Mechanical Engineering Programmes

  1. Degree Programme

The Department offers a five-year degree programme in Mechanical Engineering leading to the award of Bachelor of Engineering degree. The programme has been developed with NUC minimum academic requirements. The courses in the first two years are common to all departments in the faculty and practice, Computer programming, engineering drawing, etc. the remaining programme is designed to provide students with enough basic engineering principles in mechanics of materials, fluid mechanics, machine design, engineering management, automatic controls etc.


A nine-month industrial attachment is mandatory for all third and fourth year students of this department. In the final year, a project, together with appropriate combination of courses is offered with an opportunity to select from list of elective courses.


  1. Entry Requirement (B. ENG. PROGRAMME)

In addition to the Minimum University entry requirements (i.e. five credits at O/L obtained at not more than two sittings): candidates for admission by UME into the five-year programme must have obtained credits in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and English Language. Candidates seeking direct entry admission into the first year of the four-year programme must satisfy the conditions stated above and in addition obtain at least four subjects in one sitting in GCE A/L. the two subjects should be selected from the following: pure and applied mathematics. Pure mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering drawing.


Direct Entry

Candidates will also be admitted into the four year programme if they satisfy the UME admission requirements and in addition posses at least a lower pass in OND, HND, NCE(Technical) or any other equivalent or higher certificate passed at credit level.
