                                           FACULTY OF ENGINEERING

1.       Introduction
Engineering is concerned with the application of scientific and engineering knowledge gained through study to
practical problems of human society so as to improve the overall quality of life and living of a people. Thus, the
ultimate goal of engineering education is the development of competent and responsible men who will provide the
creative leadership necessary for the full realization of the potentials of engineering as a social force. Since
engineering is “the professional art of applying science to the optimum conversion of natural resources to the benefit
of man”, the engineer must study the science and their applications, the material and energy resources and their
conversion, and man and his needs. The practice of engineering is a lifetime career, and in a profession where rapid
change is the accepted thing, learning must be continuous. The first stage of professional preparation in the college
years should provide education for social responsibility, for intelligent living, and for technical competence.

1.1        Engineer’s Education for Social Responsibilities
The Engineer is a powerful agent for social change. His ideas and his works change the course of civilization and
create new patterns of human values. Society demands higher standards of living and expects the engineer to exploit
his scientific knowledge and technical skill in improving productivity, increasing comfort, lengthening life, and
facilitating communication and transportation. At the same time, society insists that the engineer preserves the social
and human values basic to our varied cultures. Furthermore, it is now clear that in many fields technological
innovation is limited by social and political factors. In preparation for his decision-making role, the engineer must be
trained to understand and appreciate man and his social institutions; such as in social sciences of management,
economics, history, anthropology, the Truth as it is, etc.
To achieve the national, and specifically the Delta State goals and objectives of industrialization and self reliance,
Engineering and Technology Education (ETE) should also include element of philosophy, sociology, psychology and
the political sciences.

1.2       Definition of Engineering
Over the years and ages, engineering practice has left behind many types of pollution and harmful effects to the whole
ecosystem and the environment. It is now more than ever before to add that in all engineering practices and
technological development in the production of goods and services, we shall no more harm the environment or it is
better said that harmful effects must be reduced to the barest minimum. Thus the graduate engineer has to be conscious
of this aspect of his enormous responsibility; for he who causes an effect bears the full responsibility of the effects of
what he has caused. Though he performs his duties best in all technical sciences through the use of his intellect, he
must not forget that he is nevertheless, a spirit being in the Great School, the Universe. He must therefore more
importantly develop his spirit to control, guide and use all that appertains to the body for the good life and living on
          There are many definitions for the engineer and the Engineering profession. The basic essential
characteristics of engineering are;
(i)    Engineering is a profession
(ii) Engineering is an art rather than being a science
(iii) Engineering is based on the application of science.
(iv) Engineering is concerned with optimum efficiency, economic, and safety
(v)     Engineering involves the utilization of natural resources
(vi) Engineering has its ultimate purpose the benefit and welfare of man.
       These six elements may now be incorporated into a sentence and give the following definition:
       Engineering is the professional art of applying science to the optimum conversion of natural resources to
       the benefit and welfare of man, and for today, without causing harm to environment.

1.3      Faculty Office and Departments

The Faculty of Engineering started in 6/12/2006 (2006/2007 session) at the Oleh campus. There will be a Dean as the
Head of the Faculty responsible to the Vice Chancellor. There will also be the Faculty Board which is a Committee of
Senate and the chairman of the Faculty Board is the Vice Chancellor when he is in attendance; other-wise all Faculty
Board meetings are chaired by the Dean, or in his absence, the person he has appointed to act in his place.
1.4 Departments of the Faculty
The Faculty will be broken into the following departments.
     i)        Chemical Engineering
     ii)       Civil Engineering
     iii)      Electrical, Electronics and Computer Engineering
     iv)       Mechanical, Metallurgical and Production Engineering
     v)        Petroleum and Gas Engineering
     vi)       Ceramics and Glass Engineering
Each department will be headed by the Head of department to be appointed by the vice chancellor on the
recommendation of the Dean of the Faculty. The Vice Chancellor for reasons known to him is not bound to honour the
recommendation of the Dean.
          The Head of the Department is responsible through the Dean to the Vice Chancellor and is the Chief
Examiner for the Department.
          There will be a Faculty Library and Faculty Librarian responsible through the Dean to the University
          There will be a Faculty workshop to be headed by a Chief Technologist (or Workshop Manager), who shall
be responsible to the Dean. Most workshop training of students such as the well established Students‟ Work
Experience Programme will take place in the Faculty workshop. Other experiences such students‟ project and other
skills acquisition effort will be in the Faculty workshop. Hence the workshop should be well equipped.
          Each Department will have its own laboratories facilities, structures, equipment and measuring instruments. It
will be the responsibility of the University to provide all that is required for the best education and training of
engineering and technological students.

