The UNN Faculty of Engineering offers a five (5) year Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng) degree programme designed to give students a firm foundation in the discipline.
In the first two years of the programme, the study concentrates on the engineering sciences common to all engineering disciplines.
From the third year onwards, discipline specialization courses are introduced. This finally leads to students, in the final year of the programme, taking courses with an emphasis on their department discipline.
The following are the objectives of the UNN Engineering programme;
- To give undergraduate students a firm academic foundation in the basic principles of Engineering.
- To introduce Engineering students to recent developments in relevant areas of Engineering.
- To equip them to meet the challenges of professional engineering employment in Nigeria in particular and the world at large.
