Automotive Engineering

Programme Duration : 5 years


Dear students (prospective, fresh and returning), parents, colleagues and staff, welcome to Automotive Engineering website. The Automotive Engineering discipline of Elizade University, was established along side Mechanical and Production Engineering in September, 2013. It became a stand-alone department in the year 2018, although it is a new department in which the students are exposed to our well equipped laboratories which include laboratories like Physics, Chemistry, Personal Computer, Material Testing and Stress Analysis, Heat Transfer, Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics and Machine Shop. The department was ranked one of the best in the Faculty of Engineering during the 2016 National University Commissions (NUC) visit to the University. However, the department has risen steadily to the top and well known for its professionalism in educating and training talents and developing technologies in the automotive engineering field of study. Graduates of the department can find employment in automotive industry and sub-industry on product development, production, quality control, purchasing, post-purchasing and marketing.


Objectives
The objectives of the Automotive Engineering Department is to prepare engineering candidates for various branches of this industry with an improved self-confidence and individual initiative. Students are educated to have scientific systematic approach in solving engineering problems, sound engineering base, life-long learning habits and research abilities. In addition, the graduates of the Department of Automotive Engineering will have: 1)A strong foundation in engineering areas relevant to current industry needs to allow them to successfully compete for demanding and high quality jobs. 2)An ability to apply design procedures as required by the discipline which will allow them to produce resourceful and innovative engineering solutions. 3)An ability to communicate effectively and to act with social, ethical, and professional responsibility to fulfill their commitment inside and outside the engineering profession. 4)An ability to use computers as a tool for analysis, design, simulation, and control. 5)Strong laboratory skills that will allow them to design and conduct experiments with systems and instruments of various complexity in the field. 6)An understanding of a life-long learning and critical thinking required for entrepreneurship, competitiveness, leadership, and adaptation to new challenges. 7)An understanding of social, business, industrial, and human aspects as a complement to their engineering background.


Philosophy
To perform research studies and to educate young engineering candidate equipped with technical “know-how”, creative thinking and being able to try and research new technologies to achieve required goal.


Admission Requirements
Admission into the Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng), Automotive 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 (SSSCE) 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 Automotive 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
