History of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering

The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering was conceived in 1984/85 session. The first set of students was admitted in 1985/86 session. From the take-off point, the Department progressed under successive leadership of Prof. V. A. Williams (1986-1987), Dr. L. A. Balogun (1987-1988), Dr. A. Esan (1988-1992), Prof. V. A. Williams (1992-1994), Prof S. I.A. Ojo (1994-1995), Mr A.A. Adegbemile (1995-1998), Dr. A.C.T. Briggs (1998-2001), Mr O. O. Fagbohun  (2001-2004), Mr A.A. Adegbemile (2004-2006), Mr A.O. Ajibulu (2006-2007), Prof I.E Owolabi (2007-2011), Engr. D.L. Atandare (2011-2012), Engr A. A. Adegbemile (2012-2013), Dr. V.S.A. Adeloye (2013–2014), Dr. O.O. Fagbohun (2014-2016) Dr. I. B. Oluwafemi (2016-2018), Dr. P.K. Olulope (2018-2019), Dr (Mrs) O.J. Femi-Jemilohun (2019-2021), Dr O. Adetan (2021-2023), and Dr E. T. Fasina (2023till Date)


Objectives of the Department

  1. Offer training in basic engineering science and electronic engineering theory and practice;
  2. To provide in-depth training in the following areas of the discipline: electrical power principles and systems, communications principles and systems, control and computers, electrical machinery;
  3. During the course of training, to attach students to various industries outside the University for a Period Not less than 12 months, to enable them experience industrial practices and management in diverse areas of the profession, and relate their experiences to the theoretical aspects of their programmes. This Students’ Industrial Work Experience (SIWES) Programme is to be supervised by the lecturers during the period of attachment, and reports submitted by students at the end of the Programme.
  4. At the final year of the programmes, the student is to undertake independent project, usually of the laboratory-based hands-on design and construction of practical engineering devices / equipment or computer-aided investigation of some fundamental concepts, on which the student writes a technical report in standard and acceptable format. Thereafter, the student must make oral presentation and defense of the project for proper grading. This forms an important component of the degree of B. Eng. awarded by the university.
  5. To encourage participation of students in extra­curricular professional activities such as the Nigerian Universities Engineering Students Association (NUESA), (IEEE), etc., as a prelude to their future involvement in the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) activities upon graduation.

Our Philosophy

The philosophy of the department is in conformity with the overall philosophy of the university, in that, being basically a “developmental” university, the training of the students is such as to produce graduates that possess sound theoretical and practical skills that would make them self-reliant, confident and competent to contribute their quota to the socio-economic and technological development of the nation. Graduates of the department are expected to set their goals in life to be self-employed and employers of labour rather than employees. They must be capable of being abreast of the global changes in technology in the field of electrical/electronic engineering and allied fields, by pursuing self-improvement programmes. As the world is currently undergoing “knowledge-based” industrial revolution in all sectors of the economy, graduates of the department are equipped to excel in the areas of application of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and computer technology to the solution of developmental problems relating to electrical/electronic engineering practice.

Mission statement of the Department:

To offer high quality undergraduate and postgraduate programme in Electrical and Electronic Engineering and carry out research that will permit our students to match up with international standard, thereby attaining scientific revolution in our world.

General services and academic programmes

The academic programmes and institutional activities of the Department are facilitated through tutorials, and the laboratories for the award of Bachelor and Postgraduate degrees in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The running and management of the Department depend on the following organs and administrative structure:

  1. The Head of Department and Chairman of Departmental Board.
  2. The Departmental Board consists of the Head of Department as Chairman, one representative from each of the other Departments in the Faculty and all Lecturers of the Department.

The Department also sets up various committees to assist the Head of Department; such as the Academic Staff Review, Non-Teaching Staff Review, Admission Matters, Examination Matters, Research Fund Management, Journal and Handbook Publication, Departmental Week and Seminars and other statutory and special matters
