It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the College of Engineering, one of the four Colleges in Covenant University. The College was created from the College of Science and Technology in the 2014/2015 academic session following a restructuring of the academic base of the University in pursuit of vision 10: 2022. The founding Dean of the College is Professor Cleophas Akin Loto, a former Dean of the College of Science and Technology.
The department of Mechanical Engineering usually holds her Town and Gown Seminars at least thrice in a semester to bridge the gap between academia and industry. This is the first of the series for the Omega semester 2019/2020 academic year. The presentation was on Engineering Entrepreneurship - An Overview. Delivered by Engr. A.B Oyedepo at the departmental Town & Gown Seminar room. Faculty, staff and students were largely in attendance and they all benefited from the short presentation.
Professor Nduka Ekere, a visiting International Scholar to Covenant University, making his presentation as the Guest Speaker at the College of Engineering Seminar Series. He posited that though technically challenging, miniaturisation had its benefits because making things smaller had its advantages. Miniaturisation, he said, had happened through two parallel lines, which included the top-down approach of semi-contractors and microelectronics, and the development of plasma silicon technology and the integration of components and functions.
