Nigerian tertiary institutions face tremendous challenges in the overall conduct of engineering education programs that have failed to equip students with the requisite skills to meet the demands of the world of work and modern society.
Throughout the years, the industry has been the most concerned about the standard of engineering graduates from universities and polytechnics in Nigeria. Despite its enormous resources, the current trend in engineering education in Nigeria has created a gap between the standard of training earned by the graduates against the employers ‘ expectations in the country’s businesses and industries.
The dilapidation of laboratories and facilities at tertiary institutions in Nigeria has been a major concern for all engineering education stakeholders. Much of the tertiary schools, laboratories, and facilities, have been the old ones given since the schools started for decades and are therefore totally out of date with our graduates ‘ current training of our graduates. The quantity of the farcicalities is grossly inadequate, and for those institutions that have laboratories are facing an acute shortage of supplies of consumables and equipment (Owolabi & Rafiu, 2010).
