Nigeria is becoming an industrialized nation. Many industries are either oil-based or gas-based. Though the chemical and food industry is still in its infancy in Nigeria, especially in the area of local content, a number of industries are springing up utilizing the various agro and mineral raw materials available in the country. Internationally, there is a projection of a dearth of qualified chemical engineers in the next decade. The Chemical Engineering Programme in Covenant University aims at training qualified engineers that can operate and manage industries in Nigeria and fill the international vacuum in the very near future. The training is to produce graduates, who will be producers of goods and services, and who, upon graduation, will be functional engineers in industries, researchers, scholars in the academia, or successful entrepreneurs in Chemical Engineering-propelled ventures. The training is designed to place the graduates on the leading edge of technology.
