The College of Engineering and Technology, Kwara State University, aims to educate the next generation of scientists, technologists and engineers with the capacity to solve real problems and provide leadership that can lead to the economic and social transformation of Kwara State and the world at large. As such, the goal is to promote a strong foundation in “the fundamentals”, a deep understanding of the research frontiers within an interdisciplinary framework, and an orientation towards entrepreneurship and/or service that can lead to the continuous development of the graduates.
At the undergraduate level, our goal is to provide the best and the brightest students with an interdisciplinary education, while preparing them for future leadership and success in the game of life. The curriculum is not limited to excellence in mathematics, science and engineering, but blended with requirements in ethics and philosophy, arts and culture, as well as business and finance. It is also intended to provide a means whereby students, while acquiring knowledge of engineering methods, can pursue their interests in areas of natural and environmental science.
Every undergraduate student will be required to engage in community service and wherever possible, industrial attachment that will prepare them to work in the real world. The students will also be required to prepare a one year long senior thesis/project that will expose them to research methodologies.
