Vision

Engineers are persons who specialize in the design of safe efficient systems, plants and processes that are of practical and economic value. This curriculum provides a foundation to address the engineering problems of human systems with the Cameroon situation in mind. These problems will be of even greater concern in the future. The courses unify learned concepts with a practical ability to solve a broad range of engineering problems encountered in daily life. Students must meet the requirements of both the university and the school of Engineering in order to gain admission.


Mission

The mission of the School of Engineering is to train a new breed of professionals capable of valorizing the engineering opportunities and potentials of their environment in the civil, electrical, mechanical, chemical, petrochemical, and agricultural domains. The school offers students a large spectrum of scientific and technical skills associated with a profound understanding of his or her environment, the taste and aptitude for action in association with a solid Christian professional ethics.


Objectives of SENG

The School of Engineering offers a four year course programme. The courses are conceived to train professionals in Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Petroleum and Gas, Chemical and Engineering and in an African context in order to increase civil, electrical, mechanical and agricultural production, develop industries and improve the standard of living of our population. At the same time, the School trains its students to be convinced, committed and competent intellectuals, capable to work and develop their country in a Christian perspective. The Engineering Professional trained at the School should be able to:


  • Understand and apply modern and traditional techniques

  • Analyze human problems in his environment and propose appropriate solutions.

  • Adapt different methods to various problems especially in a rural context (Spirit of initiative and creativity)

  • Popularize engineering techniques.

  • Create and manage profitable enterprises. Engage in development according to the social teachings of the Catholic Church.


Our Unique Approach To Studies and Training

In order to produce a new breed of Engineers for our society we lay emphasis on hands-on practical training and professionalism in the programme. Our approach to this end is providing well qualified staff, industrial internship, and partnership as explained below.


Staff

The School has a team of Qualified and Experienced Engineers who are devoted to pass on the gift through practical projects. Visiting lecturers from our partners abroad visit regularly to share their experiences both with the students and the staff. Our state-of–arts facilities leaves the students with nothing to desire.

Internship/Industrial Experience

Students of Engineering at SENG are placed on a one month internship in an industry during the long holidays of the first two years of their studies , to gain basic industrial skills and experience. However, the second semester of the third year is dedicated to a supervised industrial experience in a recognized institution. In this way graduates from SENG are full professionals ready to start their own enterprises on gain employment both at the National and International levels.

Partnership
We have strong partnerships at home and abroad. For example La Sapienza di Roma, Politecnico di Milano all of Italy. These partnerships expose our students to international experience through student exchange programmes, experts lectures through visiting lecturers and e-conferences.
