Dr. Ayanniyi Mufutau AYANSHOLA

Department of Water Resources and Environmental Engineering

BRIEF BIOGRAPHY

I joined the Department of Civil Engineering, University of Ilorin in February 2000 as a Graduate Assistant. I was assigned to cover tutorial and laboratory classes and on completion of my higher degrees I was assigned to teach other courses at undergraduate and graduate levels. I have handled the teaching responsibilities very effectively and able to impact knowledge to my students. I am a member of Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) and I have registered to practice Engineering in Nigeria by Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN). I have also handle some administrative position in the University such as Acting Head of Department in the Department of Water Resources and Environmental Engineering. I am presently a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Water Resources and Environmental Engineering and the Coordinator of National Water Resources Capacity Building Network, North Central (NWRCBNet-NC)

I have worked in areas of Water Distribution Systems Management and Modelling. The outcomes of his works are commendable and useful in the management of both rural and municipal water supply system and water distribution network system. My research findings are embodiment of scientific enquiry and solutions, robustness and consistency.
