BRIEF HISTORY OF THE HEAD OF DEPATMENT
Nuraini Sunusi Ma’aji is an Electrical Engineer who did his undergraduate studies at Kano University of Science and Technology Wudil, his MSc in Energy System Engineering at Cyprus International University, Cyprus. He started his professional career in 2013 at the National Youth Service Corps where he served with the Federal Capital Development Authority, Abuja Nigeria. In the year 2015, he joined MBS Engineering Limited as a clerk of works for the 2 x 6MW Challawa Hydroelectric power project and gained vast experience in project monitoring and inspection. Subsequently, he was assigned as an Electrical Engineer for the sustainable building services design and development. He is currently working as lecturer II at the Nigerian Army University, Biu.
The Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department of the Nigerian Army University, Biu, offers undergraduate degree program leading to the award of B. Eng. (Hons) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The undergraduate programme is designed to ensure that graduates of the department acquire the breadth of knowledge necessary for technological innovation. The programme is also designed to ensure that undergraduate students pursue the same Electrical and Electronic Engineering courses that will enable them to qualify as Electrical and Electronic Engineers, up to the end of the fourth year before branching out for one year of further in-depth study in a chosen area of specialization. Professional options currently offered in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering are CONTROL AND INSTRUMENTATIONS, ELECTRONIC AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS, POWER AND ELECTRIC MACHINE.
MISSION AND VISION
To continuously strive hard and cope with the evolving technology around the electrical and electronic engineering, in order to make the department of world class standard.
The general philosophy of the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department is to produce graduates with high academic standards. Technological know-how and adequate practical background such that they are of immediate value to industry and the nation. All departments are pragmatic in order to turn out engineers capable of solving local Nigerian problems in addition to global challenges that they might be confronted with.
AIM AND OBJECTIVES
The overall aim of the programme is in consonance with the realization of the national need and aspiration vis-à-vis provision of know-how for Nigerian Army, industrial development, and technical emancipation. The programme gives the minimum academic standards required to meet this need and to produce graduate with sufficient academic background and practical experience who would be able to rise to the challenges of a developing economy like ours.
The objectives of the programme include:
⦁ To produce graduates with high academic standard coupled with adequate practical experience, who can meet the challenges of a developing economy and sufficiently tackle common day-to-day engineering problems.
⦁ To provide regular and updated programs and courses in all the fields of Electrical and Electronics Engineering of a standard required and expected of a Department and University of the highest standing.
⦁ To educate and equip students with the technical knowledge, skills and competencies to analyse, design, develop, test and produce Electrical and Electronics Engineering products and services for the benefit of humanity.
⦁ To promote research and the advancement of all fields of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
⦁ To produce graduates with broad-based knowledge in general studies, management and humanities, all of which enhance their understanding, contribution and relevance to the society.
