Dr Odejobi O.A.

HOD’S Welcome Address

Today, we live in a knowledge society where computers are pervasive, and impact on almost all aspects of modern life. Computers and the internet has changed the way we work, learn and communicate; it is only the beginning of a new revolution as the potential of IT has not yet been fully realized especially in Nigeria. This is an exciting time for Computer Scientist as the discipline is now an essential source of tools and technique for advancement in almost all spheres of human endeavor. As a result the need for knowledgeable Computer Science and Engineering graduates has increased dramatically, and the current breakthrough in IT has rapidly led to skill shortages across the IT sector.

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Obafemi Awolowo University is the largest of such Department in the country. Our students are prepared for rewarding and flexible careers. We offer a very broad range of courses spanning almost all aspects of Computer Science and Engineering leading to B.Sc. Computer Engineering, B.Sc. Computer Science and B.Sc. Computer Science with Economics degree at Undergraduate levels. Other courses leading to strong academic and business oriented programs are also offered at Postgraduate levels in Computer Science. The Department do not only train young minds into professionals, but also inculcate discipline required for real life sustenance as allusion to the University’s motto “For Learning and Culture” . so they are encouraged to eschew violence, embrace honesty and modesty, and also make academics their priority while on Campus.

We collaborate with industry which is an indication that our degree programs are leading edge; graduates from the Department are well prepared for the challenges of the dynamic and fast growing software, hardware and in fact, the entire IT industry. Our graduates are very well received by industry employers and have consistently been well placed.

I am honoured to work with over 28 elite academic staff, over 10 skillful support staff, and an active dynamic student body on the most beautiful campus in Africa. The staff are well recognized for their contributions and are always ready to provide quality education with solid fundamentals and skills in cutting-edge technologies to promote competitiveness, advance knowledge in Computer Science and Engineering through high quality and impact research, and to p-lay leading roles in our world of influence- industry, community, and government in education and technology. Of particular relevance to our department is the support for diversity. As the head of Department of  Computer Science and Engineering , I look forward to carrying on the tradition of excellence that was laid by its predecessor, while the department pride itself as a home for high quality education and research, and as always a home for our students, alumni and our friends. I am optimistic that this session will experience an unprecedented achievement and opportunities as students, and staff in the Department will work together to build an even stronger Department. I believe the department has the power to mold a bright future for our students and ability to create a high quality life for those living and working in our global community

I encourage our alumni and friends, especially in the industry, to take an active part in the expansion of our commitment to Excellency and diversity. Nationally, we face challenges that are urgent and complex, Alumni and industry are crucial to the continued growth of and research through time spent mentoring students and staffs who are involved in providing solutions to those challenges.

This handbook describes the ranges of the courses covered in the Department, together with information that guide you as you navigate Obafemi Awolowo University through Computer Science and Engineering and allied Departments.

It is with great joy that I welcome you all both, fresh and returning undergraduates, to the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Obafemi Awolowo University, The first and leading Computer Science and Engineering Department in Nigeria
