Introduction of the Department
The Electrical/Electronic and Biomedical Engineering Department, as the name implies, comprises of two independent programmes namely Electrical & Electronic Engineering and Biomedical Engineering which were established with the determination to harmonize practice and theories with views to advancing scientific knowledge and establishing adequate modalities for the acquisition and right application of technical know-how in modern electrical/electronic and biomedical engineering practices. This is achieve through developing relevant curriculum for object-oriented learning and/or teaching, research and scholarship in the design, redesign and repair of Electrical and Electronic and also Biomedical equipment to suit modern purposes and demands of the society while adequately enhancing the frontier of knowledge in the field of engineering and its allies.
The two programmes provide uniqueness in technical pedagogy and affective attributes; the programmes equip the students with distinct opportunity for capacity building, knowledge empowerment and optimization of potentials. These two programmes were among the seven engineering programmes established at the inception of the University. In other words, the programmes are as old as First Technical University Ibadan. Nevertheless, the two programmes were grouped to form a full-fledged academic department in December 2019.
Philosophy of the Department
The Department was established to harmonize practice and theories with views to applying and advancing modern and international best practices of technical know-how through learning and or teaching, research, scholarship in the design, redesign, repair of electrical and electronic and also biomedical equipment to suit modern purposes and demands of electrical and electronic and health sectors while adequately enhancing the frontier of knowledge in the field of engineering and allies. The two programmes provide uniqueness in technical pedagogy and affective attributes. The programmes equip the students with distinct opportunity for capacity building, knowledge empowerment and optimization of potentials.
To be the leading Department in the field of modern electrical and electronic engineering as well as in biomedical engineering, by deploying highly experienced and skilled personnel in fostering innovative multidisciplinary research, community-centered initiates with a view to applying the concept of Object Based Education techniques in teaching, learning and transformation of research outcome/output into applications while advancing and delivering technologies aimed at sustaining technological acumen and improving state-of-the-art health care equipment in the world.
To train and produce respective graduates of Electrical & Electronic Engineering and Biomedical Engineering in the design, development, fabrication/manufacture, installations and maintenance of equipment involved in electrical power generation, transmission and distribution, and also do same in clinically certified and translatable devices and equipment for medical applications, all through the integration of the adequate knowledge of management, science, engineering, and medicine in solutions discovery-centered system via the blending of theories and practice, while showcasing our graduates as professional leaders in the field of Electrical & Electronic and Biomedical engineering either as self-employed engineer or as an employee in private or public sector for immediate economy or global suitability.
