The teaching of Engineering at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka started in October 1961 by a team of workers from the Netherlands University Foundation. The faculty consists of six (6) departments. They are:

Agricultural and Bioresources Engineering

Established in 1962, the UNN Department of Agricultural Engineering is the oldest in Nigeria. Started and developed by academic personnel from Michigan State University (M.S.U), the Department benefited from the best of the land grant philosophy of many of the bigger and better-known American Universities, a philosophy that found optimum expression in their Faculties of Agriculture. So, at the beginning under the Headship of Professor J.O Boyed, the Department together with the Department of Agricultural Mechanization was based in the Faculty of Agriculture for administrative purposes while, at the same time, it was based in the Faculty of Engineering for its academic regulation and administration. As a result of this arrangement, the Department was very well equipped as it had free use of direct responsibility for the maintenance and repair of all the agricultural machinery and equipment in the Farm Operations Unit of the Faculty of Agriculture. To facilitate the discharge of that responsibility the Department was provided with a very well-equipped Fabrication Workshop, a Carpentry/Farm Structures Workshop, and a Farm Power and Machinery Workshop in the Farm Operations Centre. Similarly, with the first two years of the five-year program being the same for all the Departments of the Faculty of Engineering, students of the Agricultural Engineering Department took the foundation engineering courses and the workshop technology courses in well-furnished mechanical engineering workshops, civil engineering workshops/laboratories, and electrical engineering workshops/laboratories.

Civil Engineering

The Department started in 1961/62, the Department offered four- and five-year programmes leading to the bachelor’s degree B.Sc in Civil Engineering. By the decision of the Faculty Board of Engineering and with the popular support of the students the Bachelor of Science degree was changed to the Bachelor of Engineering B.Eng degree in 1979/80 with the approval of the University Senate.

Electrical Engineering

The program includes both practical and theoretical courses. The student’s Practical Work Experience includes the second-year activity of extensive operation and use of the Faculty of Engineering machines and tools (to realize and/or design prototypes) as well as two long vacations and one semester of Industrial Work Experience in the third and fourth years of the programme. The workshop practice in the Faculty of Engineering workshops prepares the students for Industrial Work Experience (in skill acquisition in actual industrial practices).
The first and second years of the programme is also designed to make the students deepen and strengthen their basic knowledge in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Social Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, and Computer Programming. The broad-based knowledge in the above-named disciplines enhances the practice of Electrical Engineering in relation to these other disciplines.

Electronic Engineering

The Department of Electronic Engineering was created in 1981 by splitting the existing department of Electrical/Electronic Engineering into two distinct departments. The creation of the two departments had the approval of the NUC. The department of Electronic Engineering was created to harness the explosion of knowledge in the field of electronics to satisfy deep national needs for skilled engineers in the vital areas of telecommunication, control, instrumentation, digital, and computer engineering. The department produced the first batch of graduates in 1985.

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering includes the science and art of formulation, design, development, manufacturing, and control of systems and components for the conversion of Energy and materials into useful mechanical work. These may include both power-generating machines and machines that transform and consume this power, such as nuclear and fossil power plants, propulsion devices, engines, turbines, motors, control mechanisms, transportation systems (automobiles, trains, space vehicles, marine vehicles, etc.), refrigeration and air-conditioning systems, cryogenic systems, manufacturing machines and systems, materials handling and earth-moving devices. The field requires a basic knowledge of the mechanics of solids, fluids, machines, materials, machine design, heat power, thermodynamics, heat transfer, manufacturing processes, industrial engineering, management science, optimization, and systems analysis.

Metallurgical Material Engineering

The Department of Metallurgical & Materials Engineering, University of Nigeria, Nsukka was established at the 316th Senate Meeting of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka on the 1st day of February 2006. The field of Metallurgical & Materials Engineering involves the mastery of the science and engineering of metals, ceramics, and polymers to enable the graduate  to understand the behaviour of these materials in everyday applications. The programme, in addition to consolidating the fundamental aspects of metallurgical, ceramic, and polymer engineering exposes the graduates to cutting-edge engineering technologies in materials processing and development.


I am an enthusiastic, self-motivated, reliable, hard working and well organised professional person. I am a good listener and flexible individual who can learn new skills easily and execute them swiftly. I obtain my degrees at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka and Madanta Institute, India.
