SOFTWARE ENGINEERING LABORATORY
The goal of the Software Development Laboratory is to provide tools and resources to the software engineer that enable rapid development of software applications. While Java is ideally suited for use in Web browsers running on a networked desktop computer, its potential is far greater and will continue to revolutionize the Internet. To expand and enhance software development, this laboratory seeks to apply and enhance the Java platform for a number of areas, including enterprise software, electronic commerce, embedded network-aware sensors and actuators, mobile information appliances, and set-top multimedia computers.
This state-of-the-art laboratory was funded by the Education Trust Fund (ETF) as a Special Intervention in 2006 and is used to support the teaching and research program in computer, electrical, and mechanical engineering. Specifically, the laboratory combines a lecture facility together with a combination of high-performance Windows and Unix workstations. This facility is used by the students and faculty in the courses on Software Engineering, VLSI design, and System on a Chip Design, Digital System Verification, and Hardware Design Methodologies. In addition, this laboratory contains the hardware and software necessary to provide for the analysis and simulation of new computer designs. Examples will include new proposed Internet security solutions, experimental wireless ad hoc networks and configurations, and schemes for the management of networked systems. The laboratory provides for the development of CAD design tools and the integration of these tools to support industrial strength design flows. Finally, this facility supports the many System-on-a-Chip and Mixed Technology Microsystems research projects currently in process in the school by providing the platform for the higher-performance CAD software tools.
This classroom contains a combination of 40 Windows workstations that accommodate 40 students in a classroom environment. It is networked to provide distributed learning together with students from other campuses of ESUT as well as other schools. In addition, this facility can be made available to students and faculty on a 24/7 basis through the use of a key card access system.
Information for the Engineering labs
The basic roles of undergraduate engineering laboratories are usually stated in terms of how the laboratory experience serves the student. To these roles another is added: the continuing professional development of the faculty members. This added role gives great emphasis to laboratories concerned with new and developing topics in the discipline and moving the laboratory towards the 'hands-on' type of curriculum. This eventually will lead to more practice-oriented graduates.
In the quest for excellence, the Enugu State University of Science and Technology has laboratories for all departments in the Engineering faculty. These laboratories are located in the departments and cover for the following:
Agricultural engineering laboratory;
Chemical engineering laboratory;
Civil engineering laboratory;
Computer engineering laboratory;
Electrical/Electronics engineering laboratory;
Mechanical and production engineering laboratory; and
Materials and metallurgical engineering laboratory.
ACADEMIA™ VIRTUAL LEARNING SYSTEM
Academia™ Higher Institution Management System (Academia™) is the very first and only end-to-end information management system for tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
The system manages all processes from admissions through registration and learning and to graduation. All information relating to staff and students is stored on the system and allows for a single report generation interface with all information on the University.
Designed and developed as a radical ICT project between introIT Consulting and the Enugu State University of Science and Technology, the Academia™ project will significantly enhance administration of learning and by extension improve the standard of education within the University and in other institutions who adopt the system.
The system automatically collates and computes results at the end of every semester while ensuring that only registered students receive results. Transcripts and other academic related information is available to all students at the end of every session.
Reports on students performance, staff performance, student – staff ratio and other information enable management take informed decisions on running the University.
The Academia™ system covers all processes including:
Polls and online voting
To have an active progressive, formidable virile, democratic union that will ensure justice domestic peace, provide common defense on rights of the students and stimulate growth geared towards progressive citizenship.
Aware of the role our students must play in the growth of Nigeria and sustenance of the institution philosophy, we become determined to engage our members in the national scheme of things to progress through knowledge skills in science and technology.
Obliged to speak without doubts against any breach of fundamental human rights of speech association, movement and religion and to champion the course of the oppressed people in the world as enshrined in Nigeria constitution.
