UNIPORT Engineering Faculty Secures COREN Accreditation

University of Port-Harcourt, UNIPORT Faculty of Engineering has secured Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) accreditation.

The Faculty of Engineering has survived the first hurdle in securing full accreditation for its programmes as the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN), has finally granted full accreditation to both Undergraduate and Graduate programmes which hadonly interim accreditation during the last exercise. With the outcome of the latest exercise in its favour, the Faculty of Engineering now has the nod of COREN to run its courses for the next five years.

Conveying the approval for Engineering programmes in a letter dated March 20, 2017, which was addressed to the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ndowa Lale, a copy of which was obtained by UniPort Weekly, Registrar of COREN, Engineer Wopa Kamila Maliki, disclosed that the approval which took effect from February 2, 2017 would last until February 2022. He further revealed that Petroleum and Gas, Civil, Electrical/Electronics, Chemical and Mechanical Engineering secured full accreditation for their Undergraduate programmes, while Petroleum and Gas, Chemical and Mechanical Engineering also secured full accreditation to mount Graduate programmes for the next five years.
“I write to convey the approval of the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN), on the accreditation visitation to the Undergraduate and Postgraduate Diploma Engineering programmes of your institution from 29th January to 2nd February, 2017.
“The effective date of the accreditation is 2nd February, 2017. It is necessary to point out that Full Accreditation is valid for (5) five years,” part of the letter read, pointing out that the Council would embark on random visits to the University within the validity period of the accreditation to assess the level of compliance to set standards.
Responding to the development, a visibly elated Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Professor Maureen Etebu, disclosed that the news of securing full accreditation status was well-received by staff and students of the Faculty. “The Faculty is rejoicing that it has secured accreditation from the apex regulatory body of our profession. At the last exercise, we secured interim accreditation, so what we needed was the full accreditation that we have just secured and we are very happy at this development that would now motivate staff and students to concentrate on academic excellence.

This is a clean bill that would enable us continue in our mandate of teaching, carrying out research and community service in the various fields of Engineering in this University,” Professor Etebu stated. She praised the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Lale for creating an enabling environment that brought the success story to her Faculty, promising to justify the support from the Management of the University.

NYSC Love! Engaged Corps Members Finally Wed (Photos)

It was a scenario of touching love tale when two corps members serving in Ebonyi State finally tied the knots in a colourful style.

A friend of the couple, Kmeks Otuya who shared the story of how the couple met on social media said:

When we arrived the NYSC Orientation Camp, at Old MacGregor College, Afikpo Ebonyi State, on October 28, 2015. We all came with the intention of serving our great nation Nigeria.

Hence we went about the rigorous activities of the camp, that lasted for 21 days. But something happened, two corps members from my Platoon (Platoon 2) actually became friends.

Then they became close friends and after the camp, they decided to move a step further by going into an intimate relationship and now..THEY HAVE DECIDED TO TIE THE KNOTS!!

Now Guess What? They will be joined in the same state where they are serving and of course. They are getting married during their service year.

Although the name of the couple was yet to be ascertained as at the time of compiling this report, the wedding was said to have eventually taken place at WDC (Women Development Centre), Ezza Road, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State on Saturday, September 10, 2016.

Their colleagues and other corps members celebrated them.

The State NYSC coordinator, other officials, corps members and other well wishers were also there to grace the occasion.