1.5      Organization of Academic Programmes

of the Faculty of Engineering which is that of the total development of man in engineering, in order to produce
graduates with good and internationally acceptable academic standard and of real value to industry and to the nation at
large. The programme stresses the importance of analysis, criticism and acquisition of knowledge in addition to
seeking to imbibe in the graduate the culture of formulation, design and solution to problems involved in making and
organizing a culture, which emphasizes the design, construction and supervision of work as well as services and day to
day management of affairs.
         The intrinsic philosophy of the programme is based on the science and art of designing and making with
economy and elegance, building, bridges framework, and other structures so that they can safely resist the forces to
which they may be subjected. The emphasis is on design, build/construct and maintain, and allowing for economy,
safety and aesthetics with full exploitation of applicable technology,
         The programme is designed to take cognizance of and to be in harmony with
(a)      The Faculty of Engineering, Delta State University general philosophy and objectives on which the Faculty
         was established;

         1989 (and recently reviewed in 2005) pertaining to Engineering and Technology;
(c)      The Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) requisites for this area;
(d)      Other Regulatory Bodies requisite such as the Nigeria Society of Engineers;
(e)      The Nigeria‟s National Policy of Education;
(f)      The Energy Commission of Nigeria
(g)      The Federal Ministry of Science and Technology and finally;
(h)      Those philosophy and objectives intrinsic and unique to achieving high academic and professional
         development / goals in all fields of technical sciences for the country.

2.1     Aims and Objectives

2.2.1   Aims
        The Primary aims of the courses are:
1.      To provide much needed manpower and expertise in manufacturing and the power supply industries and for
        the users; that is, in areas such as building industries, aircraft industries, docks and hardcore mining
        industries, oil and gas industries and off-shore structures, timber engineering steel structures etc in pursuance
        of the above.
2.      To present topics of importance to diverse engineers in a unified form of study.
3.      To offer specialized topics also as optional subjects in the final year. These may be drawn from specialized
        fields depending on the available expertise.
4.      To investigate various problems at Masters and Ph.D Research and Development Projects.

2.2.2   Objectives
        The objectives of the courses are:
1.      To develop the necessary skills of creative ability, attitudes, and expertise consistent with engineering design,
        engineering communication and construction of Engineering works and projects.
2.      To adapt and adopt exogenous technology in order to enhance construction techniques and the proper study
        and use of local materials.
3.      To inculcate operation and maintenance culture in the use of engineering systems, structural artifacts and
4.      To inculcate a responsible attitude towards demands made by the practice of engineering and risk
        implications to design and construction.
5.      The five year course includes important periods spent outside DELSU under Delta State University Industrial
        Training Scheme (DSUITS) with industries and practicing engineers so as to enhance students professional
        development. This is to bring to focus the essence and importance of academic studies in practical
6.      Throughout the course and particularly in the final year, challenging projects are tackled by each student in
        the various fields of study. The interdisciplinary field of Engineering Technology in the production of goods
        (or products) and rendering of services must now be given adequate priority in the service of the nation.

