Our Philosophy

The underlying philosophy of the Computer Engineering programme revolves around the need to join the key players in the present revolution in the computing and digital world. The teaching and  research are based on sound academic foundation as well as practical orientation that will be sufficient to make them employable in the industries. The philosophy of the programme in Computer programme is to produce graduate Engineers that combine sound theoretical background with practical skills to enable them take up challenging positions in the engineering industries, public service and the academia directly and also to reach a level of practical sufficiency that would
enable them to be self-employed. This is in line with the University’s mission and vision “to be a globally competitive institution that produces entrepreneurial, innovative and ethical graduates” that possess “appropriate skills and knowledge for the development of the nation and global competitiveness”.


Elizade University was established in 2012 through due process of obtaining approval for the establishment of the University. After applying to the Federal Government of Nigeria through the National Universities Commission (NUC), the approval for the establishment of Elizade University was granted by the Federal Government of Nigeria on February 22, 2012. The approval was conveyed vide the Provisional License to operate as a Private University No. 46 dated February 28, 2012 issued by the National Universities Commission.

Following the approval of the Federal Government, the University started academic activities during the 2012/2013 academic session. The pioneer students of the university resumed on January 6, 2013. The Engineering Faculty at the Elizade University commenced in September, 2013 during the 2013/2014 academic session.
The Bachelor of Engineering programme in Computer Engineering took-off in the 2013/2014 academic session. As one of the pioneer departments in the Faculty of Engineering, the Department commenced academic activities at the beginning of 2013/2014 academic session.

Elizade University aims to attract the best and the brightest students in Nigeria and beyond. The main aim is to provide them with practical-oriented scientific, technological and arts education which shall make them self-reliant while preparing them for future leadership and success in their chosen careers in the highly competitive new knowledge society.


Aim and Objective


The Computer Engineering Programme Educational Objectives describe the expectations of our graduates after a few years of work experience by contributing to the society through modern technologies and practices. The objectives of the programme are to produce graduate Engineers;

  1. Develop graduates who possess a strong foundation in computer engineering principles and techniques, enabling them to solve complex problems and contribute to technological advancements. 
  2. Foster an entrepreneurial mindset among students, equipping them with the skills to identify opportunities, innovate, and transform ideas into successful ventures in the computer engineering industry.
  3. Cultivate a culture of research and innovation, encouraging students to engage in cutting-edge research and develop novel solutions to address the evolving challenges of the modern world.
  4. Promote collaborative and ethical practices, instilling in students the ability to work effectively in multidisciplinary teams, communicate ideas clearly, and uphold the highest professional and ethical standards. 
  5. Prepare graduates to be influential leaders in the field of computer engineering, by providing practical experiences, mentorship, and opportunities for professional growth, enabling them to make a significant impact on society and shape a better future through the power of computer engineering.

What we do


According to the Washington Accord Graduate Attributes adopted by the Washington Accord signatories, an engineer who is trained based on these attributes listed, can design solutions for complex problems based on the development of engineering activities that involve some or all the programme learning outcomes detailed below. These POs are the measurable statements that describe knowledge or skills that our students would achieve upon completion of their 5 Years Academic Program. All 12 POs defined in COREN Manual are encompassed in the POs of the Department.

PO1 - Engineering Knowledge

Apply knowledge of mathematics, natural and engineering, sciences, mechanical engineering fundamentals, and engineering principles to the solve complex engineering problems.

PO2 - Problem Analysis

Identify, formulate, conduct research literature, and analyse complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural and engineering sciences and principles.

PO3 - Design/Development of Solutions

Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.

PO4 – Investigation

Conduct investigation of complex engineering problems using research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.

PO5 - Modern Tool Usage

Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering problems, with an understanding of the limitations.

PO6 - The Engineer and Society

Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solutions to complex engineering problems.

PO7 - Environment and Sustainability

Understand and evaluate the sustainability and impact of professional engineering work in the solutions of complex engineering problems in societal and environmental contexts.

PO8 - Ethics

Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.

PO9 - Individual and Teamwork

Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multi-disciplinary settings.

PO10 - Communication

Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.

PO11 - Project Management

Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering management principles and economic decision making and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.

PO12 - Life Long Learning

Recognise the need for and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
