Engineers are creative problem-solvers.
Engineers solve all sorts of problems, and one of their most important tools is their own creativity.

 A damaged heart stretches its walls dangerously thin when the muscle expands, in an effort to increase pumping capacity. Engineers envision a gel-like “sleeve” that can surround it to prevent this expansion. After the heart is healed, the sleeve safely dissolves into the body.

 Cholera is a major health problem in African villages. Engineers devise a water filtration system that not only stops the spread of the disease but is cheap and easy to use, and can be implemented in a culturally sensitive manner.

The modern engineer must be able to synthesize a broad range of disciplinary knowledge while keeping the systemic nature of the problem within her view. As we take on the challenges facing us, it will be engineers and their creativity that

The College of Engineering was established by virtue of Board Resolution No. 26, s. 1966. In many respects the story of engineering is the story of civilization itself. Civilization has been described as the process whereby man strives to overcome the obstacles on his way and become master of his environment. Engineers are constantly at work seeking to understand the laws of the physical universe, to take advantage of the beneficial aspects of nature, and to convert or modify the adverse factors. While overcoming the materials obstacles in man’s path, the engineer also contribute to man’s moral and spiritual welfare by removing some of the causes of want and fear.

Professional engineers are finding new ways to control the forces of nature, raise our standard of living, and build our defenses. The technological developments of the future will come from young people hence, the need for qualified persons.

The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering as a 5 year degree course was sanctioned by Board Resolution No. 644, s. 1973 dated June 16, 1973 affecting the offering of the aforementioned degree course in the school year 1974-1975. Students have come different walks of life and gone with the needed training to cope up with the fast trend of technological advancement. Many have proven to be effective in the fields of civil engineering, some have been and are still efficient mentors of the various educational institutions while others have become successful managers and even contactors. In April 28, 1983, Board Resolution No. 20, s. 1983 made official the offering of Bachelor of Science in Sanitary Engineering, effective School Year 1983-1984. By virtue of the Board Resolution No. 24, s. 1994, Bachelor of Science in Geodetic Engineering was later included in the first offering. The institute gives these services and envisions to strive for more service areas engineering specialization.


Provide quality and relevant education through modernization, accreditation, consultation and academic linkages; enhance research and intensify extension and production through personnel enhancement; improve its production by offering professional and consultancy services, forming its graduate’s productive and efficient citizens in the community.


The College of Engineering was establish by virtue of Board Resolution No. 26, S. 1966 and was then known as the Institute of Engineering. The first curricular offering was Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, Bachelor of Science in Sanitary Engineering and Associate in Geodetic Engineering were added to the Course offering by virtue of Board Resolution No. 28 S. 1983.

In 1994, the Associate in Geodetic Engineering was phased out and by virtue of Board Resolution No. 24, S. 1994, the Bachelor of Science in Geodetic Engineering was added to the coarse offering of the college.

To produce globally competitive, self-reliant, creative, and service oriented engineers.

ObjectivesThe College aims to:

  • a) Develop professionally competent civil, geodetic, and sanitary engineers;
  • b) Equip graduates with adequate knowledge, skills and attitude to respond to the ever-changing needs of the industry;
  • c) Inculcate among students ethical values; and
  • d) Be self-reliant.
