Lab Equipment Fund Raising for EEE Dept Obafemi Awolowo University

The Electronic and Electrical Engineering Department at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife is a foremost engineering department in Nigeria. The department has been producing quality manpower since its inception in the 1960s. To continue its mission of contributing to nation building, the department is now in dire need of upgrading its teaching laboratory equipment. This fund-raising campaign is set up specifically for this purpose. The need for this fund-raising campaign is made more imperative in view of the abject resourcing of public Universities in Nigeria.

It should be emphasised that a well-equipped laboratory is vitally important to train learners in Electronic and Electrical Engineering. Practical hands-on laboratory activities are vital to reinforce concepts learned in the classroom and spur innovation in learners.

The lab upgrade will enhance the learning of an average of 1200 (One thousand two hundred) Electronic and Electrical Engineering students per year and several more in Computer Science/Engineering, Physics, Engineering Physics, Material Sciences and Engineering, Chemical engineering, Mechanical Engineering and other related Engineering subjects.

The ambition of this fund-raising campaign is to equip 20 lab bench spaces with the following state-of-the-art ‘Smart Bench Essentials Test Instruments’.

1. Oscilloscope
2. Waveform/signal generator
3. Bench top power supply
4. Bench top digital multi-meter.

Further details and specifications of these items are available here. The guide price to equip one lab bench space with the above bundle of four lab instruments is about £3000 app $3821. Our target is 20 bench spaces (estimated at $76,420). The target project amount is about N100,000,000(based on NGN to USD conversion and additional cost for desks and facilities)

We kindly solicit your support in this quest.
