Faculty of Engineering
The Faculty of Engineering in Ajayi Crowther University projects to become one of the leading engineering faculties globally in the nearest future, by producing engineering graduates that are vast in knowledge and well-grounded in the principles and practice of science and engineering deployable in sustaining existing engineering infrastructures and in the development of new ones for the benefits of the citizenry. The Faculty also projects to constructively contribute to the advancement and extension of the frontier of knowledge in science and engineering through meaningful and purposeful driven research and practical application of relevant skills and competencies in industries and allied establishments.
Engineering is in some ways a hybrid between Arts and Science. When seamlessly adopted and implemented with a vision and clearly defined goals and purposes, it should culminate in the improvement of infrastructures and the economy of a nation and the enhancement of the quality of life of the citizenry.
Hence, the Faculty of Engineering in Ajayi Crowther University should be slightly, if not wholly different, from the existing ones in the country. Consequently, the faculty has purpose-driven functions such as, but not limited to:
- Ensuring that individuals with flare and enthusiasm for Engineering are properly encouraged to have an interest in, and the capacity for the application of engineering principles for infrastructural development.
- Ensuring that the students of the faculty imbibe the culture of continual learning, a premise for maintaining sustainable competencies in solving new and emerging problems and challenges in engineering practice.
Understandably, apart from the critical emphasis placed on the applications of engineering methods and requisite training, students should acquire the habits and culture of industry and allied institutions in terms of orderliness, ethics, thoroughness, doggedness, constituency etc. In addition, the students in the course of their degree programmes are given the liberty to exercise/develop their inherent abilities for creativity, imagination, innovation, and sound judgement.
Each degree programme provides requisite elements of engineering education, as well as the discipline of professional training, and a sense of the art of engineering as distinct from its sciences in addition to the Students Industrial Works Experience (SIWES).
All programmes have a social and humanistic component that gives the student adequate knowledge of social and human relationships, duties of citizenry, and appreciation of cultures.
The Faculty has four departments: Computer Engineering, Electrical/Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Civil Engineering.
The Department of Electrical/Electronics will be awarding the degree of Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) in Electrical/Electronics Engineering with the following options:
- Electrical Power Systems Engineering
- Electronics and Communication Engineering
- Instrumentation and Control Engineering
The Computer Engineering Department offers a Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) degree in Computer Engineering. The Mechanical Engineering Department offers a Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) degree in Mechanical Engineering. The Civil Engineering Department offers a Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) degree in Civil Engineering.
