We welcome you to the Faculty of Engineering. The Faculty was one of the four Foundation Faculties at the inception of the Federal University Oye Ekiti. The Faculty made it a deliberate policy to attain and maintain a very high academic standard. It aims to position itself as a global and a national Faculty by maintaining high quality standard in terms of innovation and entrepreneurial education. The Faculty comprises of seven Departments that are invariable relevant to nation building and constitute a major part of the science and technology world. Presently the departments in the faculty which offer 5-year B.Eng. degree programmes are:
- Department of Agricultural and Bio-resources Engineering
- Department of Civil Engineering
- Department of Computer Engineering
- Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
- Department of Materials and metallurgical Engineering
- Department of Mechanical Engineering
- Department of Mechatronic Engineering
The Dean of the Faculty exercises general superintendence over the academic and administrative affairs of the Faculty. The Deputy Dean assists him in his duties. Each department has a Head of Department who exercises general superintendence over the academic and administrative affairs of the departments. A Faculty Officer who is also responsible to the Registrar of the University assists the Dean in the administrative running of the Faculty.
The Faculty Board is the highest decision-making body of the Faculty with every academic staff in the Faculty as member. The Senate of the University approves membership of the Faculty Board.
General Philosophy, Aim/Objective and Mandate
The primary philosophy that guides the training of students is the production of skilled manpower that is adequately furnished with the comprehensive information required for engaging in engineering and technology in an environment characterized by deficit technical manpower and underutilized population in ICT. Such professional manpower has to be produced in an atmosphere with the widest possible human and material resources, through the adoption of effective techniques of instruction and exposure to the actual practice of engineering and technology. Consequently, there are presently opportunities for formal training at the undergraduate level for the acquisition of basic degrees in engineering and technology.
These training programmes are mounted through classroom instructions, laboratory practical, field demonstration and workshop practices. Deriving from the foregoing philosophy and the major objectives, among others are:
- To assist in the attainment of self-sufficiency in engineering and technology.
- To contribute to the achievement of marked increase in the raw materials to support the growth of our several industries.
- To enhance with emphasis on relevant, appropriate and manageable technological machines for accelerated economic growth.
The training of engineering in both engineering and technology is to:
- Train students to be creative, innovative and seek self-employment.
- Inculcate into our engineering and technology graduates an entrepreneurial culture, good communication skills, computer literacy, problem solving, lifelong learning and subject specific skills.
- Ensure a thorough and reliable training which will assure our graduates employment opportunities anywhere in the world.
TYPES OF TRAINING
In order to obtain the ideal manpower required that will lead to the full realization of the tasks and objectives outlined earlier, the following types of training are pursued:
- Lectures on courses which have been prescribed for each degree programme.
- Tutorials which are arranged to complement the formal lectures which will enhance better understanding of the courses.
- Seminars on selected topics to be delivered by invited or internal speakers.
- Comprehensive practical work in the various laboratories and related industrial, educational and research institutions within and outside the university and all such facilities that are deemed necessary for each degree programme.
Admission Requirements into the Degree Programmes
Requirement for admission into programmes of the Faculty are guided by the University policy on admission, the principles which are clearly spelt out in the University Handbook and website and published in the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Brochure. This is subject to review at short notice. Admission into the programmes of the Faculty can be through Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), Pre-Degree of the University and Direct Entry.
UTME: Basically, to qualify for admission into the degree programme of the Faculty, credit level passes in five subjects including English language, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and any other science subject at the Senior Secondary School Certificate or its equivalent in not more than two sittings and an acceptable pass in the unified Tertiary Matriculation (UTME) into 100level
PRE-DEGREE: To be qualified for placement into the degree programme, registered students of the University’s Pre-Degree programme are expected to meet the following conditions: Five credits at SSCE (or its equivalent) including English Language, mathematics, Physics and Chemistry with one other science subject and UTME Subjects of English, Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics.
