Kwara State University Becomes the First University to Offer Aeronautical Engineering in Nigeria

Kwara State Becomes the First University to Offer Aeronautical Engineering

Hmmm! This is really nice! It is indeed a plus to the field of Engineering and the Kwara State University. History will never forget this. One of the most painful experiences of any student is studying an unaccredited course in a Nigerian university and discovering later. This news will no doubt take care of this and also add to the already existing options of engineering courses in the institution for new students to have a feel of the new aspect of engineering. It will also showcase the institution within and outside the country.

Are you yet to get the gist? Now to the crux of the matter.

The National Universities Commission (NUC), has approved Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering as a course in Kwara State University (KWASU). The one in a million news was made known by the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof AbdulRasheed Na'Allah in a press release by the university.

The statement reads:

The NUC has formally written the Kwara State University approving the University's full mode of Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering (B. Eng.) degree program.

I must congratulate all our students and staff in Engineering, especially the department of aeronautical and astronautical engineering for their hard work and patience, that have led to this great success.

By this news, KWASU has retained its record as the first-ever Nigerian University to institute a degree program in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering.

Our dear students and staff can be proud of their University! We have formally submitted an invitation to NUC for accreditation as we are fully ready for the NUC accreditation.”

According to
An aeronautic engineer is the individual who is responsible for the design, building and science of aircraft. The field is closely related to astronautical engineering; both aeronautical and astronautical engineering are branches of aerospace engineering. The topics involved in aeronautic engineering include propulsion, materials science, avionics and aerodynamics.

Aeronautical engineering then becomes the study of how aircraft are designed, constructed and powered, how they are used and how they are controlled for safe operation.

This is just a great news! Congrats KWASU!
