History of the Department

The Anambra State University of Science and Technology now Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University was established on 1st January 2000 by Law No. 13 of Anambra State Government. The University was established as a result of felt need to meet the educational yearnings of the teeming population of youths in Anambra State and its environs.

The Department of Civil Engineering was established during the 2000/2001 academic session as one of the foundation departments of the Faculty of Engineering and Environmental Sciences of Anambra State University of Science and Technology, Uli now Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University. The Department is housed within the Engineering complex at Uli Campus. Engr. S.C. Ezekafor is currently Head of the Department but the following were the former Heads of the Department: Dr. T.C. Ogwueleka, late Prof. G.U. Ojiako, Dr. L.C. Eme, Engr. P.C.K Okika, Engr. Dr. J.I. Obianyo, and Engr. Dr. I.E. Umoanyiagu.

The Department of Civil Engineering offers a five-year Programme leading to the award of the Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) in Civil Engineering. Higher degrees (PGD, M.Eng. and Ph.D.) commenced in 2007/2008 academic session. The developments in Civil Engineering Department over the years have been immense.

Philosophy and Objectives

The philosophy of the Civil Engineering Department, Anambra State University now Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University is to produce graduates of high academic standard with high and adequate practical and theoretical background of immediate value in the industry and the nation in general. This will help to meet up with the national goal and objectives of industrialization and self-reliance.

The objectives of the Programme are to produce Engineering graduates who shall possess the following attributes:

  1. To design Engineering projects and supervise their constructions.
  2. The ability to manage people’s fund, materials and equipment.
  • The ability to exercise original thought, have good professional judgment and be able to take responsibility for the direction of important tasks.
  1. The ability to improve on indigenous technology to enhance local problems solving capability.
  2. The ability to install and maintain complex Engineering systems so that they can perform optimally in an environment

The curriculum of the Department is therefore structured as follows:

  1. Foundation courses at 100 and 200 levels
  2. Broad-based background in Civil Engineering
  • Projects that have to do with technology, laboratory work and tutorials
  1. Design projects with bias towards local applications
  2. Adequate knowledge in the area of Engineering management, economics and law
  3. Six months of supervised industrial training during the second semester of the fourth year.
