BRIEF HISTORY OF THE DEPARTMENT

The Department of Civil Engineering of the Osun State University is one of the two engineering departments under the College of Science, Engineering and Technology established in 2007/2008 academic session as part of the first phase of development of the University.

 The Department runs a 5-year undergraduate programme, operating 2-semester course units in its curriculum to acquaint the students with the basic knowledge, practices and current advances in the field of Civil Engineering. Civil Engineering is concerned with the planning, design, construction, maintenance and environmental impact of buildings, roads, airports, waterways, railways, bridges, tunnels, docks, offshore structure, dams, water supply, drainage and irrigation systems/schemes, and other major works.

The programme in civil engineering is therefore designed to produce engineers that can meet the challenges in the afore-mentioned areas through service in governmental agencies/establishments, the building and construction industry, transportation industry, consulting firms, teaching and research organizations. The two semesters in the calendar of the University, tagged Harmattan and Rain), each has 17-18 weeks duration. The programme leads to the awards of Bachelor of Engineering (B. Eng.) degree in Civil Engineering.

The academic programme of the Department operates academic curricular that are tailored along the stipulations contained in the National Universities Commission (NUC) Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards and as required by the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria, COREN.
