overview


    

You are welcome to the Department of Electrical/Electronic Engineering, a department that has produced a team of resourceful professionals for both private and public sectors of the national economy and the world at large. The achievement of this feat is credited to the vision and mission statements of the Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro. The department continues to explore new grounds towards supplying manpower requirements to drive the national industrial growth. It is one of the six departments established at the inception of the Institution in 1979/80 academic session while running a four (4) year Nigerian National Diploma (NND) programme. Her enrolment then was twenty-two (22). Presently, two major programmes are available in the department, each being run for a minimum of four (4) semesters. These programmes are National Diploma (ND) and Higher National Diploma (HND) programmes respectively. Options available at the HND programme include: • Power and Machines • Electronic and Telecommunications • Control and Instrumentation Graduates of the department are in various establishments contributing to the national economy.
