AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY DEPARTMENT

The programme in the department is developed to meet the needs of modern diagnosis and maintenance for new generation vehicles. The trainees are exposed to sound theoretical tutorials on the operations of the car systems and hand-on practical demonstration sessions where they are equipped with skills to diagnose and rectify problems using standard working procedures. Divided into Auto Mechanical and Auto Mechatronics sections, the Automotive Technology Department delivers a training that is competence-oriented, employment-driven and outcome-based using a competence-based curriculum that supports the trainees’ cognitive abilities. The trainees usually undergo industrial attachments at various stages of the training program, aimed at exposing them to real life cases of modern vehicle maintenance. Our objectives in the department are to produce for the Nigerian Automobile Industry, highly skilled middle-level manpower in the maintenance sub-sector who will contribute meaningfully to the society and also contribute towards standardizing the auto maintenance practice in Nigeria.
