Brief History:

Dr. Wasiu Oyediran Adedeji



The Department of Mechanical Engineering is one of the most versatile Departments as far as faculty of Engineering is concerned. Although, Civil Engineering Department is one of the foundation Departments in Osun state University since 2007, Mechanical Engineering staffs had been part of the Civil Engineering Department. The Mechanical Engineering Department was carved out after resource verification by the National University Commission (NUC) and Council for Regulation of engineers in Nigeria (COREN). The University was permitted to commence the Mechanical Engineering courses in 2013. The first set of admitted students came onboard and hence lecture started.

The Department runs a 5-year programme, operating 2-semester course units systems in its curriculum that leads to the awards of Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) degree in Mechanical Engineering.  The 5-year duration is expected to progress from year-one (100 level) through year-five (500 level).  Each year is divided into two semesters (Harmattan and Rain), each of 17-18 weeks duration. 

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. The curricula for the programme are being regularly revised. The last revision took place in 2015 to bring the programme contents in line with Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS) by the National Universities Commission (NUC) and Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN).

During the past 3 years, the Department has produced over 79 graduates. While many of these graduates are currently doing well in government and private establishments, some have since obtained higher degrees and are in various institutions as members of faculty. Those in industries and private establishment are holding good positions in the public and private sectors of the economy.
