Building on a legacy of KSUSTA, of educational excellence, equal access and opportunity to students from all walks of life, the Department of Civil Engineering, envisions itself as a department which values excellence in teaching, research, and public service.
The Civil Engineering degree programme started in 2016 in KSUSTA In order to strengthen the practical content of the programme, more attention was laid to industrial training than had been hitherto been done. Industrial training posting was done during the long vacation.
The Department of Civil Engineering will serve its students, government, industry and society by fulfilling the mission of discovery, learning and engagement through the creation, dissemination and application of engineering in the many aspects of modern life where it plays a crucial role...
Our vision is to build upon this legacy through the provision of academic excellence, to link all aspects of our activities with community needs and economic development, and to help students become productive citizens. We aim to produce graduates whose qualifications are internationally recognised and locally applicable, underpinned by values of engaged citizenship and social justice. The Department of Civil Engineering will promote diversity and transformation within KSUSTA and beyond, including growing the next generation of academics...
The basic admission requirements into the Faculty of Engineering shall be:
Candidates whishing to be admitted into the B.Eng. Civil Engineering Programme in the department must satisfy one of the following:
This category of applicants must have Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSCE) or its equivalent. Depending on additional qualification possed by an applicant, there are three ways to apply.
Prospective candidates must have sat for the UTME Examinations, must have applied for a course in the Faculty of Engineering and must have scored an aggregate to be determined by the University before they are deemed eligible in subjects relevant to the programme applied for.
Prospective candidates must have obtained a minimum of Five (5) passes at Credit level in the Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSCE or Equivalent) conducted by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) or the National Examinations Council (NECO) in not more than two (2) sittings, including a pass at credit level in both English and Mathematics and other subjects relevant to the candidate’s chosen field of study. They would then be required to register and write a test (Post -UTME) which is conducted by the University.
The general entry requirements for the Part-time degree programmes are OND (with merit), NCE, IJMB (with a minimum of 8 points), GCE ‘A’ Level (3 credits) and HND (Pass). Applicants must also possess all the necessary ‘O’ Level requirements applicable to the regular full time Undergraduate admissions. This means that credit in English is compulsory for all courses applied, while Mathematics is necessary for science based courses and the Education sciences.
Holders of 'A' Level certificate would be required to submit their credentials for screening.
The minimum duration of Engineering programmes is Five(5) years academic sessions for candidates who enter with Senior Secondary School Certificate or GCE 'O' Level qualifications. Candidates with relevant passes in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry at GCE 'A' Level or equivalent will spend a minimum of Four(4) years academic sessions provided that they satisfy all the other University requirements.
The determination of the class of degree shall be based on the Comulative Grade Point Average(CGPA) earned at the end of the programme. The GPA is computed by dividing the total number of credit points(TCP) by the total number of units(TNU) for all the courses taken in the semester. The CGPA shall be used in the determination of the class of degree as summarized in Table below:
|CGPA||CLASS OF DEGREE|
|4.50 - 5.00||First Class (Hons)|
|3.50 - 4.49||2nd Class Upper (Hons)|
|2.40 - 3.49||2nd Class Lower (Hons)|
|2.00 - 2.39||3rd Class (Hons)|
