COREN visits Electrical and Information Engineering (EIE) for accreditation of Electrical and Electronics Engineering

A team from the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) on accreditation visit to Department of Electrical and Information Engineering, Covenant University, has called for renewed scrutiny of engineering programme curriculum with the goal of repositioning the profession for global relevance.

The Team Lead, Dr Felicia Agubata (FNSE), said accreditation of engineering programmes is a major mandate of the Council, intending to enhance quality assurance and ensure that graduates of engineering programmes in all tertiary institutions in the country are sound, functional and efficient engineering personnel who can meet the challenges of the present and future society, and have the capacity to compete favourably with their counterparts anywhere in the world. 

Dr Agubata said the Council's attention had been drawn to the use of name for engineers especially in the academic environment. The title "ENGR." must be added to every registered engineer in the academic environment. 

Dr Agubata, who led an 8-man team on the exercise, said the Council is working hard to improve engineering education and training. COREN's accreditation exercise is for partnership and growth, not for witch-hunting. "It is aimed at building, not destroying: it is also a very strict process; firm, but fair," she posited.

She commended the University Management for the robust curriculum used within the University system that has reflected positively in the lifestyle of her graduates and their comportment in the world of work. According to her, "Your products are distinct and unique in their disposition and conduct in the world of work. I have encountered them, and they stand different when compared to their peers. No doubt, you are doing something great and unique here that is in line with your vision of raising a new generation of leaders," he stated.
