Electrical and electronic engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. It is a broad and dynamic field that plays a crucial role in today's modern technology-driven world.

HOD’s address

The overarching philosophy of the department is to develop national capacity in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, with the goal of transforming the country from a third world and developing nation into an advanced and developed nation. This transformation is envisioned through the development of highly skilled human capital in the field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. Over the years, our great institute has produced numerous graduates. They’ve found employment in various sectors in Nigeria and abroad. Many of them have achieved significant milestones in their respective fields, particularly in Power Systems, Machines, Control, Telecommunication, Oil and Gas, Banking and Finance, Computer, and Manufacturing Industries. Some graduates have also pursued careers in academia. Overall, the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering aims to provide a robust education and training to its students, equipping them with the necessary skills and knowledge to contribute to the advancement of the field and the development of the nation.


Electrical engineers design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacture of electrical equipment, such as electric motors, radar and navigation systems, communications systems, or power generation equipment. Electrical engineers also design the electrical systems of automobiles and aircraft. Some jobs you can do as an electrical/electronic engineering graduate include:

  1. Acoustic consultant
  2. Aerospace engineer
  3. Broadcast engineer
  4. CAD technician
  5. Control and instrumentation engineer
  6. Design engineer
  7. Electrical engineer
  8. Electronics engineer
  9. Nuclear engineer
  10. Sound engineer
  11. Special effects technician
Course Requirements

To embark on the journey toward a National Diploma in Electrical/Electronic 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, Physics and Mathematics, and any TWO other science subjects, obtained at not more than two sitting.
  2. The National Technician Certificate (NTC): The National Technician Certificate (NTC) in electrical trade with credit passes in Mathematics, Physics and ONE other subject. Also a credit pass in English Language is mandatory.
  3. NBTE recognized pre-National Diploma Education: FOUR redit passes in an NBTE recognised preliminary ND course offered in a Polytechnics or similar post-secondary technical institution. The credit passes must include Mathematics, Physics any other TWO science subjects. Candidates must in addition obtain at least a credit pass in English language.
  4. 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).
