NUC Accreditation Teams Laud Covenant on Biology, Psychology, Chemical and Petroleum Engineering Programmes
The National Universities Commission (NUC) teams on an accreditation visit to four programmes of Covenant University – Biology, Psychology, Chemical Engineering and Petroleum Engineering – have commended the University on the provisions made for running the programmes.
The interim reports read by leaders of the four respective teams to the Management of Covenant on Friday, November 24, 2017, were unanimous in their assessments that the provisions made were good and satisfactory.
The team leaders were Professor Edaka Uyoh (Biology), Professor Felix Oluwatelure (Psychology), Professor Felix Aisien (Chemical Engineering) and Professor Adewale Dosunmu (Petroleum Engineering)
According to the aggregate of their reports, the academic content, philosophy and objectives of the programmes are within the limit of the NUC benchmark; the laboratories and equipment are state-of-the-art and adequate; the library is of very good standard; and the University meets her financial obligation to the programmes.
Furthermore, they agreed that the curricula conform substantially to the principles, precepts and theories one would expect in the programmes; there is adequate complement of quality faculty and support staff; admission requirements are in line with NUC laid down standards; academic regulations are accessible to students; and the existence of a largely good external examiner system.
While thanking the Management of Covenant for its hospitality, the team leaders said that members of their teams were glad to be exposed to the beautiful facilities at Covenant University.
In his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor, Covenant University, Professor AAA. Atayero, appreciated members of the NUC accreditation teams for the quality job done in such a short time, adding that the comments made by the team leaders showed the depth of the exercise.
