ABOUT THE SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING
The School of Engineering amongst other Schools in the Cross River Institute of Technology and Management was established in 2017 as an essential arm required for an Institute of Technology and Polytechnic respectively, with the aim of providing disciplines in the field of Engineering profession, whereby a knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences gained by study, experience and practice, is applied to the efficient use of the materials and forces of nature. The vision is to produce:
- Technicians for both the public and private sectors of the economy who can also be self-establishing and self-reliant.
- Industry-based graduates at National Diploma (ND) and Higher National Diploma (HND) levels (Sub Professionals or Paraprofessionals) in order to breach the gap between the professional engineers and the crafts persons or trade-persons
- Graduates who will apply scientific and engineering skills to technical problems; typical of these are engineering aides, specialists, supervisors, designers, and the like.
This vision gave birth to the under-listed discipline to include but not limited to:
- Civil Engineering
- Electrical and Electronics Engineering and
- Computer Engineering (awaiting take off)
STRUCTURE OF PROGRAMME
The structure of the programme is National Diploma (ND) consisting of four semesters of class room, laboratory, studio, workshop and field activities in the Institute and a semester for Student Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES). Each semester shall be composed of seventeen (17) weeks duration made up as follows:
- 15 contact weeks of teaching, i.e lecture, recitation and practical exercise, etc and
- 2 weeks for test, quizzes, examination and registration. SIWES shall take place at the end of the second semester of the first year for the ND programme.
CONDITIONS FOR THE AWARD OF THE NATIONAL DIPLOMA
Students offering programmes in School of Engineering is expected to fulfill all academic requirements. The Institute will be awarding the National Diploma to candidates who successfully completed the programme after passing prescribed course work, examination, diploma project and the supervised industrial work experience. Such candidates should have completed a minimum of between 65 – 75 semester credit units depending on the programme.
Diploma shall be classified as follows:
- Distinction – GPA of 3.50 – 4.00
- Upper Credit – GPA of 3.00 – 3.49
- Lower Credit – GPA of 2.50 – 2.99
- Pass – GPA of 2.00 – 2.49
- Fail – GPA of below 2.00
It is therefore important to note that the National Diploma (ND) programme is terminal and candidates graduating from the programme should be able to perform at that level. Each Diploma programme is expected to run for 4 semesters of 17 weeks.
