Welcome To Our Department
The HOD Welcome Address
Welcome to the Department of Civil Engineering department. The Civil Engineering programme is designed to train engineers that would be capable of analysing, designing, constructing and maintaining physical facilities for the development of the environment. The facilities of interest include structural systems, water supply, wastewater systems and transportation systems. The programme is planned such that its products would have been thoroughly trained in structural analysis and structural design, surveying and highway engineering, soil mechanics and foundation engineering, water systems designs (water works, wastewater works, dams and various hydraulic systems). This, of course, is a set of standard Civil Engineering core courses. But in addition to this, it is intended to train engineers that would be truly literate. Indeed, this is in the expression of the philosophy of the Faculty of Technology, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife. In this connection, the programme includes courses in Applied Electricity and Applied Electricity Laboratory, Technical Report Writing, Industrial Economics, Management Principles, and so on. Once again, I say welcome.
