To produce the needed manpower for the various metallurgical and other allied industries nationwide, the Department has established general academic requirements which shall apply to all students working towards a first degree. These requirements reflect the Department's commitment to a broad-based quality education. The main components of undergraduate programme are:
a. Core curriculum in which students concentrate on their studies and receive B.Eng. degree.
b. Electives which permit students to take courses of their choice in consultation with their academic advisers (up to a maximum of 8 C.U. throughout the student's residency).
c. General studies courses which acquaint students with the foundation of general education in the sciences, social sciences and humanities as well as inculcating, in the undergraduate student, the essence of nationalism and morality.
d. The Department offers Bachelor of Engineering in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering i.e. B.Eng. (Metallurgical & Materials)
The Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (MMEN) programme emphasizes the structure, properties, processing and performance of materials and develop graduates who:
1. Have a broad- based knowledge on materials.
2. Can apply fundamental metallurgical and materials concepts to solve problems.
3. Can acquire written and oral communication skills as well as team work skills to be successful in their careers.
4. Understand the importance for self-acquisition of knowledge and continuing education.
5. Can employ their breadth of knowledge so that they are able to provide a range of solutions to a wide range of materials engineering problems and ultimately an optimal choice. .
The Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, in its quest to be a leading player, has set the following strategic goals:
- Imparting knowledge through high quality teaching/research.
- Development of world class infrastructure, laboratories/workshop and other vital equipment.
- Community services and Outreach.
- Resource mobilization, sustainability and wealth creation.
- Creating a Department of Corrosion Science and Engineering.
Good Virtues, Hardwork and Dedication.
