Best Nigerian Universities Offering Aeronautics And Astronautics Engineering

This assessment by PositiveNaija aims to provide a reliable guide on the overall standard of Nigerian universities offering aeronautics and astronautics engineering as an academic course and degree.

Aerospace engineering is the primary field of engineering concerned with the development of aircraft and spacecraft. It has two major and overlapping branches: aeronautical engineering and astronautical engineering. Avionics engineering is similar, but deals with the electronics side of aerospace engineering.

“Aeronautical engineering” was the original term for the field. As flight technology advanced to include vehicles operating in outer space, the broader term “aerospace engineering” has come into use. Aerospace engineering, particularly the astronautics branch, is often colloquially referred to as “rocket science”.

BEST NIGERIAN UNIVERSITIES OFFERING Aeronautics And Astronautics Engineering

This assessment on the quality of Nigerian universities offering aeronautics and astronautics engineering as an academic course and degree is hinged on certain parameters or factors.

  • Factor 1: Accreditation

Indicator: Accreditation report by the National Universities Commission of Nigeria (NUC).

Source: Latest NUC Undergraduate Accreditation Result

This factor takes into consideration the qualifying elements for the course of aeronautics and astronautics engineering: library strength; physical and technological infrastructure; number and quality of relevant staff; etc.

Thus, in this assessment of recommended universities (undergraduate), only universities with full accreditation have been provided.

  • Factor 2: Quality of Education

Indicator/Source:

a) The Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

b) NUC Ranking Of Universities In Nigeria

This factor takes into consideration: Teaching (the learning environment); Research (volume, income and reputation); Citations (research influence); International outlook (staff, students and research); and Industry income (knowledge transfer), etc.

Thus, in this assessment of recommended universities, only the best universities in Nigeria according to the latest indicator/source rankings are featured (note: for NUC, universities with a total of 300 points and above).

The recommended Nigerian universities have also been listed in the order of their performance in the rankings.

  • Factor 3: Job employability

Indicator: Most employable Nigerian universities

Source: The Nigerian Graduate Report 2018 by Stutern.

This factor will be recorded in percent as stated in the report of the source relied on.

  • Factor 4Accessible information relevant about the Faculty.

Indicator and source: Online – website of the respective university/faculty

This factor takes into consideration course information available on the following: curriculum; names and contact of the faculty (email and/or phone number); profile/CV and contact of staff and management; number of total students; seminars, conferences, research; tuition and other relevant fees; internet safety of the website; etc.

This factor will be recorded as “Available”, “Good” and “Excellent” accordingly.
