GCE) or Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSCE) with at least five credit passes including Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and English Language at NOT more than two (2) sittings. The process is made responsive to directives from NUC through the Senate of the University.
(b) Direct Entry Admission In addition to the requirements specified above in (a), candidates seeking admission to 200 level must possess i. ND at Upper Credit Level or equivalent in Mechanical Engineering or related discipline from recognized institutions, or ii. Good passes at the General Certificate of Education (Advanced Level) or its equivalent in Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics.
