Overview

At the take-off of the College of Science and Technology on the 21st of October 2002, all the academic programmes were grouped into two Departments, namely:

  1. Department of Computer and Information Technology
  2. Department of Environmental Sciences

The Department of Computer and Information Technology started with the following Degree Programmes:

  • B.Sc Computer Science (4 years)
  • B.Sc Management & Information System (4 years)
  • B.Eng Computer Engineering (5 years)
  • B.Tech Information Technology (5 years)

The 5-year Degree Programme in Electrical and Electronics Engineering was introduced in the 2003/2004 academic session. At the beginning of the 2004/2005 academic session, more engineering programmes were introduced. These additions necessitated the re–grouping of the Programmes. This re-grouping gave birth to the Department of Electrical and Information Engineering.

The Department of Electrical and Information Engineering offers three Degree Programmes, namely:

  • Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng) in Computer Engineering
  • Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering
  • Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng) in Information and Communication Engineering

The duration of each of the Degree Programmes in the Department is five (5) years or ten (10) semesters. Nine (9) semesters of coursework and laboratory practicals are spent in the University. The long vacation of eight (8) weeks between the 200 level and 300 levels is devoted to Students’ Work Experience Programme (SWEP) in the different works and production centres of the University (e.g., Wood mill, batching plant, metal fabrication workshop, bakery, Hebron Water, Dominion Press, CLMT, construction sites, etc.). At the 400 level, students embark on Students Industrial Experience Scheme (SIWES) which involves six months of industrial training, starting immediately after the Alpha Semester. As a result, the first three years, that is 100, 200, 300 levels, are 100% common to the three Programmes.
