Kaduna State University set to begin engineering and law programmes

The Vice Chancellor (VC) and his team visited the ongoing projects at the university’s permanent location because the Kaduna State University (KASU) is eager to begin offering courses in law and engineering.

In Kaduna state’s Igabi Local Government Area, at Rigachikun, is where the KASU permanent site is situated.

Following an inspection of the Faculty of Law and Engineering’s construction at the permanent site, the VC, Prof. Abdullahi Musa was pleased with the projects’ progress and expressed it.

According to Mr. Musa, “if the projects continue to move forward at their current rate, they will invite the relevant professional organizations, in particular the Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC), to the institution in six months to verify the institution’s resource availability before starting its law program.

He continued by saying that the institution would ask NUC and the Nigerian Council for Regulation of Engineering to evaluate their resources and facilities before beginning the engineering programs at KASU.

The VC expressed optimism that the education faculty would completely relocate to the permanent site by 2024, while noting that work on that move was also ongoing.

He commended the State Governor, Sen. Uba Sani, for getting the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to fund the Engineering faculty.

He also expressed gratitude to the Tertiary Education Trust Fund and other project financiers for their assistance in ensuring the establishment of the institution’s permanent site.

Additionally, Prof. Nasirudeen Usman, the institution’s law program’s consultant, stated that the NUC and Council for Legal Education serve as the subject’s primary regulators.

He clarified that each organization had its own requirements for the creation of legal programs.

As its consultant, Mr. Usman stated that he was there to inspect the project’s physical facilities and make sure they complied with the demands of the two bodies.

Therefore, he claimed that the projects had a good chance of starting a successful law program.

The current faculty of law at KASU is among the best you’ll find there, according to my visits to numerous academic institutions in Nigeria.

What needs to be done is to make sure that it is completed beyond just the physical structure, to include tools and softening of curriculum content types, and to have a law program that will meet the needs and aspirations of society, Usman said.

Additionally, Prof. Hycienth Aboh, provost of the College of Science, Computing, and Engineering at KASU, stated that the school planned to start off with five engineering programs before expanding it.

The current physical structure, according to Mr. Aboh, who also serves as the Engineering Program Consultant, will be adequate for its intended use. He also noted that the project is progressing according to plan.

He thanked the Central Bank of Nigeria for funding the Engineering Faculty and requested that it be outfitted when it was finished to help the program get off to a strong start.
