DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

Mr. Edward Arkhurst Jnr (Lecturer)Acting Head of Department

MSc. Applied Process Control

The Mechanical Engineering Department runs programmes for the award of HND and BTech. At both HND and BTech levles, the Department offers options such as Production Engineering, Plant Engineering and Automobile Engineering. The programs are so arranged to promote the creative power of each student to cope with engineering problems they may encounter at work after graduation.

The objectives of the Department are: to develop creativity, clarity and effectiveness in technological communication; to develop skill in Management and Workshop Practice; and to equip students for careers in Design, Production and Maintenance.

PROGRAMMES FOCUS

Engineering is the science and profession of applying and developing power and natural resources in ways that are beneficial to man. Thus Mechanical Engineering applies basic scientific principles to the design, manufacture, operation and maintenance of mechanical devices such as machine tools, automobile and aircraft engineering, pumps, compressors, heating and cooling devices. Mechanical Engineering also deals with the efficient management of the human, material and natural resources which are required for human existence. This Polytechnic places emphasis on practical learning by using simulations to replace real working situations that are found in business, industry, government and non-governmental organizations. Team work and personal development are practical learning objectives.

The HND as well as the B-Tech Mechanical Engineering programs are intended to produce highly-skilled, practical-oriented manpower with appropriate theoretical orientation for positions of responsibility in the manufacture, design and plant maintenance sectors of the engineering industry.

Student may specialize in Manufacturing Technology, Production Engineering, Management, Jig and Tool Design, Plant Maintenance, Plant Engineering Management, Mechanical Technologies and Automotive Engineering Management.

At the completion of programme, the graduate shall be able to:

  • Prepare and read engineering working drawings
  • Design, manufacture and assemble components and engineering systems
  • Solve engineering problems by analysis and empirical methods including computer applications.
  • Operate, install, maintain, and service plant, machinery, tools, equipment among others.
  • Prepare and present engineering reports
  • Apply relevant social science principles to manage engineering organizations and maintenance cordial human relations.

PROJECTIONS

Plans are far advanced for the Department to run Master of Technology (M-Tech) in Mechanical Engineering as well as Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering.
