In the rapidly evolving landscape of technology, computer engineering stands as a cornerstone, driving innovation and progress. In Nigeria, the pursuit of a National Diploma in Computer Engineering offers students the opportunity to become pioneers in this dynamic field. This comprehensive program equips students with the skills and knowledge needed to navigate the ever-changing world of computing, ensuring they are well-prepared to make significant contributions to the tech industry.

HOD’s address

Computer engineering is a discipline that integrates quite a few fields of electrical engineering and computer science required to advance computer hardware and software. Computer engineers normally have coaching in digital/electronic engineering (or electrical engineering), software program design, and hardware–software integration alternatively of solely software program engineering or digital engineering. Computer engineers get involved in many hardware and software program form of computing, from the microcontrollers, microprocessors, non-public computers, and supercomputers, to circuit design. This area of engineering no longer solely focuses on how computer system themselves work, however additionally how they combine into the large picture.

Job opportunities in COMPUTER ENGINEERING

Computer Engineering is a dynamic professional field that offers different career directions in hardware engineering (e.g. microprocessors) and software program development. The demand for computer engineers is high in this information age hence, at the profession level, there are two predominant specialties: hardware and software program engineering. Hardware engineers use their abilities on pc system and components, designing microprocessors, circuit boards, routers and different embedded devices. Software engineers create, check and debug applications and functions that run on computers, mobile devices and more. Some jobs you can do as a computer engineering graduate include:

  1. Software Engineer
  2. Software Tester
  3. Project Manager
  4. Application Developer
  5. Software Developer
  6. Hardware Engineer
  7. Microprocessor Engineer
  8. High School Teacher
  9. Product Engineer
  10. Product Designer
Course Requirements

To embark on the journey toward a National Diploma in Computer Engineering, prospective students typically need to fulfill certain prerequisites. These include:

  1. Entry Requirements: At least five relevant passes at credit level in the West African Examination Council (WAEC), General Certificate of Education (GCE), Senior Secondary School Certificate (SSCE) or National Examinations Council (NECO) 'O' Levels or their equivalent including English Language, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and one other subject from Metal or Wood work, Technical Drawing, Basic Electronics, Basic Electricity, Economics, Commerce, Statistics, Further Mathematics, Computer Studies, Geography and Agricultural Science/Biology, obtained at not more than two sitting.
  2. NBTE recognized pre-National Diploma Education: Credit passes in an NBTE recognised preliminary ND course offered in a Polytechnics or similar post-secondary technical institution (as stated in the NBTE brochure).
  3. JAMB UTME: Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (JAMB UTME) scores will be used as part of the selection process for (FULL-TIME) candidates (as stated in the UTME brochure).
