The Department of Electrical Engineering was founded in 1964 as one of three pioneering departments of the University of Lagos' Faculty of Engineering. Courses were taught at the department as part of a curriculum aimed to grant the Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree in Electrical Engineering. Initially, the programme was a three-year post A-levels programme (four-year post O-levels), but during the 1976/77 academic session, it was modified to a four-year post A-levels (or five-year post O-levels) programme, in order to accommodate a one-year supervised industrial training scheme (the Students' Industrial Work-Experience Scheme (SIWES)). A proposal to effect the change of name of the programme from Electrical Engineering to Electrical & Electronics Engineering was approved by the University of Lagos Senate in 1999, and consequently, the department now runs Electrical & Electronics Engineering and Computer Engineering Degree Programmes. It is worth pointing out that the academic staff of the department are senior members of reputable international engineering bodies such as the Nigerian Society of Engineers, Nigerian Academy of Engineering, British Institution of Engineering and Technology, Acoustical Society of America, American Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, The Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria as well as the Nigerian Academy of Science. These academic authorities have been engaged over the years in cutting-edge academic research, industry partnership and curriculum review to reflect the emerging innovations necessary to prepare students for future challenges and possibilities. The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering grants two undergraduate degrees: the Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Electronics Engineering and the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering. Our postgraduate degrees include a Master of Science in Electrical & Electronics Engineering with specialization options in Communication Engineering, Control Engineering, Electronics Engineering, and Power System Engineering, as well as a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). The master's degree program can be finished in two academic semesters (full time) or four academic semesters (part time), whereas the doctorate program can be completed in six or more academic semesters.







Research Themes

Antenna and Propagation

This group investigates a wide range of radio frequency design, measurement, and modeling issues. The group is particularly interested in antenna measurement and evaluation techniques, multiple-element antenna arrays, such as massive MIMO, radio frequency measurements for cellular mobile scenarios, microwave and millimeter wave antenna systems, and demonstration of antenna effects on radio link performance for novel applications such as 5G and beyond-5G initiatives. Multi-band antennas, reconfigurable antennas, flexible conformal wideband antennas, microstrip patch antennas, MIMO, Massive-MIMO, and Smart antenna designs are among the antenna structures being investigated.

Control, Drives and Machines
Electromagnetic Sensors and Signal Processing
Electronics, Embedded Systems and Internet of Things


Power Systems and High Voltage Engineering

Power system design and analysis, load forecasting and modeling, power system protection and control, fault and power quality analysis, power quality improvement in distribution systems, power electronics and control for wind and PV energy generation and distribution systems are all investigated by this research group. Grid interfacing of distributed energy resources, distributed generation issues, nonlinear systems theory and applications, power sector deregulation and electricity markets, reactive power control, real and reactive power pricing, simulation, modeling, and analysis of FACTS devices, High Voltage (HV) testing techniques, microgrid, smart, and distributed grid systems are all covered in this group.
