Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering Technology

The Department of Mechanical Engineering Technology started in 1979 with thirteen (13) students registered for the Nigerian National Diploma (NND) programme.

The academic activities began in a rented building located opposite the present Bauchi State Polytechnic School of Basic Sciences. In 1982, the department moved to the permanent campus in Gwallameji.

In 1993, the department moved to its modern building within the permanent site with laboratory/workshop complex consisting of the following:  Applied Mechanical Laboratory, Fluid Mechanics Laboratory, Thermodynamics Laboratory, Numeral Control Laboratory, and a large design/drawing studio. Other facilities include an Automobile and Heavy Machinery Technology/Workshop, a welding/Fabrication workshop with a modern machine tools workshop.

The department has been headed by the following members of staff.

  1. Mr. M.E. Nwaekpe 1979 – 1982
  2. Mr. P.T. Perrado 1982-1983