7.       The programmes allow deeper study of engineering materials and therefore the various technologies for
         refining, producing and using them for various purposes
2.2.3    Admission Requirements; B.Eng
               1.       For the five year B.Eng degree programme, candidates should possess at credit level passes in
                        the SSCE or GCE O Level in five subjects (in not more than two sittings or attempts) including
                        English Language, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.
               2.       For admission to the four year degree programme, candidates must possess
                          (i.)      G.C.E „A‟ Level passes in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry or equivalent and in
                                    addition have matriculation requirements as in (1) above
                          (ii.)     OND/HND at Upper Credit level and with credit level passes plus a minimum
                                    matriculation requirement
                          (iii.)    The NBTE advanced level passes must be in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry
                                    and not in craft courses as some think.
               3.       All admissions into (1) and (2) above are through the joint admission and matriculation Board
                        (JAMB) stipulations and any other screening the University may additionally consider.
All transfers to the Faculty from any source and to any level shall earn average GPA of at least 3.00.
2.2.4    Time table contact hours, etc
2.2.5    Time Tabling
(i)      Courses Outline
         The Faculty will run and indeed the University runs a course unit system courses. Courses are evaluated in
         terms of credits. A credit is normally defined as a series of lectures - tutorials of one hour per week lasting a
         full semester or a three hour practical per week or an equivalent amount of study or any combination of these,
         assigned a credit. The minimum number of credits for a course is normally 1.
(ii)     Courses Arrangement
         Courses are arranged in levels representing the years for the degree programmes respectively. Thus for the
         undergraduate programmes, there are 100 to 500 levels representing 1 st year (100 – level) degree programmes
         to 5th year (500 – level) degree programmes. The courses at 600 to 900 are reserved for post graduate and post
         degree diploma courses.
2.2.6    Courses Codes
         A course number is normally prefixed by character code indicating the Department offering the course to the
         students. Thus, PHY101 means a course in physics given to 100 level students in the first semester. These
         character codes together with the courses number completely define the courses and these constitute a
         shorthand form that appears in the time table.
2.2.7    Time Table Officers
         There is (or will be a) Faculty time table officer normally appointed by the Faculty Board who draws up the
         Faculty time – table after consultation and clearance from the Dean to whom he is responsible. Using the
         Faculty Time Table as a basis, the various departmental Time Table officers may draw up the departmental
         Time Tables for other courses to reflect all courses not reflected in the Faculty Board Time Table.
         The time tables also include space utilization for all the courses. Accordingly, there is close coordination
         among all the time table officers to optimally utilize the Faculty University space available for giving
         lectures; as well as avoid clashes.
         The Time Table officers (TTO) also prepare the examinations time tables. In the same way they have to avoid
         examination clashes.
2.2.8    Lectures
         These are arranged in one hour or two – hour duration depending on how they are scheduled in the respective
         time tables. They take place from 8am to 12noon and from 1pm to 6pm when necessary
2.2.9    Contact Hours
         Contact hours (between students and relevant staff in the Faculty of Engineering) is from 8am to 6pm, per
         working day with a possible break of one hour.
         Laboratory programmes are usually of 3hrs duration and are held from about 1pm to 4pm, or in some cases
         3pm to 6pm.
3.0      Work Week
         The work is usually from Monday to Friday. However, because of limited space during the work week, part
         time programmes and the ever increasing number of students, some departments may arrange tutorials and
         even lectures for Saturdays. Even part time laboratory courses may be given on Saturdays.

3.1   Tutorials
      These are part of the lecturing process. At tutorials classes student work examples or the teacher works some
      examples to illustrate the principles of the taught courses. During tutorials, students are guided to deeper
      understanding of the taught courses.

3.2   Private Studies
      Private studies are at the discretion of the students. The library is the best place for private studies.
      Sometimes, and indeed very often the class rooms & lecture theatre are used in most evenings from 7pm–12
      midnight during the work week for private studies. Through private studies, the student learns more the
      principles of the taught courses.

3.3   Academic Progression & Probation
      In an academic year a student is usually allowed to register for and take a minimum of 42 credits and a
      maximum of 50 credits. Without prejudice to the above, a graduating student, that is, a student who has less
      than 30 credits to graduate, may register for only the number of credits he requires to graduate. This
      constitutes the relevant Work Load.
      Currently any students who accumulates 21 credits and above in a session is allowed to proceed to the next
      higher level but must clear his deficiencies in terms of core and mandatory courses or the number of credits
      he/she must accumulate at any one level before he graduates.
      A student who accumulates 10-20 credits in the session should either seek inter-Faculty transfer (when such
      exists) or remain in the Faculty on probation (at some level). Students who fail to accumulate a total of 10
      credits at the end of the second semester examinations will be asked to withdraw from the University.
      However, any student who had previously transferred from another Faculty or gone on probation and still
      fails to obtain a total of 15 credits after sessional examinations shall withdraw from the Faculty and the
      University. And a student with less than 1.00 CGPA shall be asked to withdraw from the programme.

