Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University evaluation team visit
The Management of the institution received an evaluation team on from the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi pursuant to a letter of request for affiliation to run degree programmes by the Polytechnic.
Briefing the management of the institution on their mission to the Polytechnic, leader of the evaluation team Prof. O. K Likason said they were in the institution as a prelude to approval or otherwise of the ATBU to partner the Polytechnic to run various degree programmes.
The team’s leader who said their work would harp on assessing manpower and equipment, also said that as a close neighbour, they were confident the polytechnic may not be from their expectations.
Responding, Rector of the Polytechnic Arc. Sanusi Waziri Gumau expressed appreciation to the management of ATBU Bauchi for accepting to come over to the institution for assessment and and possible approval for affiliation to run various degree programmes in the polytechnic, describing the relationship between the two institutions as historically cordial.
The Rector urged the team to never hesitate to ask questions on anything they were not clear about and charged affected Heads of Departments to cooperate with them with a view to ensuring a hitchfree exercise.
The various programmes being assessed for possible mounting of the degree programmes in affiliation with ATBU are Agric and Bio-resource Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.
Others are Architectural Technology, Building Technology, Estate Management and Evaluation, Surveying and Geo-informatics, Quantity Surveying and Computer Science.
