The maximum length of time allowed to obtain a degree in the College shall be fourteen semester for the 5year degree programme and twenty semesters for students admitted directly into the 200 level. For extension beyond the maximum period, a special permission of Senate shall be required on the recommendation of the College Board.
A student whose Cumulative Grade Point Average is below 1.00 at the end of a particular year of study, earns a period of probatiob for one academic session. A student on probation is allowed to register for courses at the next higher level in addition to his/her probation level courses provided that: The maximum of 18 credit units per semester is not exceeded.
(a) the regulation in respect of student workload is complied with; and
(b) the prerequisite courses for the higher level courses have been passed.
(c) Universities are enjoined to run comparable syllabi to enable students who transfer from
One University to another transfer their credits wholly.
A candidate whose Cumulative Grade Point Average is below 1.00 at the end of a particular year of probation should be required to withdraw from the University. However in order to minimise waste of human resources, consideration is usually given to withdrawal from programme of study and possible transfer to other programmes within the University.
Grading of courses shall be done by a combination of percentage marks and letter grades translated into a graduated system of Grade Point Equivalents (GPE). For the purpose of determining a student’s standing at the end of evcery semester, the Grade Point Average (GPA) system shall be used. The GPA is computed by dividing the total number of credit points (TCP) by the total number of units (TNU) for all the courses taken in the semester. The credit point for a course is computed by multiplying the number of units for the course by the Grdae Point Equivalent of the marks scored in the course. Each course

Revised programme for the Department which took effect from the 2009/2010 academic session is
(a) UNDERGRADUATE ACADEMIC PROGRAMME FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICAL/ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING
(b) AIMS, OBJECTIVES AND PHILOSOPHY
The Bachelor of Engineering Programme offered by the Department of Electrical/Electronics Engineering is designed to produce first class degree Electrical/Electronics Engineering graduate armed with adequate theoretical knowledge and practical experience for successful and fruitful career in Electrical/Electronics Engineering. To achieve this, the programme is designed as follows:
For each semester, in the two semester academic year of 15 weeks per semester, a student on the programme normally carries 18 credit units of academic load of entirely theoretically courses on one hand and entirely laboratory courses on the other.
In addition to the laboratory courses/exercises, there is students’ Practical Work Experience which includes the second year activity of extensive operation and the uses of the Engineering equipments, machines and tools to realize design prototypes as well as two long vacations and one semester of Industrial Work Experience in the third and fourth years of the programme. The workshop practice in the faculty of Engineering workshops prepares the studentsfor the Industrial Work Experience (in skill and industrial practice).
The first and second years of the programme is also designed to make the students deepen and strength their basic knowledge in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Social Science, Electrical/Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering and Computer Programming. The broad based knowledge in the above named disciplines enhances the practice of Electrical/Electronics Engineering in relation to these other disciplines.
In the third, fourth, and fifth years of the programme, the students are made to spend most of their study time on the major areas of Electrical Engineering while at the same offering them advanced courses in Mathematical, Computational and Programming methods which constitute a vital and an indispensable in efficient and productive engineering practice. These major areas comprise Electrical Machines, Electronics, power systems, power electronics, communications, control engineering, electromagnetic fields. All coupled with well designed supplementary courses in Instrumentation and computers. The final year (5th year) study programme also includes a final year project electives to further deepen the students’ research capabilities and selectable electives to further deepen the students’ knowledge in the above named specialist areas in Electrical/Electronics Engineering for the final year project and each student is required to submit a project report and may be orally examined on the report.
Attempt is made to have optimum time sharing in the different modes of teaching the course. In the theoretical courses, there is one hour of tutorial for every four hours of lecture. To reflect the importance of practical exercises in the programme, 9 hours per week is averagely devoted to practical exercises out of a total of 24 contact hours per week for lectures, tutorials and practical work.
The grading system is designed such that students final percentage grade in a given course is shared between continuous assessment and endof semester final examination. For entirely theoretical courses, continuous assessment ( Quizzes, tutorials, Homework, Tests) constitute 30% of the final percentage grade while the final examination makes up the remaining 70 percent . for entirely laboratory course, laboratory exercises and the reports constitute 100% of the final grade.
A students final grade in a course and overall performance in the degree programme are based on the five point system tabulated as follows.
