This write up will focus on Top 10 Best Engineering Universities in Nigeria, Engineering have become one of courses that are most sought after in Nigerian universities. The competition to study engineering in our university has become high with most universities raising their cut off point for admission.

Engineering records one of the highest numbers of applicants who apply to study various courses under engineering in our universities according to the Nigeria University Commission (NUC).

Engineering graduates are most sought after in the labour market considering the technological input they bring on board to the various job they engage in, most employers of labour are in need of engineering graduates in their establishment, making them highly sought after in the labour market.

Engineering is the application of science-based knowledge to solve a problem in the real world, the basis of this study can be traced to our elementary science in secondary school chemistry, physics, and biology.

Engineers are well sought after that is why they are referred to as problem solvers, they organize and are very calculative.

Branches of Engineering

Most Nigeria universities engineering courses are divided into several branches with each branch having its own areas of specialization and concentration.

The areas of specialization is outlined below:

  • Electrical/Electronic Engineering
  • Computer Engineering,
  • Telecommunication Engineering,
  • Information and Communication Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Mechatronics Engineering
  • Petroleum Engineering
  • Mining Engineering
  • Agricultural Engineering
  • Food Engineering
  • Material and Metallurgical Engineering
  • Automobile Engineering
  • Structural Engineering
  • Production Engineering

NOTE

Before all these areas of specialization are being allowed to be run in our universities they must go through approval by the body that regulates engineering courses in Nigeria, the body that those this regulation and approval is known as COREN.

They approve all the engineering courses being run in our universities and any university that those not meet the standard are disapproved from running courses in engineering.
