Department of Mechanical Engineering

About Department of Mechanical Engineering

The Department of Mechanical Engineering was created in September 1978. The academic and research program of the department was deliberately evolved to meet the yearnings of the Nigerian society for the technological development of the country. The program therefore sought to attract students with proven capacity for mathematical and physical sciences, in addition to their demonstrable ability for logical, imaginative and creative thinking for seeking and obtaining solutions to often-times complex problems. Students were also required to have good command in spoken and written English language.

What We Offer

Mechanical Engineering Curriculum at the University of Ilorin is designed to provide a rigorous background in engineering fundamentals during the first three years with some specialization in the fourth year. Mechanical Engineering students use state-of-the-art laboratories, computers and software in the final year courses to prepare them for the future.

Students offering mechanical engineering curriculum can opt for one of the three emphasized areas:

a. Production (manufacturing) option.

b. Design option.

c. Thermo-fluids option.

As a fundamental engineering discipline, mechanical engineers are sought by virtually every industry and government agency. Mechanical Engineers are found in: design; research and development; manufacturing; production management; project planning; consulting testing; quality assurance and technical sales.
