Faculty of ENGINEERING
   
Year Established : 1964/65
Dean : Professor O. A. Fakinlede
Sub Dean : Dr. M.A. Bodude
Faculty Officer : Mrs. C.T.O. Oloyede
Description :

By virtue of its large population and rapidly developing industrial activities. Lagos offers a favourable setting for a faculty of engineering in a university. This fact was highlighted by the report of Ashby Commission in 1959 for the establishment of University of Lagos which considered the case in its report. Consequently, the decision to establish a Faculty of Engineering at the University of Lagos was based on the fact that Lagos, being the largest centre of engineering activities in Nigeria, would be an ideal training centre for engineers. The Faculty of Engineering of the University of Lagos has as it’s objective “to produce graduates who will be well – qualified to operate and to develop the public services, to initiate and carry out engineering designs, to engage in industrial management and to pursue development and research”. The Faculty of Engineering was established in the 1964/65 academic year with three departments namely Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. A significant development arising from the recognition of the crucial role of mathematical and related analytical techniques in the development and application of modern engineering systems was the establishment, in 1973, of a Sub – Department of “Engineering Analysis”. The Sub – Department constituted the core group of hybrid mathematicians and professional engineers who provided academic leadership in various areas of Engineering Analysis. It was later to become the Department of Systems Engineering. Later in 1973, two other departments, Chemical Engineering and Surveying, were established. As of now, the Faculty offers undergraduate courses leading to the award of B.Sc. degree in Chemical, Civil, Electrical Electronics, Mechanical, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, as well as Surveying and Geoinformatics. As a result of the nature of Nigeria as a developing country, our graduates are provided with a wider range of general engineering education than is customary in long – established industrial communities.. At the end of their training, our graduates are to be well versed in theory and practice and to be capable of taking on full professional responsibilities shortly after qualification.

At the end of their training, our graduates are to be well versed in theory and practice and to be capable of taking on full professional responsibilities shortly after qualification. At its inception in 1964, the Faculty had a three – year post A-level degree programme. The curriculum underwent a major restructuring in 1976 when a four-year programme was introduced to replace the erstwhile 3 year programme, while incorporating a compulsory 9-month period of supervised industrial training (split into two separate periods of 3 months and 6 months) into the programme. Beginning from the 1982/83 session, the Faculty switched over to the present 5-year programme characterized by the Unit Course System. The programme became more intensive, courses are assessed continuously and it is now possible to closely monitor students’ performance since subject materials are taught in smaller doses and examined in greater depth. All the programmes in the Faculty are accredited by Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN). The Surveying undergraduate programmes, as well as the postgraduate programmes are also accredited by the Surveyors Council of Nigeria (SURCON). Total undergraduate enrolment grew from 283 in the 1975/76 session to 1609 in the 1995/96 session. Within the same period, postgraduate programmes were established and strengthened.
