Prof. Abdalla Adamu, the Vice-Chancellor of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), has stated that the present management is planning to set up a Faculty of Engineering for the university.

Speaking during a courtesy call to the new Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, on Tuesday in Abuja, the VC said that NOUN respects regulatory agencies and will not do anything without their input and considerations.

“We are moving from a static situation to a very active situation; with the support we are getting from the NUC, everything is possible.

“I am not being specific at the moment, but I will let you know that we set up a committee to look into the possibility of establishing a Faculty of Engineering.

“That committee has submitted its report and it will be tendered at the next senate meeting.

“At the same time, there are challenges with courses that require specific competences—laboratory courses, clinical courses, engineering courses-these are courses that require competences.’”
