Welcome Message

The department of Mechanical Engineering’s core mission is to address the most pressing needs of human society, with a particular emphasis on the fields of energy, transportation and health. It offers you a broad based degree with a sound grounding in engineering science focusing on quantitative, problem-solving, mechanical design and the opportunity to develop communication skills. Our degree programs give students the broad skill set they need to pursue their goals – whether that’s working as an engineer, founding a company, continuing on to a postgraduate study and research, or going to a professional school to study business and management. The department traces its origin prior to the founding of Ahmadu Bello University Zaria.
