1. Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is a branch of engineering that applies physics, material science principles as well as engineering to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems.

This course is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines. After your undergraduate study, you can decide to further your studies abroad on a scholarship. You can apply through the PTDF Overseas Scholarship in order to earn a scholarship.

 2. Computer Engineering

Computer engineering is a discipline that integrates several fields of computer science and electronics engineering required to develop computer hardware and software.

Graduates of this discipline are trained in electronic engineering (or electrical engineering), software design, and hardware-software integration instead of only software engineering or electronic engineering.

Related – List of Tertiary Schools That Offer Computer Science in Nigeria.

They are also involved in many hardware and software aspects of computing, from the design of individual microcontrollers, microprocessors, personal computers, and supercomputers, to circuit design.

Apart from the focus of computer engineering on how computer systems themselves work, but also how they integrate into the larger picture.

3. Software Engineering

Software engineering is one of the most lucrative engineering courses in Nigeria has become one of the most important courses in the tech field.

This branch of engineering is a systematic application of scientific and technological knowledge, methods, and experience to the design, implementation, testing, and documentation of software.

Simply put, Software engineering discipline that is concerned with all aspects of software production. It is the application of engineering to the development of software in a systematic method.

  4. Electrical/Electronic Engineering

Electrical engineering deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism.

This branch of Engineering has now subdivided into a wide range of subfields including electronics, digital computers, computer engineering, power engineering, telecommunications, control systems, radio-frequency engineering, signal processing, instrumentation, and microelectronics.

Many of these subdisciplines overlap with other engineering branches, spanning a huge number of specializations such as hardware engineering, power electronics, electromagnetics & waves, microwave engineering, nanotechnology, electrochemistry, renewable energies, mechatronics, electrical materials science, and much more. See glossary of electrical and electronics engineering.

Electrical engineers typically hold a degree in electrical engineering or electronic engineering. Practicing engineers may have professional certification and be members of a professional body. Such bodies include the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) (formerly the IEE).

Electrical engineers work in a very wide range of industries and the skills required are likewise variable. These range from basic circuit theory to the management skills required of a project manager. The tools and equipment that an individual engineer may need are similarly variable, ranging from a simple voltmeter to a top end analyzer to sophisticated design and manufacturing software.

5. Civil Engineering

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as residences, institutional buildings, roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines, and railways.

This discipline is traditionally broken into a number of sub-disciplines. It is considered the second-oldest engineering discipline after military engineering and it is defined to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering.

Civil engineering takes place in the public sector from municipal through to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies.

Many people regard the dentist as the doctor of the teeth but dentistry is not limited to the teeth alone. It also includes other aspects of the craniofacial complex including the temporomandibular joint and other supporting, muscular, lymphatic, nervous, vascular, and anatomical structures.

Usually, dental treatment and care are carried out by a dental team, which often consists of a dentist and dental auxiliaries (dental assistants, dental hygienists, dental technicians, as well as dental therapists).

As a dentist, you can work in private practices (primary care), dental hospitals or (secondary care) institutions (prisons, armed forces bases, etc.).

2. Pharmacy

Pharmacy is a medical course that entails the science and technique of preparing and dispensing drugs.

This course links health sciences with chemical sciences and aims to ensure the safe and effective use of pharmaceutical drugs.

The scope of pharmacy practice includes more traditional roles such as compounding and dispensing medications, and it also includes more modern services related to health care, including clinical services, reviewing medications for safety and efficacy, and providing drug information. Pharmacists, therefore, are the experts on drug therapy and are the primary health professionals who optimize the use of medication for the benefit of the patients.

3. Medical Laboratory Science

Generally, medical laboratory scientists work in clinical laboratories at hospitals, physician’s offices, reference labs, biotechnology labs, and non-clinical industrial labs.

4. Nursing

Nursing is a medical science that deals with the treatment and care of individuals, families, and communities so they may attain, maintain, or recover optimal health and quality of life.

This course is different from other health care providers by their approach to patient care, training, and scope of practice.

Generally, nurses practice in many specialties with differing levels of prescription authority. However, nurses are known to provide care within the ordering scope of physicians, and this traditional role has shaped the public image of nurses as care providers.

 5. Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is also known as physical therapy (PT). It is one of the allied health courses. It involves using mechanical force and movements (biomechanics or kinesiology), manual therapy, exercise therapy, and electrotherapy, remediates impairments and promotes mobility and function.

Veterinary doctors also help to maintain food supply through livestock health monitoring and treatment, and mental health by keeping pets healthy and long living. Veterinary scientists often collaborate with epidemiologists, and other health or natural scientists depending on the type of work. Ethically, veterinarians are usually obliged to look after animal welfare.
