We are creating an extraordinary and unique student. Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife is one of three Universities established in Nigeria. We not only want to improve our students’ lives, but we also hope to contribute to the cause of education on every continent.
We believe that education should take into account everything students experience during each moment of their time at school.
The Division of Students’ Affairs has Professional Counselors who are committed to helping students grow in self-understanding in the process of integrating their personal and academic experiences.
The undergraduate programme is designed to produce graduates that can be more readily absorbed into the various areas of the rapidly developing fields of Electronic and Electrical Engineering.
There are four areas of specialization in the Department viz: Electrical Power Engineering, Communications, Control and Instrumentation, and Materials Science and Devices Technology.
The Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering was carved out of the then Department of Physics and Applied Physics. (The Applied Physics Section has now been replaced by Engineering Physics). The founding head of the Department was the late Professor Victor A. Williams
