  • FORWARD
    The Department of Electrical/Electronic Engineering, Cross-River University of Technology, Calabar, started in the days of the College of Technology, Calabar, in 1973, When the College changed to the Polytechnic, Calabar, the department continued. This period spanned 29 years. In September 2002, the administration of Mr. Donald Duke merged four Institutions to become Cross-River University of Technology [CRUTECH], Calabar. The three (3) Institutions are 
    1. The Polytechnic, Calabar
    2. The College of Education, Akamkpa
    3. Ibrahim Babangida College of Agriculture, Obubra and 
    The facilities and experiences of the first two (2) of the above Institutions provided the technical background of the Electrical/Electronic Engineering Department.
    The Department of Electrical/Electronic Engineering was then established in 2002 in the Faculty of Engineering of the Cross River University of Technology, with the inception of the university, and continued to be located in Calabar. The initial enrollment of students in 2002 for the Bachelors Degree [B. ENG.] programme was one hundred and five students (105), and today this has increased.
     
    The staff strength of the department has grown and is presently made up of five Professors, three Senior Lecturers, two Lecturers 1, six Lecturers II, one Graduate Assistant. Also there are seven Technologists, who assist in laboratory and workshop demonstrations and training of students, one Senior Craftsman and four administrative staff, giving a total of twenty nine staff.
     
    The department of Electrical/Electronic Engineering is located in Calabar so also are the other Engineering departments i.e. Civil, Mechanical and Wood Products. 

    PHILOSOPHY
    The general philosophy of the Department is to produce engineering graduates of high academic standard, with adequate practical background and of immediate value to the industry and the nation in general. The envisaged programmes are of the sandwich type, in order to turn out engineers capable of solving local and international problems. In pursuance of the above, specific features have been incorporated into the programme. These include:
     
     Common foundation courses at 100 and 200 levels for all Engineering students
     Workshop practice, technology, laboratory work and tutorials
     Design projects with bias towards local application.
     Broad-based Engineering and intense interaction between students and Professionals.
     An independent Project in the final year in which the student works alone under the supervision of an academic staff.
     Special skills and in-depth study in a particular area of the programme through optional or elective courses.
     Adequate knowledge in the areas of Engineering Management, Economics and Law.
     
     
    AIMS/OBJECTIVES
    The general aims and objectives of engineering training should be in consonance with the realization of national needs and aspirations. The minimum standards are to meet these needs and to produce graduates in electrical engineering with sufficient academic background, coupled with sufficient practical experience and who are able to rise to the challenges of a developing economy. Such graduates in Engineering must therefore be resourceful, creative and able to perform the following functions: 
    He/She should be able to.
     Design engineering projects and supervise their construction
     Design and make components of machine equipment and systems.
     Design and develop new products and production techniques in industries.
     Install and maintain complex engineering systems so that they can perform optimally in our environment.
     Adapt and adopt exogenous technology in order to solve local engineering problems.
