Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is concerned with the management of people and resources, the creation and use of new technologies and the design and development of new processes and products. This mostly involves ‘things that move’, such as motor vehicles, aircraft systems, engines, pumps, gas turbines, industrial plants, air-conditioning/refrigeration systems, manufacturing procedures, building inspection and repairs and even space stations. Due to its broadly based discipline, you are trained for careers in many industrial sectors, including such various areas as Energy, Chemical Processing, Research, Manufacturing, Design Consultancy, Materials Processing and Aviation. The following happens at Covenant Univesity: a) You will acquire experience in technical analysis, operation and maintenance of equipment and systems. b) You will discover how to turn energy into power and motion and learn to design, create, improve and maintain systems and machinery. c) You will also study design, fluid mechanics and dynamics, solids modelling, materials and manufacturing, instrumentation and control, thermodynamics and stress analysis. d)  In the end, your experiences in this programme will aid you in solving real world problems in technical analysis, operation and maintenance of equipment and systems.

Duration: 5years, Degree: B.Eng. Requirements: Candidates must in addition possess credit level passes in either Technical Drawing or Biology.  A credit Pass in Further Mathematics will be an added advantage.

Petroleum Engineering

The primary responsibilities of a petroleum engineer are producing oil, gasoline, and other fluid resources from the earth. This challenging study of engineering requires application of a broad range of knowledge—from the basic sciences of mathematics, physics, geology, and chemistry to the principles of engineering analysis, design, and management. Petroleum engineers provide the technical expertise to bring oil and natural gas from deep within the earth to the surface for delivery to processing facilities. They also focus on the efficient and safe extraction of fluids from their natural geological formations. This programme will concentrate on establishing a Petroleum Engineer.

Duration: 5years,  Degree: B.Eng. Requirements: Candidates must in addition possess credit level passes in either Further Mathematics or Technical Drawing or Biology.