      In the case of 400 –level one semester course, the minimum number of courses shall be 21 credits. Students
      who transferred to the Faculty or had previously enjoyed an earlier probation and did not accumulate up to 15
      credits will be asked to with draw from the University.

3.4   Graduation Requirements
      To qualify for the award of an honours degree, a student shall normally spend not less than 5 years (for JME
      admissions) or 4 years for 4 – year degree programme for those who entered through direct entry. He shall
      pass all prescribed courses in the set examinations

3.5   Examinations
                All courses are assessed using examinations, continuous assessments and laboratories practical work
      at the end of each semester. Delta State University industrial training scheme (DELSUITS), laboratory
      courses, workshop practice courses seminar courses and projects are however on the basis of written reports
      and or oral defence. They shall be passed before a degree is awarded, and where necessary scored and credits
      earned are awarded
                The Degree classification is as detailed below.
      Class of Degrees;           Grade Point Average (GPA)
      First class honours                  4.50 - 5.00
      Second class honours                 3.50 - 4.49
      Upper division                       3.50 - 4.49
      Lower division                       2.40 - 3.49
      Third class honours                  1.50 - 2.39
      Pass                                 1.00 - 1.49

3.6   Students Results
      Student shall be given their results in alphabetic grades and grade point which represent the grades of marks
      Percentage Score     Letter Grade                Grade Point
      70 – 100%                  A                           5

      0 – 39%                    F                           0

3.7   Calculation of the Grade Point Average (GPA) for Each Level
      A Grade Point average (GPA) is calculated by weighting it with the number of credits attached to each
      course. The student final grade is calculated from the sum of the weighted Grade Point Average (GPA) for
      each level of the courses as follows;
      Let CMi be the coursemark or (Grade Point) in the ith course and CWi the credit weighting of that course.
      Then the grade point average GPA (OR % Average) is given as follows:-
                                                   Sum (i =1 toN) CMi (OR % Mark) X CWi
      (%) Average, OR, (Grade Point Average) =
                                                              Sum (i =1toN) CWi
      Obtain corresponding GPA per level from section 3.7 above.

      The rating, R of each level shall be as detailed in the table:-

3.9   Final Weighted Grade (FWG)
      The students‟ Final Weighted Grade is calculated by use of the formula given below:-
      No. of Years      Final Weighted Grade (FWG)
      5-Year Degree Programme
      R1 x GPA1 + R2 x GPA2 + R3 x
      GPA3 + R4 x GPA4 + R5 x GPA5

      4-Year Degree Programme
      R2 x GPA2 + R3 x GPA3+
      R4 x GPA4 + R5 x GPA5

      3-Year Degree Programme
      R3 x GPA3 + R4 x GPA4 + R5 x GPA5

      The above method (Section 3.7 to 3.9) is replaceable by the General University Formula whenever this
      becomes necessary
      Provided that no student who has spent more than seven sessions (without intervening illness) to complete the
      degree shall be awarded a First Class Honours.

4.0   Title Of Degree
      The major disciplines in which the degrees will be awarded are indicated as below.
      B. Eng. (Chemical Engineering) for the degree in Chemical Engineering
      B. Eng. (Civil and Environmental Engineering) for the degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering
      B. Eng. (Electrical / Electronics and Computer Engineering) for the degree in Electrical/Electronics and

      B. Eng. (Petroleum and Gas Engineering) for the degree in Petroleum and Gas Engineering
      B.Eng. (Ceramics and Glass Engineering) for the degree in Ceramics and Glass Engineering.

