Electrical/Electronics Engineering

Mr. Emmanuel Atta Williams, Head of Department

The Department of Electrical/Electronics Engineering was established in 1980 to offer programmes in Power Systems and Electrical Plant at the Technician, Advanced Craft Certificate and Electrical Installation Work levels. In 1993, the Higher National Diploma in Electrical/Electronics Engineering was introduced.

Rationale for the Programme
The rationale for the programme is to provide students with broad technological and basic managerial skills required for the installation, operation, maintenance and repair of domestic, commercial and industrial electrical equipment.

Goals
The cardinal goal is to meet the need for technological skills in the provision of qualified manpower and the expertise required for smooth and rapid expansion of electrical energy and technology to all parts of the country. Another goal is to boost and promote small-scale industry and private enterprises.

Objectives
The objectives are to enable students to:

(a) Acquire knowledge and understanding of the concepts and principles of electricity and electronics;

(b) Develop skills in the use of appropriate tools and electronic instruments in measurements, trouble-shooting and repairs;

(c) Acquire the ability to prepare lay-out, install and commission industrial equipment and electrical services; and

(d) Train other personnel as middle-level-manpower of industry, commerce and for self employment.


Electives offered in the HND Electrical/Electronics Programme
The Department offers Higher National Diploma in Electrical/Electronics Engineering with the following electives:

  1. Power Systems;
  2. Telecommunication; and
  3. Control System.

The Department also runs the Electrical Engineering Technician (E.E.T) programmes up to the final certificate.

Future Plans

The Department plans to increase the electives of the HND programme in the following areas:

  1. Medical Equipment Technician
  2. Digital Computer Design
  3. Computer Hardware Engineering
  4. Electronics Systems
  5. Medical Equipment technology

In order to meet the needs of the emerging Oil and Gas Industry, the Department plans to establish a modern electricity and electronic laboratory which would enable students to perform all their academic laboratory work in the Department. The Department seeks to introduce B-Tech programmes and also arrange an exchange programme with some overseas Tertiary Institutions.

Staffing

The Department is facing staffing problems because of the competitive nature of the labour market’s demand for Electrical Engineers.  We therefore depend on Part-time lecturers to augment the work of the few full-time Academic Staff. The uncompetitive conditions of service have also driven prospective lecturers away anytime they desired to join our Department.
