The Faculty of Engineering (FE) is the third academic faculty to be established by the ZNDU after the Centre for Defence and Security Studies (CDSS) and the Faculty of Social Sciences (FSS). The FE was officially launched on 16 November 2018, with a view to making it a centre of excellence for Engineering and Aviation Sciences. The Faculty’s mandate is the provision of top-notch engineering training, research, innovation and industrialisation. Its programmes are designed to be in sync with the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development’s policy-Education 5.0, whose thrust is on teaching, research, community service, innovation and industrialisation as the basic tenets to national development. The Faculty’s deliberate emphasis on Software Engineering is predicated on the recognition of the emergence of the fourth industrial revolution. This is where Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and Software Engineering are recognised as current and future drivers of industrialisation.
The FE has a ten-year strategic plan starting from 2019 to 2029. This plan aims to position the Faculty as an international research-focused institution, contributing to national, regional as well as global solutions on challenges facing mankind. Currently, the Faculty has five operational Departments namely the Aerospace Engineering (AE), Aviation Sciences (AS), Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSSE), Mechanical Engineering (ME) and Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE).