4.1   Some other Categories of Students
      The following are other categories into which a student‟s status may be classified at the end of the session
      which are not dependent on the total number of credits earned or failed:
1.    Voluntary Withdrawal: A student who has applied for voluntary withdrawal or failed to register for the
      session is deemed to have voluntarily withdrawn. A student that applied for voluntary withdrawal enjoys it
      only for the approved period by senate unless such application is renewed and approved.
2.    Disciplinary/Misconduct Cases: The results of any student with pending disciplinary or examination
      misconduct cases are usually withheld until the determination of the case.
3.    Medical Cases: A student with a genuine medical case may apply to repeat courses or examinations missed
      with proper documentation.
4.    Special Cases: Any case which does not fall into the above cases is regarded as a special case
4.2   Notes:
(a)   Any medical case must be reported to the Head of Department in writing at least 24 hours before the
(b)   A student who registered for a course but fails to take the examination without an approved reason is deemed
      to have failed the course.
      Sections 4.1 and 4.2 are subject to overall University‟s regulation where these exist.

4.3   Processing of Academic Transcripts
      Applications for transcripts are usually made to the University through the Examination and Records Office.
      Such applications are then processed through the Faculty. The results in the transcripts are authenticated in
      the respective Departments and then forwarded to the Dean‟s Office for final transmission to the
      Examinations and Records Office. Applicants are not allowed to handle their transcripts during the
      processing, but transcripts should be forwarded directly to the organization demanding for it.

4.4   Industrial Training
      The Faculty of Engineering, right from its establishment always believed that the students should be trained
      to use their hands and their heads in tandem. The University of Delta State Industrial Training Scheme
      (DSUITS) will therefore be an integral part of the Bachelor of Engineering training programme. A student
      cannot graduate from the Faculty unless he has passed all the required industrial training credits. This
      industrial training should aim at becoming a model for the training of young engineers in Nigeria
      The full undergraduate industrial training scheme of the Faculty starts with a six weeks training (known as
      Pre – Degree DSUITS) in the Faculty of engineering Workshop after the first year. The students then undergo
      three(3) months industrial training at the end of their second and third years, respectively. During the second
      semester of the 400 – level and the following long holidays the student serves as an intern in industry for six
      months to complete his industrial training programme.

         CHAPTER 4


Chemical Engineers design and develop new processes and processing facilities for the production
of chemicals in large quantities. Such chemicals include acids, dyes, synthetics, alkalis, plastics,
polymers, insecticides, fungicides, and many comparable products for domestic and industrial
uses. The production process may involve chemical reactions of raw materials, such as oxidation
and hydrogenation, chlorination, nitration, and reduction. Output products also include fuels,
medicines, plasmas, and textiles.

Areas of Specialization and Research Activity
The following are the areas of specialization offered by the department. These areas correspond to
those in which research activities are channeled in the department:
                          1. Unit Area
                          2. Chemical reaction Engineering
                          3. Chemical Process Development.

The Philosophy of the Bachelor of Engineering Degree Programme in Chemical Engineering is in
accord with general philosophy of the Faculty of engineering which is concerned with the total
development of man in Engineering and his place and functions in society. The knowledge of
Chemistry in addition to other basic sciences is what distinguishes the chemical engineer from
others in the engineering family.

The principal aim and objective of Chemical Engineering department is the production of
engineers who are not only capable of meeting the challenges in the Chemical Industry but also
capable of being job-creators instead of job-seekers. It therefore emphasis a sound knowledge of
engineering principles coupled with a high practical and innovative ability to shoulder a broad
spectrum of engineering responsibilities. To this end, the courses offered in the department are
designed to provide the educational training and skills necessary for understanding, planning,
designing, operating and maintaining the various processes and operations involved in the modern
chemical and petroleum industry.

In addition to the teaching programmes, the department encourages research and development
work by the students and academic staff. This area is taken very seriously by this department in
view of our present economic problems and lack of maintenance of numerous sophisticated
machines from overseas dumped into this country. Students are therefore encouraged to develop
indigenous chemical processes which are appropriate for our specific needs and environment and
which utilise our natural materials (resources). They are likewise encouraged to design, assemble
and construct the equipment needed for their research projects.

