Core Values


Welcome to the Department of Aerospace Engineering which is the primary field of engineering concerned with the design, development, testing, and production of aircraft, spacecraft, and related systems and equipment. The field has traditionally focused on problems related to atmospheric and space flight, with two major and overlapping branches: aeronautical engineering and astronautical engineering. Here, we never stop learning, remember you are not just aerospace engineering students; you are also citizens of the world and most importantly human beings, so in everything you do, always strive to make this world a better place for everyone. Above all, reach for your dreams and live your life to the fullest. We are extremely proud of you and wish you all the best in this new journey of life.


Our mission is to empower students with a deep understanding of aerospace engineering fundamentals, including aerodynamics, propulsion systems, materials science, and structural analysis. We aim to foster innovative thinking, problem-solving skills, and a commitment to lifelong learning, enabling our graduates to make significant contributions to the aerospace industry and society as a whole.

Core Values

Core Values:
  1. Excellence: Adherence to the highest international standards.
  2. Innovation: Supports creative activities.
  3. Inclusiveness: To show respect for ethics, cultural, religious diversity and freedom of thought.
We believe that aerospace engineering education should be:
  1. Interdisciplinary: integrating knowledge from mathematics, physics, materials science, and computer science to tackle complex aerospace challenges.
  2. Practical: emphasizing hands-on experience, experimental learning, and real-world applications to develop problem-solving skills and critical thinking.
  3. Innovative: encouraging creativity, entrepreneurship, and innovative thinking to drive advancements in aerospace technology.
  4. Global: preparing students for international collaboration, cultural awareness, and leadership in the global aerospace community.
  5. Ethical: instilling a commitment to safety, sustainability, and social responsibility in the design, development, and operation of aerospace systems.
Upon graduating from our B.Eng in Aerospace Engineering program, students will be able to:
  1. Apply fundamental principles: of aerodynamics, propulsion, materials, and structures to analyze and design aerospace systems.
  2. Think critically: and solve complex problems using mathematical and computational tools.
  3. Communicate effectively: technical ideas and solutions to diverse audiences.
  4. Collaborate: in multidisciplinary teams to achieve common goals.
  5. Pursue lifelong learning: staying up-to-date with emerging technologies and advancements in aerospace engineering.
  6. Demonstrate professionalism: and ethical conduct in their careers, considering the social and environmental impact of their work.
Strategic Goals:

Is to nurture, build diligent and dedicated community of aerospace engineers providing a professional and thus justifying the purpose of teaching and satisfying the stakeholders.

Aerospace engineers develop leading-edge technologies and integrate them into aerospace vehicle systems used for transportation, communications, exploration, and defence applications. This involves the design and manufacturing of aircraft, spacecraft, propulsion systems, satellites, and missiles, as well as the design and testing of aircraft and aerospace products, components, and subassemblies.

Successful aerospace engineers possess in-depth skills in, and an understanding of, aerodynamics, materials and structures, propulsion, vehicle dynamics and control, and software.

Basic Admission Requirements and Expected Duration of the Programmes

Candidates can be admitted into any of the degree programmes in Science by one of the following three ways:

  1. The Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME)
  2. Direct Entry
  3. Inter-University Transfer

UTME Entry Mode

The minimum academic requirement is credit level passes in five (5) subjects at O’Level innationally recognised examination including English Language, Mathematics and three other Science subjects which are relevant to the intended programme at not more than two sittings. In addition, an acceptable pass in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) with relevant subject combination is also required for admission into 100 Level.

Direct Entry Mode

Candidates seeking admission into a programme in Science through Direct Entry must havepasses at GCE ‘A’ Level/IJMB or its equivalent in a minimum of two (2) Science subjects relevant to the intended programme to be considered for admission into 200 Level. This isin addition to fulfilling the requirement of a minimum of credit level passes in five (5) relevant subjects at ‘O’ Level as indicated above.

Inter-University Transfer Mode

Students can transfer into 200-Level courses provided they have the relevant qualifications.Universities are to certify that students meet the minimum requirements for the Inter- University Transfer.

Minimum Duration

The minimum duration of science programmes is four (4) academic sessions for candidates whoenter through the UTME Mode. Direct Entry candidates admitted into the 200 level of their programmes will spend a minimum of three (3) academic sessions.
