According to a statement issued on Monday, Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof Abdulrasheed Na’allah, said the institution has formally submitted an invitation to NUC for accreditation, and assured that the university is fully ready for the exercise.
Mr Na’allah congratulated and commended all the students and staff of the school’s College of Engineering and Technology, particularly the Department of Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering for “their hard work and patience.
KWASU’s College of Engineering and Technology currently offers courses in Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Food, Agric & Biological Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering.