Emphasis is also placed on the construction of pilot plant and mini-pilot plant scale equipment in
order to afford students the opportunity to work with units which approximate those used in the

       CHAPTER 5


Civil Engineers design highways, bridges, tunnels, large buildings, dams, canals and waterways, water-supply systems
(wells, pipelines, storage facilities), sanitary and sewage treatment and disposal systems, airports and transportation
systems, and related projects. Civil engineers are also involved in city planning and management activities (street
planning, zoning, industrial site development, and management activities tenance functions). Civil Engineering is
somewhat broader than most engineering fields and is often subdivided into more specialized areas, such as city
management, construction engineering, highway engineering, hydraulic engineering, sanitary engineering, structural
engineering, and transportation engineering.
Depending on the field of specialty within civil engineering, knowledge of surveying, geology, structures, hydraulics,
sanitation, air and water pollution control, soil mechanics, and or environmental requirements is necessary.

The basic philosophy of the Bachelor of Engineering Degree programmes in Civil Engineering is in accordance with
general philosophy of the Faculty of Engineering which is that of total development of man in Engineering for the
welfare of Mankind.

In order to produce graduate with a good and internationally acceptable academic standard and to be of real value to
industry and the nation at large, the programmes stress the importance of analysis, criticism and acquisition of
knowledge in addition to seeking to imbue in the graduate the culture of formulation and solution of problems
involved in making and organizing a culture which emphasizes the design, construction and supervision of works and
services and day-to-day management of affairs.

The programmes are designed to make cognizance of and be in harmony with:
(e)   The Faculty of Engineering, Delta State University general philosophy and objectives on which the Faculty as
(f)   The philosophy and objectives of the National University Commission (NUC) “ Minimum Standard” of July,
      1989, pertaining to Engineering and Technology. (or as may be review from time-to-time)
(g)    The Council for the regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) requisites for this area.
(h)   Other Regulating Bodies‟ requisites such as the Nigerian Society of Engineers, and the
(i)   The Nigeria‟s national policy on education, and finally.
(j)   Those philosophies and objectives intrinsic and unique to achieving high academics and professional
      development in Civil Engineering and Technology in this country.

The Bachelor of Engineering Degree courses in Civil Engineering are primarily designed to turn out engineers who
will be capable of serving in the context of Nigeria problems.

To achieve this objective, the following features were incorporated in the B. Eng. Civil Engineering programmes:
    1. Attention to design problems with a bias towards local application.
    2. Ensuring understanding of the broad base of Engineering and the need for interaction between engineering
        and other professional
    3. Ensuring that the students is capable of deep study by giving them close specialization in his final year with a
        project which the student works alone, or in a group under supervision by an academic staff.
    4. Ensuring in in-depth study in a particular area of Civil Engineering through option courses of electives
        where the Lecturer is allowed to aim at a standard between t he Bachelor of Engineering degree and Master of
        Engineering degree, i.e somewhat above the fist degree general courses

          CHAPTER 6


Electrical and electronic engineers are responsible for the design and development of systems that create, transfer and
utilize energy. This includes electrical power systems, computer systems, communication systems, electronic systems
(radar, navigation, fire control and missile guidance, signal processing equipment, etc), electro-optical devices;
instrumentation, appliances, and small electrical/electronic components. As is the case in civil engineering, this field is
often subdivided into more specialized areas, such as electrical engineering, electronic engineering, communications
engineering, power engineering and computer engineering. Knowledge of electricity, electronic theory (e.g. analog
and digital techniques, transistors, semiconmagnetic wave theory, and related subjects is required.

The department offers a degree programme leadidng to the award of the Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng) in
Electrical/Electronics and Computer Engineering.

The Philosophy of the Department is geared towards the in-depth acquisition of the knowledge and skills of all aspects
of electrical, electronics and computer engineering; the industrial knowledge with high academic standard and
adequate practical background for self actualization as well as being of immediate value to industry and the
community in general.

