About Us

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURAL AND BIORESOURCES ENGINEERING

Department of Agricultural and Bioresources Engineering (formerly Agricultural Engineering) was established in 1986, to integrate engineering science and design with applied biological sciences for the solution of problems involving plants, animals, and the natural environment. The department focuses on the design of engineering Systems to ensure that we have safe and plentiful food to eat, pure water to drink, clean fuel and energy sources, and a safe, healthy environment in which to live

The degree of B. Eng (Agric. Engineering) was first approved for the Department in 1986 and the first set of graduands who were admitted through the Higher School Certificate (HSC) passed out in 1989. In 2008, the name of the Department was changed to Agricultural and Bioresources Engineering. The Department now offers approved Undergraduate and Postgraduate degree programmes up to PhD level. The Staff strength rose from just Three (3) in 1986 to Thirty Six (36) comprising of 25 academic staff and 11 Non-academic Staff in 2016. The Department encourages research activities and training for its staff while emphasis is placed on practical exposure for its students. All our programs have full accreditation with both the Nigerian National University Commission (NUC) and the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN). Besides, the department is well equipped with training facilities including Class rooms, Library (Electronic and Conventional), Workshops/Laboratories and Tractors and Equipment Shed

Our Philosophy

Agricultural and Bioresources Engineering integrates engineering science and design and applied biological sciences for the solution of problems involving plants, animals and natural environment. It deals with patterns of relationships among organisms and their environment, and engineering design to develop processes, machines and systems that influence, control, or utilize biological materials and organisms for the benefit of the society.

Our Programs

The Department offers both Undergraduate and Post-graduate programs. Our prestigious program not only appeals to students, but also attracts quality faculty members. We are blessed with erudite professors and top researchers who are eager to pass their knowledge on to student and the research community. So, upon admission as a student, you will have the privilege of working with and learning from highly qualified engineers in their respective fields, and your success is as important to them as it is to you

 

 

 

Our Vision

To be a world class centre of excellence committed to the development and improvement of agricultural resources through engineering for economic, social and cultural well-being.

Our Mission

The Department is committed to the advancement of engineering knowledge in agriculture through excellent teaching, learning and research and to empower our graduates to be self-reliant.
