The Mechatronics Engineering (MEC) Department’s mission for undergraduate education is to provide a thorough education in Mechatronics Engineering with intensive training in mathematics and complimented by experimental hands-on engineering and technology through investigative laboratory work and classroom lecture/demonstrations, all of which would allow a graduate to function effectively in the industry or continue on to postgraduate school.


The philosophy of Mechatronics Engineering programme at Nile University of Nigeria, Abuja is geared towards:

  • The development of a thorough practice in Mechatronics Engineering training
  • Impacting broad-based training in Engineering and Technology at the early stages of the Programme
  • Development of practical application of Engineering, Technology and Manufacturing Processes
  • Achieve adequate training in human and organizational behaviour and management
  • Introduction of entrepreneurial education and training
  • Developing close association of the programme with industries in the world.

Career support

EE engineers may work on a diverse range of technologies from the smallest pocket devices to large supercomputers. EE engineers design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacturing of electrical systems, such as electric motors, radar systems, navigation systems, broadcast and communications systems and power generation systems. Many kinds of electronic equipment from portable music players to GPS devices pass through an EE engineer’s hands.

Sectoral Advisory Board

The Sectoral Advisory Board (SAB) was formed with the goal of creating a bridge between industry (private/public and national/international institutions) and academics considering the latest requirements of the industry and incorporating necessary components in the curriculum regarding overall development of the department.

Main Objectives of the SAB:

1- Development of 

a) Curriculum of the department 
b) Syllabus of the courses in the department
c) Institutional relationships

2- Increase the potential of

a) Internship
b) Scholarship 
c) Sponsorship

Roles and Responsibilities of the SAB:  
The roles and responsibilities of SAB are as follows:
The SAB develops and recommends new or revised programme goals and objectives.
The Sectoral Advisory Board advises the department head on matters related to undergraduate, postgraduate, research and outreach programs, including but not limited to curricula, accreditation, new programs, recruitment of students and faculty, and investment of resources. 


Structure of the SAB:

The SAB is composed of members from eminent institutions as well as members from industry and members of faculty of the department. The chairman of the Board is the head of the department.
