Student’s Welfare

The Faculty does have a Staff/ Students Liason Committee, comprising Heads of Engineering Departments and student representatives from all the Departments, that meets frequently. During the meetings, students are given opportunity to air their views and make useful suggestions towards the smooth running of the programmes in the Faculty.

Student’s academic grievances are usually reported to the Head of Department for solution. Depending on the complaint, the HOD may or may not forward it to the Dean of Faculty for presentation to Faculty Board. The Department also operates a students counselling system, whereby students are assigned to advisers at the beginning of the programme. The advisor’s task is to discuss, guide and provide necessary academic assistance to students assigned to him.

Departmental Student Organisation

Students Organisation At the departmental level, we have the Nigerian Institution of Civil Engineers Students Affiliate (NICESA) which organizes seminars, subject clinics, picnics, and receptions that bring students and lecturers together in a relaxed set up. These forums have actually assisted in improving the quality of academic work and promotion of peaceful co-existence in the Faculty of Engineering. This body is officially registered with the University Authorities through the Students Affairs Directorate.

To improve their technical competence and exposure, NICESA, in the 2013, successful executed a pilot CAD training workshop, technical excursions to industries and important construction sites/projects with the Nigerian Society of Engineers and attended the National Engineering Conferences of the Nigeria Institution of Civil Engineers and the Nigerian Society of Engineers.

NICESA has continued to support and contribute to the development of the Department through their active participation in the activities and programmes of the Department. These include

  • Donation of a lap top computer and printer for departmental use by the 2012/2013 EXCO of NICESA.
