The Mineral Resources Engineering Programme is designed to reflect a FUNCTIONAL philosophy of education. While seeking to achieve academic excellence and promote the furtherance of knowledge, the Mineral Resources engineering programme also seeks to aid “the acquisition of appropriate skills, abilities and competence, both mental and physical as equipment for the individual to live in and contribute to the development of his/her society”

The programme is therefore committed to the production of qualified and competent technologist/instructors who will be able to face the challenges concomitant with the aspiration of the country to be technologically developed.

HND in Geological Engineering Technology Programme: The programme is designed to produce Technologists who will be able to apply geological and related engineering principles to the analysis and design for earth resources.

On completion of the programme, the Diplomats should be able to:

  •  collate, interpret and report geo-engineering data in a meaningful way. 
  • perform geo-engineering analysis and design involving problems in mineral exploration, groundwater prospecting, soil and foundations investigations etc.
  • supervise laboratory and field work related geological investigations and analysis.
  •  undertake direct or supportive role in Academic Research and Teaching.


The general entry requirements for the HND programme include:

a. all the requirements for admission into the ND programme in Mineral and Petroleum Engineering Technology.

b. minimum of lower credit pass (CGPA) of 2.50 and above in the ND examination in Mineral and Petroleum Engineering Technology; and

c. a minimum of one year cognate work experience.

In exceptional cases, the ND diplomats with a pass grade (CGPA) 2.0 – 2.49) in the ND examination that had two or more years of cognate work experience may be considered for admission into the HND programme.

Where do Geological Engineering work?

Mining and geological engineers design mines to safely and efficiently remove minerals for use in manufacturing and utilities. Many mining and geological engineers work where mining operations are located, such as mineral mines or sand-and-gravel quarries, in remote areas or near cities and towns. Others work in offices or onsite for oil and gas extraction firms or engineering services firms.
