Technology for tomorrow
School of Engineering
Welcome to the official site of the School of Engineering
This school encompasses:
Civil Engineering is the design, construction and maintenance of roads, railways, airports, bridges, harbours, large buildings, dams, water supply, sanitation facilities etc. Modern communities are very much dependant on civil engineering.
Electrical Engineering is the study of the behaviour of electrical, electronic, digital electronic and electromechanical systems. Electrical Engineers develop, manufacture and maintain systems that generate, transmit, distribute and ensure effective and sustainable use of electricity. Furthermore, communication on a local, national as well as global basis is provided through the means of analog and digital communication methods used in telephones, two way radio, broadcast radio, television, cellular and satellite communication systems.
Industrial Engineering is regarded as a leading profession whose practitioners plan, design, implement and manage integrated production and service delivery systems that assure performance, reliability, maintainability, schedule adherence and cost control.
It is concerned with machines, vehicles, power generation, refrigeration & air-conditioning, ships or aircraft. The Mechanical Engineering team is responsible for the design, development, production and technical marketing of a large variety of machines. They also commission and run industrial installations and process plants. Computer-aided design is an important tool for modern mechanical engineering and is a key subject alongside mechanics, fluid mechanics, strength of materials and thermodynamics.
Mechatronics is a new focus area in engineering and is a combination of precision mechanical engineering, electronics and computer systems. Engineers in this field play a key role in the design, development, manufacture and operation of a variety of products.
