The department of Mechanical Engineering’s core mission is to address the most pressing needs of human society, with a particular emphasis on the fields of energy, transportation and health. It offers you a broad based degree with a sound grounding in engineering science focusing on quantitative, problem-solving, mechanical design and the opportunity to develop communication skills. Our degree programs give students the broad skill set they need to pursue their goals – whether that’s working as an engineer, founding a company, continuing on to a postgraduate study and research, or going to a professional school to study business and management.
The Mechanical Engineering Program at KSUSTA makes available a high quality, relevant engineering education by providing students with a set of skills, knowledge and attitudes that will permit its graduates to succeed and thrive as engineers and leaders..
The Mechanical Engineering program at Kebbi State University of Scicence & Technology will be a citadel of learning of new technology, strives to graduate mechanical engineers of the highest quality and to conduct state-to-the-art research..
The basic admission requirements into the Faculty of Engineering shall be:
Candidates whishing to be admitted into the B.Eng. Mechanical 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)|
