WELCOME TO CIVIL AND ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING

Professor K. O. Aiyesimoju B.Sc. (Lagos); M.S., Ph.D. (Berkeley)

History of the Programme

The Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering was one of the pioneering departments of the Engineering Faculty and has, since its establishment in 1962 produced many outstanding graduates serving in various capacities in communities worldwide. The department runs academic programmes at both undergraduate and post graduate levels, leading to the award of B.Sc. (Honours) and the M.Sc/Ph.D degree in Civil Engineering. Options at the postgraduate level are available in the areas of Structures, Highway and Transportation, Water Resources and Environmental, and Foundation and Geotechnical Engineering.

The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department has also received the approval of the University Senate and Council to offer courses leading to the award of a B.Sc. degree in Water Resources and Environmental Engineering and will soon begin to admit students into the programme.

This move is to accommodate the already existing emphasis on teaching and research in the department as it exists presently and also to allow for even better performance in addressing the pressing need of the society for the water and environmental engineers. The new curriculum, which has already been approved by the Senate of the University, will allow greater flexibility in the training of manpower for the water environment industry.

As we move into the decades ahead, we invest more in manpower development and also in attracting and retaining highly qualified academics into the department. We would need to invest in new technologies, as well as cooperate with others in the development of new technology. We want private sector of the economy, which are the major beneficiaries of the products of our teaching and research endeavours.
