COREN endorses Covenant varsity's engineering programmes

COREN endorses Covenant varsity's engineering programmes

The Council for the Reg­ulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) has given the engineering pro­grammes of Covenant Univer­sity, Ota, a clean bill of health few weeks after a team from the council paid a re-accred­itation visit to the institution.
COREN in a letter ad­dressed to the Vice-Chancel­lor, Prof A.A.A. Atayero, con­veyed the council’s approval of the university’s undergrad­uate engineering programmes, which include; Information Communication Engineer­ing and Chemical Engineer­ing. Both programmes were granted full accreditation, which has a five-year validi­ty period.
The letter, signed by the Registrar of COREN, Kamila Maliki, states that there would be random visits by represen­tatives of the council to the university within the validity period to check the state of fa­cilities, while urging the insti­tution to ensure that standards are not only maintained, but improved.
A COREN team led by Ju­lius Olurinola had between October 30 and November 3, 2016 paid a re-accreditation visitation to the university.
Olurinola had at a meeting with the management of the university stated that, “We (COREN) are aware that you have taken engineering as a priority, Covenant University will reach the pinnacle with devotion to improving engi­neering programmes.”
Responding, Atayero de­scribed the re-accreditation visit as an objective exercise, adding that: “We are bench marking with the best univer­sities in the world to make sure we arrive at our desired des­tination. The most important issue is quality and we are not compromising on that.”
COREN had also in 2012 granted full accreditation status to other engineering programmes of the univer­sity such as Mechanical Engi­neering, Electrical/Electronic Engineering, Computer En­gineering, Petroleum Engi­neering and Civil Engineering.
