WELCOME TO THE HOME PAGE OF DEPARTMENT ELECTRICAL/ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING,FUTA

 

You are welcome to the department of Electrical/Electronics Engineering, Federal University of Technology, Akure, Nigeria.

The department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering was established in September, 1988 as one of the constituent units of the then new School of Engineering and Engineering Technology. Since inception the department has offered courses leading to the award of Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng), Masters of Engineering (M.Eng), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) degrees in various fields of Electrical and Electronics Engineering.

 

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMME

 

Programme Title

 

Four/Five-year Undergraduate programme: Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng).

 

Degree Option

 

Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical and Electronics Engineering.

 

Programme Philosophy

 

The Undergraduate programme is designed to produce graduates that can be readily absorbed into several areas of the rapidly developing fields of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. Students are exposed to intense programme of basic and applied courses, experimentation, projects and industrial training. These are designed to enable them satisfy the manpower needs in the public and industrial sectors of the economy.

The programme involves research and training in the following areas: Computer, Control and Instrumentation Engineering; Communication and Electronics; Electric Power Systems and Electric Machine. The thrust is to emphasize aspects of study that are relevant to articulated national development objectives and those that enhance the relevance of the institution to the society. At the end of the programme, the products will be suitable for employment in all relevant public and private enterprises.

 

Programme Objectives

 

The objectives of the programme are to:

(a)                give students basic knowledge in Electrical and Electronics Engineering

(b)               provide sufficient depth of knowledge to enable promising graduates of the Department

                   pursue postgraduate programmes in various fields in the Electrical and Electronics

                   Engineering or related disciplines; and

(c)                prepare graduates for employment in the industry (public and private) in the areas of

                    Electric Power, Electronics, Communications, and Computer Engineering.

 

Admission Requirements

(a)        UME Admission

            Admission to 100 level is through the UTME of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board. To be eligible for admission, candidates must have the GCE (OL) or WASSCE or NECO or equivalent with at least five credit passes in subjects which must include English Language, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry at NOT more than two (2) sittings.

UTME Subjects: English language, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics.

(b)        Direct Entry Admission

            In addition to the requirements specified in (a) above, candidates seeking admission to the 200 level must possess:

(i)                 ND with a minimum of Upper Credit level or its equivalent in Electrical and Electronics Engineering or related discipline, OR

(ii)               Good passes at the Advanced Level of General Certificate of Education or its equivalent in Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics.

 

Programme Duration

 

The normal duration of the programme is five academic sessions for students admitted to 100 level through UTME and four academic sessions for those admitted into 200 level by Direct Entry. Students may take longer than the normal duration to complete the requirements for graduation but will not be allowed to exceed fifteen semesters for candidates admitted through UTME and twelve semesters for candidates admitted through Direct Entry.

 

Graduation Requirements

 

To be eligible for a B.Eng degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering of The federal University of Technology, Akure, a candidate must:

(a)                pass all prescribed courses, School and University required courses as well as electives; and

(b)               complete successfully a minimum of 205 units for candidates admitted through UTME and 162 units for candidates admitted through Direct Entry.

(c)                Complete successfully  all prescribed industrial attachments, projects and seminars.

 

Students admitted by Direct entry must audit and pass GNS 101, GNS 102 and GNS 102; MEE101 and MEE 102.

 

General Administration of the Discipline

The present students’ population is about 500. Presently the staff strength stands at 34, comprising of 2 Professors,1 Senior Lecturer,8 Lecturers I,4 Lecturer II,1 Assistant Lecturer,2 Research Assistants, 4 Teaching Assistants, 8 Technologists,1 Technical Officer, 2 Laboratory Assistants and 1 Administrative staff.

 

Administration in General

 

The Head of Department (HOD), who is responsible for the overall administration of the department is appointed by the Vice-Chancellor  of the University in each instance for a fixed period of time.

 

Personnel Administration

 

The HOD assigns departments duties (academics and non-academics) to all Senior and Junior Staffs. Within the department there are three sections; Technical, Administrative and Academic. The most senior technical staff, the secretary and the HOD directs the operations of these three sections respectively. The most senior technologist heads each laboratory; he is responsible through the academic staff in charge of the laboratory to the HOD for the operation and organization of the laboratory.
