SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING AND ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY (SEET)

ABOUT THE SCHOOL

 

The School of Engineering and Engineering Technology (SEET) was established in 1988, seven years after the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) came into existence. SEET is the fourth school to be established after the three foundational Schools of Agriculture and Agricultural Technology (SAAT), Earth and Mineral Science (SEMS) and pure and applied Science (SPAS) all of which were established in 1982.

 

DEPARTMENTS

 

When SEET was established, only three new departments were created namely Mechanical Engineering (MEE), Civil Engineering (CVE) and Electrical/Electronics engineering (EEE) while three others were pulled out of two existing school, Agricultural Engineering (AGE) was moved from SAAT to SEET while Metallurgical and Materials  Engineering (MM and Mining Engineering (MNE) were moved from SEMS to SEET. The School as at 1988 had six departments and academic activities commenced officially during 1989/1990 academic session.

 

SEET maintained the six Departments until the year 2016 when a new Department, Industrial and Production Engineering (IPE) was established from MEE Department and also a new Department, Computer Engineering (CPE) was carved out from EEE Department. Also, slight changes of some departments took place in 2015. Agricultural Engineering changed tonAgricultural and Environmental Engineering while Civil Engineering changed to Civil and Environmental Engineering to meet the yearnings of society.

 

PHILOSOPHY OF THE SCHOOL

 

The main philosophy behind establishing SEET is to train Engineering graduates that will be self-reliant and foster industrialization of their immediate environment, create opportunities that will engender development.

 

STUDENTS POPULATION

 

The population of students has grown significantly as the quest for University education has soared considerably. From a population of 336 in 1989/90 academic session, students’ enrollment has increased to 2980 as shown Table I.

 

Similarly, staff population has increased to meet the minimum requirements for manpower training and development in Engineering and technology. From a population of 32 in 1989/90, staff population has increased to 250 as shown in table 2. The school has had a coordinating dean and six substantive Dean since inception in 1989.
