Ekiti State University

History of The Faculty

The Faculty was conceived in 1984/85 academic 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 before approval was sought from Senate.  The aim of the University was to develop courses in Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology in line with the National Planning Objectives and Manpower needs.  It was with this in mind that the programmes in Civil Engineering, Electrical/Electronic Engineering and Mechanical Engineering were established. The first set of students were admitted in 1985/86 academic session. The students took foundation courses in Science with the Faculty of Science. In 2012, the Department of Computer Engineering was birthed to further cater for the yearnings and needs of the immediate environment and especially in response to our unfolding Information,  Communication and Technology (ICT) driven age. Furthermore, there are plans to establish the Departments of Agricultural Engineering and Mechatronics Engineering also in response to the needs of the immediate environment. The table below details the names of past deans and sub-deans to the present.