The main objectives of the Department Undergraduate Degree programme are as follows:
    1. To train engineers to meet the commercial, industrial, educational and technological, electrical and computer
         manpower needs of Nigeria.
    2. To produce technocrats who can keep up with the rapid pace of change in the electrical and computer industry
         world – wide.
    3. To train engineers who can provide the technical support base for the fast growing population of computers,
         computes owners and users in Nigeria.
    4. To provide Nigeria with engineers who can design, produce, maintain and serve computer components,
         peripherals and systems.
    5. To produce engineers who can operate and maintain (O&M) power generation, transmission, distribute and
         commercialization in the power supply and utilization industry.
Each student must complete a project work in final year. Projects normally reflect relevance towards the technological
needs of the Country.

i.      For Applied Electricity, Circuit Theory and Electronics Circuits: A set of laboratory test and measurements
        equipment, it‟s large enough quantity to enable a reasonable number of experiments to go on at the same time,
        bearing in mind the number of students. The same type of measuring equipment and components can be used for
        the various experiments. The following are essential:
              Power supplies (d.c and a.c various voltage, and current ranges).
              Signal generators (low frequency, KHZ high frequency, MHZ ranges).
              Function generators (sine, square-wave, saw-tooth).
              Oscilloscopes (single-beam, double-beam, 5MHZ, 10MHZ, 20MHZ frequency ranges).
              Wide range of meters, voltmeters, multimeters DC and Ac bridges.
              Frequency counters
              Large collection of circuit components (resistors, capacitors, inductors, transistors, IC‟s logic modules,
               operational amplifiers, etc).
              Decade resistances boxes, potentiometers, decade capacitance and inductance boxes.
              Hybrid AC/DC servomechanism system. Nuematic control teaching system, Electro-hydraulic ser system.
              Process control system
              (A number of control system equipment are in ready-made complete units such as those listed above
               available from Feedback Instruments (Ltd), U.K; and similar organisations. They are designed to illustrate
               a number of principles on control theory and systems).
 iii. Electric machines experiments:
        A complete motor-generator set and switchgear equipment available from Siemens, designed to suit most of the
        experiments necessary for motors and generators. The equipment are of industrial types. For simpler and basic
        experiments, Feedback Instruments (Ltd) and J.J Lioyd Instruments (Ltd) manufacture Laboratory type sets. If
        such ready-made equipment could not be purchased, then it is essential that a large number of individual items be
        purchased such that students could make their own circuits and devices.

 The following is a list from which selections could be made:
      Shunt-wound d.c machines
      3-phase squirrel-cage motor
      Starters, field rheostats, resistors
     List of Laboratory Equipment for Installation in Various Laboratories
      3-phase starter, load resistor unit, 3-phase load resistor unit
      capacitor, load.
      3 –phase slip-ring motors
      3-phase salient-pole synchronous machines
      Sing-phase transformer
      3-phase transformer
      Eddy-current brake
      Switchgear and measuring equipment such as moving-iron meters.
      Wattmeters, current transformers, CRT, frequency meters, stroboscopes.
      Phase-sequence indicator, connecting cable, etc.

         Most of the equipment required for experiments in these areas consist mainly of circuit components, logic
         modules and test and measuring equipment. What is required is to acquire a large number of such
         components, IC‟s and modules, and students wire up or connect to breadboards necessary circuits for the
         experiments at hand. However, Feedback Instruments have a variety of digital, microprocessor process
         control and computing training systems with relevant and detailed manuals of experiments to satisfy the

       students‟ needs. There are other similar bodies also in the market. A few microcomputers and the peripherals
       are required, for programming and for experiments.
       Ideally, there should be only two students to a laboratory bench. The number should, in any case, not be more
       than four.

        One laboratory for Applied Electricity, to cater for the needs of the Faculty students at large. This is where
        basic measurement, testing, equipment familiarization and safety precautions are first encountered in
        Electricity Engineering. One laboratory for Electrical Machines. Two other laboratories which can be shared
        for the light current experiments on Circuit Theory, Electronics Circuits Measurements and Instrumentation,
        basic Communication and Control Theory experiments. One laboratory for the computer engineering, which
        should be equipped with well-controlled environmental conditioning (temperature, humidity and dust), and
        highly stabilized voltage supply, to house the microcomputers and sensitive electronic components.
        It is desirable to have a separate laboratory for the final year students as projects laboratory.
        There should be departmental store for equipment and components storage; other smaller stores could be
        attached to the various laboratories. There should be a well-equipped electrical/electronics workshop.

