COREN Accredits  engineering programmes for Edo varsity

Council for the Regulations of Engineers in Nigeria (COREN) has accredited all engineering programmes currently offered by Edo University, Iyamho, and affirmed that the institution is well suited to train undergraduate, who will, in turn, become qualified engineers.

COREN President, Engr. Kashim Abdul Ali, who disclosed this during a tour at the university, commended the management for its standard of education, academic programmes and state-of-the-art facilities.

Engr Ali said it was the responsibility of COREN to accredit engineering programmes in Nigerian universities, adding that “the engineering programmes have met the basic requirements” of the council.

He expressed satisfaction over the state-of-the-art facilities available at the university, which he said could best be compared with any facility in the world.

On his part, the institution’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Emmanuel Aluyor, promised that the school would put more efforts to ensure it maintained their academic standard.

  1. State-of-the-art interms of facilities is an ambitious statement. There are developments going on daily in the profession. COREN should be reviewed into a Taskforce or Extra-ministerial Agency of government, a Lawyer has no professional competence nor moral justification to superintend over Engineers/Engineering. Even if the Works Minister was an Engineer, a regulatory body with inter-ministerial mandate cannot be subject to one Ministry. As currently constituted, it means the Ministers of Education, Science and Technology, Agriculture, etc in-which COREN has regulatory mandates are all subject to the whims and caprices of the Works Minister.
    Finally, is it Council for the Regulation of ‘Engineers’ (human beings) or ‘Engineering’ (a profession)? For me, it should be the later.

Engineering programmes should be synchronized around the country for faculties to network and share resources.
