About

The Faculty was conceived in 1984/85 session but the planning for its take-off did not commence until June 1985 when a meeting of some seasoned and experienced educationists and professionals in the field was held on the issue. This panel of experts reviewed the Faculty programmes in line with the aims of the University to develop courses in Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology to meet the nation’s planning objectives and manpower needs.  It was with this in mind that the programmes in Civil,  Electrical and Electronic and Mechanical Engineering were established. The Department of Computer Engineering was created in 2011 in addition to the already existing three departments. This was in line with the aims of the University to train students in Computer Engineering to meet the nation’s planning objectives, manpower needs, and global development especially in line with the global trends of innovations in Computer Engineering.

The first set of students was admitted in 1985/86 Session. The students took foundation courses with Science in the Faculty of Science. Hence the Faculty was pioneered by the Faculty of Science under the Deanship of Prof. B.D. Ako in 1985/86 academic session. However in 1986/87 academic session, Prof. (Engr.) V.A. Williams became the 1st Dean of the Faculty and he was assisted by Dr. O. Ogunlade, Dr. L.A. Balogun and other part time instructors, lecturers and workshop demonstrators from University of ife, Nigeria Machine Tools Company, Osogbo, Ondo State Polytechnic, Owo and Federal Polytechnic, Ado-Ekiti including the current Dean of the Faculty, Prof. (Engr). S.B. Adeyemo who sooner joined the University.

The Objectives and Mission Statement

The Engineering programmes are designed to meet the overall Faculty objectives and the following specific objectives:
(a)     To equip the graduate with adequate basic engineering principles that would enable them to cope with the challenges of a developing country like Nigeria;
(b)     To enable the graduate easily relate to every engineering discipline and clearly identify his interface with them;
(c)     To give the graduate the opportunity of being familiar with the different specialization in Engineering;
(d)     To give a broad sense instruction and training required for designing, manufacturing, installation and construction processes.
(e)     To enable the graduate diagnose problems in his immediate environment and prescribe engineering solutions;
(f)      To equip the graduate for further studies in any desired specialization;
(g)     To enable the graduate work with other colleagues on viable projects, this is to promote effective communication among collaborative engineering graduates; and
(h)     To encourage graduate to employ the modern computational aids in solving problems.

Civil Engineering

A Brief History of The Department
The Department emerged from the creation of the Faculty of Engineering in June 1985 in line with the aims of the University to develop courses in Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology to meet the nation’s planning objectives and manpower needs.  At inception, foundation students took foundation courses with Science in the Faculty of Science and had their practical demonstrations under instructors, lecturers and facilitators from other Universities and engineering centres of excellence.
General Services and Academic Programmes
The Head of Department is the organizational head, the chair of Departmental Board and Chief Examiner in all examinations. Departmental affairs are managed through the Committee system. The Department offers undergraduate courses leading to the award of B.Eng. in Civil Engineering for successful students that completed their 5 year course of studies in the Department.

Computer Engineering

The Department was created in 2011 in line with the aims of the University to train students in Computer Engineering to meet the nation’s planning objectives, manpower needs, and global development especially in line with the global trends of innovations in Computer Engineering. At inception which coincided with the merger of the University of Science and Technology Ifaki Ekiti and the University of Ado Ekiti into Ekiti State University Ado Ekiti; 100Level students moving to 200Level from former University of Science and Technology Ifaki Ekiti automatically became the pioneering students for the Department. Lecturers and facilities from existing Departments in Faculty of Engineering were used for the take-off of the Department.

Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Mechanical Engineering

The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in 1985 alongside with Civil and Electrical/Electronic Engineering Departments of the Faculty of Engineering with the aim of developing qualified manpower for our industrial needs. The Department of Mechanical Engineering started with 12 students which have now increased tremendously. The first two years of the Department’s programme are the same as the other Departments in the Faculty of Engineering. The Department graduated its first set of students in 1990 when all the eleven pioneering students finished successfully with four at Second Class (Upper Division) and six at Second Class (Lower Division) and one at the Third Class level.

Mechanical Engineering is that discipline of engineering that deals with analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is also concerned with power production from heat and other energy forms. Our programme of study at the Mechanical Engineering Department covers such areas such as Thermofluids, Energy and Heat Power, Materials Engineering, Machine Design, Production/Manufacturing, etc.