 (b)         EXPERIMENT
        i.    Practical Content of Programmes:
             It is essential to emphasize that stipulated basic and core courses should be accompanied by laboratory
             practicals to adequately illustrate the fundamental principles. At 200 level, at least 3 hours per week should be
             devoted to the Applied Electricity aspect of the prgroamme. At 300 and 400 levels, at least 9 hours per week
             should be spent in the Electrical Engineering laboratories by each student. For the final year, students should
             devote a reasonable amount of time (12 to 15 hours per week) to projects which should be mainly of design,
             construction and testing types.

           CHAPTER 7


Mechanical engineers design and develop systems; which primarily convert energy to useful mechanical forms. This
may include both power-generating machines and machines that transform or consume this power in the completion of
their particular function. Mechanical engineers deals with such items as engines; turbines; motors; control
mechanisms; transportation system (automobiles, trains, space vehicles etc); refrigeration and air-conditioning
systems; propulsion systems (Steam, gas, nuclear); and Cryogenic system. The field requires a basic knowledge of
mechanics, heart transfer, fluids and flows, friction and wear, lubrication, power generation, and combustion.

Areas of Specialization:
1. Mechanical Machine Design
2. Thermodynamics/Heat Transfer
3. Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration
4. Computer-Aided design in Mechanical engineering systems.
5. Metallurgical & Production Engineering

The Mechanical Engineering finds professional career opportunities in almost all areas of government, industry and
the society in Nigeria because of the broadness and versatility of his discipline. In fact, there is hardly any industry or
organisation where an engineer is employed and a Mechanical Engineer would not be needed whereas the reverse is
often found. Thus Mechanical Engineers work in places varying from Hospitals to Steel Companies. Mechanical
Engineers form the bulk of the Engineers in both the upstream and downstream sub-sectors of the Oil industry. Typical
sectors and employers of Mechanical Engineers include:

Construction, Steel, Machine Tool, Government, Finance, Government Parastatals, Research Institutes, Oil, Brewing,
Petro-Chemical, Manufacture, Marketing, etc.

There are also great self-employment opportunities for Mechanical Engineers in Nigeria in such areas as vehicles
repairs, plant maintenance and servicing, air conditioning and refrigeration design, installation, repairs and servicing,
fabrication, marketing, consulting, etc.

The Philosophy of the Mechanical, Metallurgical and Production Engineering Department Faculty of Engineering
DELSU is the training and production of technically qualified and socially conscious Mechanical/Production
Engineers in area of CAD/CAM that would be able to apply technology advances in manufacturing technology;
product development; maintenance and engineering management in response to the entire Deltans‟ demand for
engineering education and subsequent need of Mechanical/Production engineers in the hydrocarbon industry and
renewable energy industries which its activity is very high within the catchment‟s area.

The Department of MMP Engineering has three main objectives:
     1. To train creative and innovative mechanical engineers for:
             (a) Industry.
             (b) Post Graduate Work/Research/Teaching.
             (c) Self employment.

Production Engineering is a unit in the Department of Mechanical, Metallurgical and Production Engineering. The
objective of this department is to produce professionals in the area of engineering namely Manufacturing Engineering
and Industrial Engineering.

Production Engineering is the art and science of transforming materials into usable and saleable end products. It is the
life-line of all industrialized societies, without which no nation could afford many of the amenities that provide quality
of life. The success of any manufacturing organization depends to a very great extent on the education, training,
technological and managerial experiences of the manufacturing engineers whose function is to direct the production
process and to achieve most efficient coordination of effort with due consideration for quality, quantity and cost.

Keeping these in view, the course programme has been designed to discuss in details not only the „how‟ of
manufacturing, but also the „why‟ and under what conditions with emphasis on process optimization.
