OVERVIEW

The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nigerian Defence Academy, Kaduna, Nigeria was established in September 1988, but academic activities commenced a year later.  The general philosophy of the department is to produce graduate military officers with high academic standard and adequate background and of immediate value to the needs of the military in particular, industry and nation in general.

The department provides comprehensive high quality education to help the students acquire knowledge, analytical and critical thinking skills.  It sensitizes the students to the ever increasing needs of the society and prepares them for the challenges of a rapidly changing world.  Our programme is designed and offered with the highest quality standards.  As an evidence to mark this quality, the programme is accredited by the National Universities Commission (NUC) and the Council for the Regulation of Engineering Practice in Nigeria (COREN).  This speaks volumes of the quality of our programme, the laboratory facilities and learning resources available to our students and the quality of our dedicated staff that you will enjoy learning from and interacting with.

GENERAL INFORMATION

In 1988, the Board of NDA approved the establishment of a Faculty of Engineering & Technology with the Department of Electrical/Electronic Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.  The Departments were to offer courses leading to the award of Bachelor of Engineering (B. Eng) in their relevant areas. Sequel to this approval, the Commandant of NDA visited the Nigerian Air Force Technical Group (NAFTTG) and toured their Laboratories and Workshops. It was found that the workshop facilities in the Academy and to some extent the Laboratories in NAF TTG were suitable for the proposed engineering programme of the Academy.  Consequently, the Commandant directed that arrangements be made to start the teaching of engineering courses in NDA in September 1989.

The Department of Electrical/Electronic Engineering commenced the teaching of courses in September 1989.  The programme is of the semester system. Since inception about 850 graduates have produced, out of which about 10 finished with First Class Degree.

 The Department moved to the permanent site in 2008 and is at present located in the Faculty of Engineering & Technology Complex. Facilities in the Department include adequately equipped Basic Electrical/Electronics Laboratory, Telecommunications Laboratory, Machines/Power Laboratory, Software Laboratory and Mechanical Workshop catering for the 200,300 and 400 level cadets. With the movement of the Department to the permanent site in 2008, availability of enhanced physical facilities has greatly contributed in achieving higher scope of teaching and research activities.

PHILOSOPHY OF THE PROGRAMME

The Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering was established in 1988 and activities commenced in the Department in September 1989. The objectives of the programme are to produce Engineering Officers with sufficient academic background coupled with sufficient practical experience.

The general philosophy of the programme is to produce graduate military officers with high academic standard and adequate background and of immediate value to the needs of the military in particular, industry and nation in general. 

To achieve the above aim, the Electrical/Electrical Engineering training programme is tailored towards realizing the following objectives:

  1.  Ability to design engineering projects supervises construction process, operate and maintain such schemes. Investigate and evaluate various Electrical/Electronic Engineering structures/projects.
  2. Install and maintain Electrical/Electrical Engineering system so that they can perform optimally in peace and war time environment.
  3.  Adopt and adapt exogenous technology in order to solve local Electrical/Electronic Engineering problems.
  4. Provide technical and management leadership for needs of the armed forces and professional level.
  5. Apply the fundamental principle methods of analysis and design to the development and modification of war like items. 

A Graduate Officer should be able to perform the following functions:

  1. Design engineering projects and supervise their construction. Conduct maintenance study, investigate and evaluate various Electrical and/or Electronics System.
  2. Install and maintain complex engineering systems so that they can perform optimally in peace and war time environment.
  3. Adapt and adopt indigenous technology in order to solve local engineering problems.
  4. Apply the fundamental principles, methods of analysis and design to the development and modification of war-like items.
  5. Provide technical and managerial leadership for the needs of the Armed Forces at professional levels.

ACADEMIC DEGREE PROGRAMMES

The Department offers the following degree programmes:

  1. B.Eng Electrical/Electronic Engineering for officers Cadet
  2. Post Graduate Diploma in Electrical Engineering PGDEE
  3. Masters in Engineering M.Eng in Electrical/Electronic Engineering with options in

              (a) Telecommunications Engineering

              (b) Power Systems and Machine

  1. Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical /Electronic Engineering with options in

          (a)Telecommunications Engineering

          (b)Power Systems and Machine

The minimum requirements for admission into the B.Eng Degree programme in Electrical/Electronic Engineering in NDA are similar to those of other Federal Universities in Nigeria. Candidates must have at least 5 credits in no more than two (2) sittings in science subjects which must include English Language, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry at the Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE/NECO/GCE) or its equivalent. All awaiting results candidates are therefore not eligible for admission into the academy Academy and only (WASSCE/NECO/GCE) of not more than five (5) years old shall be accepted for admission.

Additionally, all candidates must sit for the UTME and also the NDA entrance examinations. Only students who meet the minimum cut of mark at UTME shall be allowed to sit for the NDA entrance exams.

Furthermore, all candidates must be at least sixteen (16) years old and not more than twenty-one (21) as at the time of application into the academy. 

The Department is headed by the Head of Department (HOD) who oversees the daily activities of the Department and is directly responsible to the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Technology. Various committees are put in place for the smooth running of the activities in the Department. The Chief Technologist oversees the activities in the laboratories while the Departmental Secretary heads the Administrative Cadre. The organizational structure of the department of Electrical / Electronic Engineering is as shown below in Figure 1.
