The Dean of the University
College of Engineering
(COLENG), Professor Samuel
Adejuyigbe has described the
palpable fear of having to pass
Physics, Mathematics and
Chemistry as a major reason
why young school leavers don’t
study Engineering courses in
the nation’s tertiary
institutions.
Fielding questions from
FUNAAB Bulletin after the
visit of the Accreditation
Team of the National
Universities Commission (NUC)
to COLENG, Prof. Adejuyigbe
said female students are worst
hit by the development.
According to him, “I think the
problem is that when you are
coming for Engineering, you
have to know Physics,
Mathematics and Chemistry”.
“Our young school leavers,
especially young ladies see
these subjects as very
difficult to pass, and as such,
they run away from it”, he
added.
The Dean however pointed out
that, “we have encouraging
them and some of them are
coming into Engineering
profession”.
Commenting on the outcome of
the visit of NUC Accreditation
Team to COLENG, Professor
Adejuyigbe said, “I think it is a
good one. It keeps the
universities on their toes”.
