Programs & Events

INTRODUCTION

Materials and Metallurgy Engineering is course for advance and high technology applications. These includes but not limited to; metals, non-metals, ceramics and polymers, composites. Also, an emerging trend in the Engineering industry is the development of new processes for producing specialty materials, such as plastics, lightweight metal alloys and nano-materials, for a wide variety of industrial and consumer applications. It is noteworthy that every product, regardless of size, shape and/or area of use, is made of materials. These materials must specify the correct properties; - first for the production and subsequently for service. The choice of materials must therefore ensure that the products will not fail in service. This course therefore covers these areas and is designed to provide the students with the skills for a successful career in the materials and related industries. As with most engineering courses, core engineering concepts are covered in earlier years of the (One and two hundred levels), with specialty materials-related topics being introduced at the later stages which include industrial polymer engineering, reaction engineering, materials properties and structures, and nano-technology.

Chemistry 8 Credit units.
Physics 8 Credit units.
Mathematics 10 Credit units.

Industrial Training:
One year of industrial training is an integral part of the five year degree programme. This is made up of 10 weeks of students work experience programme (SWEP) which is executed internally at the end of 200 level, twelve weeks of student industrial work experience scheme (SIWES 1); which is done in an industry at the end of 300 level, and 24 weeks of student industrial work experience scheme (SIWES II) which is done at the end of first semester of 400 level. However, an academically weak student may defer SIWES II, until he/she clears the carry-over (failed) courses. Such students must satisfy the SIWES requirements before proceeding to 500 level.
NOTE: Student on SIWES cannot concurrently register for (or take) any course during the semester while undertaking the (SIWES) programme.
Training Facilities:
i) Laboratory Facilities:-
Experimental and research works are undertaken in various laboratory units in the department.
ii) Library Facilities:-
The University Library has a sizeable collection of books and journals mainly Technical and Scientific Titles. Most of the books are on open shelves and are available for borrowing on consultation by Students.
Registration of Courses:
The University operates an on-line registration, where all the courses the students in qualified to undertake must be registered on web, at the beginning of the session. All registrations must end before the matriculation exercise of new students into the University.
Students are required to register with the department and the Dean’s office for all courses to be taken in each semester of the session. A maximum of twenty-four (24) credit load/hours per week and a minimum of sixteen (16) credit load/hours per week only would be allowed in each semester of a session.
If a student decides to take an examination for a course for which he is not registered, such examination results would be cancelled by the department. All pre-requisite courses must be taken/registered and passed before other higher level courses can be registered by the student. Students on industrial training should not register for any course during their period of (SIWES) training. No student is allowed to repeat any course he/she had previously passed.
Grading System:
The Federal University of Technology Minna, Niger State Nigeria, operates a five (5.0) point grading system. Examination carries 60% while the continuous assessment (which is made up of class attendance/quiz/test/assignment/mini-project; (all at the discretion of the course lecturer) carries 40%.

A CALCULATION OF SEMESTER GRADE POINT AVERAGE (SGPA) AND CUMULATIVE GRADE POINT AVERAGE (CGPA)
SGPA Calculation
At the end of each Semester a student’s Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) is calculated. This will give an indication of the performance of the student in the that particular semester. SGPA is derived by multiplying Credit Units and Grade Points obtained and by dividing the total Credit Units registered in that semester. The following example illustrates how SGPA is calculated:

CGPA Calculation
A series of SGPA’s weighed and averaged together over a member of semester will constitute the students Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA). It gives an indicator of how the student has performed so far at any point in time during his academic period. The following example shows how the CGPA of a student is calculated in one academic session:-
