Telecommunication Engineering in Nigeria is one of those rare disciplines in that only a few universities offer them. However, in this post, you will see the list of Universities that enrol students for Telecommunication Engineering studies in Nigeria.
It is also wise to note that aside from these schools that offer these degrees in our higher institutions, there are quite a good number of online universities alongside open universities that still award the degree in different capacities.
While searching for schools that offer telecommunication engineering in Nigeria, there are just a few guides that are meant to keep students and guardians guided their choices of institutions. They include these questions:
- Are the schools accredited by the NUC?
- What has been the history of these institutions
- What do you need to study Telecommunication in a Nigerian University?
- What are the requirements to graduate as a telecommunication engineer in Nigeria?
- Schools that offer Master degree Programmes in Telecommunication Engineering (in Nigeria)
- Can I continue till my PhD in Telecommunication Engineering?
- Opportunities to Study telecommunication Engineering abroad
When you are sure of these reasons, taking courses in most of these Universities becomes commendable. Some of these questions, however, do not require immediate answers before to proceed with seeking admission into schools in Nigeria, but it is our recommendation that those with accreditation gains interest.
NUC Accreditation is necessary for the credibility of the university, so universities without NUC accreditation is strongly advised not to be entered for undergraduate, masters and postgraduate program.
WHAT IS NUC?
The National university commission is a national body that monitors and evaluates university infrastructural, academic and other strengths in Nigeria, to ensure the absolute delivery of quality education. Over the years, schools have been approved and disapproved by this institution due to one or more reasons, ranging from their inability to employ the most qualifies lecturers, to build the needed laboratories etc. On the other hands, these could be likened to the efforts of the education ministries, in salvaging the image of education in Nigeria. As prospective students, these factors above should serve as your guiding objective while making choices of your institutions in Nigeria.
