WELCOME TO ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT.
The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering is as old as the college itself. The Department was established in 1947.
The programmes offered in the Department are:
- National Diploma (ND) Electrical/Electronic Engineering
- Higher National Diploma (HND) Electrical/Electronic Engineering
inception, various certificate programmes such as the City and Guilds
of London Institute and the Senior Course of Yaba Technical were offered
by the Department. However, in 1960 the college (then known as the Yaba
Technical Institute made a special appeal to the City and Guilds of
London Institute for running the Ordinary Diploma Programme in
Electrical Engineering Programme this was granted. The Higher National
Diploma Programme started in 1963 simultaneously with the Higher
Certificate of the City and Guilds of London Institute. These programme
were in operation till 1969, when the City and Guilds of London
institute was phased out and replaced with the Higher National Diploma.
1978, one-tier system was introduced which led to the award of the
Nigerian National Diploma (NND). This was later jettisoned in April 1980
by a Presidential fiat due to a Nation-wide student’s protest. The
two-tier system was re-introduced in 1980 and since then, the HND has
been in operation till date.
1987, the Accreditation Team for National Board of Technical Education
(NBTE) in Nigeria came for the first time to the Department for
Accreditation and the two programmes (HND) and (ND) were given full
re-accreditation Team visited the Department in 1999 and the two
programme were accredited for National Diploma (ND) and Higher National
Diploma (HND) in Electrical Power and Electronics Engineering Options
respectively. Subsequent visits
by the accreditation team resulted in full accreditation of the National
Diploma (ND) and Higher National Diploma (HND) programmes on each
is designed to produced Electrical and Electronics Engineering
Technicians for the manufacturing, assembling, servicing, maintaining,
power generating, transmitting, distributing utilization of electrical
The diplomats of the programmes should be able to:
simple electrical/electronic circuits when necessary for use in
modification of fabrication as part of major construction.
- Erect, assemble and install simple electrical and electronics equipment.
- Carry out routine maintenance and repair works on simple electronics/electrical installation equipment.
and use appropriate instrument to carry out simple tests and
measurements on all types of electronics/electrical installation of
equipment under various conditions.
- Prepare simple bills of quantities (BOQ) and specifications related to electrical and electronics works.
