This course provides opportunity for students of Chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, engineering, food science and technology and geology to collect the appropriate data required to define the properties of gases, liquids, solids and colloidal dispersions, to systematize them into laws, and give them a theoretical foundation. The course is also useful in establishing the energy relations obtaining in physical and chemical transformations, in ascertaining the extent and speed with which they take place, and in defining quantitatively the controlling factors. Topics to be covered include Kinetic theory of gases; behaviour of real gases; critical constants and liquefaction of gases; heat capacities of gases; principle of equipartition of energy; first and second laws of thermodynamics; enthalpy, entropy and free energy; reaction and phase equilibria; reaction rates; rate laws; zero, first and second order kinetics; experimental determination of reaction orders; mechanism and theory of elementary processes; photochemical reactions; basic electrochemistry.
This course is designed for a semester in Fortran Programming language for undergraduate Computer Science, Mathematical Science and Engineering students. The course covers general concepts and introduction to Fortran Programming with Fortran 03 (or Fortran 2003). Fortran 03 contains all of the features of the later version Fortran 77/95 needed to write complete and workable Fortran programs. Even though the course may not, in to full details, give everything the students need, it covers the basic features needed to be a good Fortran programmer and an introduction to the important new features of Fortran 03. This course has found profound and significant applications in Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science, and other related fields.

The objectives of this course are to: ï‚· Introduce students to basic engineering mechanics ï‚· Provide students with opportunities to develop their knowledge of applied Mechanics.
This course is a compulsory course designed for students in engineering disciplines to acquire quality knowledge in the area of materials science and engineering. Materials are the bedrock of Engineering. Therefore it is important that all students in the various discipline of engineering be fortified with adequate knowledge of the course. The course shall span through structure-property-application relationship of materials with respect to mechanical behaviour of materials, electrical properties of materials, optical and magnetic properties of materials, materials and there interference with the environment among others.
Require no course description and/or content. Programme is executed in collaboration with industries as it is an exposure of students to what practically take place in typical industrial settings. It is an avenue to marry the theoretical knowledge acquired in the classroom with the industrial knowhow.
