Re: The Quality Of Nigeria's University Education (Let's Rank Them) by nenonos(m): 5:44pm On Jun 02, 2006
i read someone's mail saying "i think UI is best in med but lauteck is best in all"
I think that student/person should revisit the school or at least the web for more info.even your VC said it that you can not compare lauteck to greatest UI.whre was lauteck in the resent 2005 world ranking.although it was not as I expected but UI stood tall amongst others in nigeria. grin

UI is the best school in Nigeria.This is an obvious fact, and I would beg of non-uite to take it as it is.for God's sake it is the oldest school in the country and it has acquired alot of long lasting potentials over the years.I am not just saying this because i am a uite,the school has proofs to back it.I THINK ALL WE NEED TO DO IS SEEK FOR MORE INFO B4 CONCLUDING.I WOULD ALSO LOVE TO STATE THAT THERE ARE OTHER GOOD SCHOOLS AS WELL LIKE GREAT IFE, UNN AND OTHERS LIKE UNIBEN.ALL OF WHICH ALMOST SHOWED UP IN THE RECENT 2005 WORLD RANKING.ALTHOUGH THE RESULTS WERE POOR BUT THEY SHOWED UP EXEPT FOR UNN.
PLEASE STOP MENTIONING LAUTECK, IT JUST STARTED GROWING,YOU MIGHT WANA MENTION UNIPORT INSTEAD WHICH IS REALLY GROWING FAST THE LAST TIME I CHECKED

here are my facts.
The Nigerian University Commission recently announced the result of the ranking of Nigerian University. In his weekly memo, the Executive Secretary of the commission – Prof Peter Okebukola said that for Administrative/Management Sciences, Pan-African University is ranked first. Likewise, the university came tops in both the ‘Student/Personal Computers ration’ and ‘percentage of foreign staff’.
On the overall basis for Private Universities, Pan-African University can first with 7.63 points followed by Babcock University, Illisan Remo with a distant 20.81 points (lower points stands for higher ranking). Benson Idahosa University, Benin came third with 22.10 points.
On the assessments for all the universities in Nigeria, PAU came second with 7.63 points after University of Ibadan with 5.53 points. University of Lagos came third with 7.80 points while Obafemi Awolowo Univerity,Ile-Ife came forth with 7.95 points.
Prof. Okebukola listed the criteria for ranking the universities as percentages of academic programmes with full accreditation status, compliance with carrying capacity, proportion of academic staff at professional level, foreign content (staff), proportion of students who are non Nigerian, and foreign content (students). Others include proportion of staff with outstanding academic achievement, research output, students completion rate, PhD graduate output, stability of university calendar and student to computer ratio.(http://www.lbs.edu.ng/fmba_news.php#2)

Nigeria's university educatiion is RUBBISH

Its Totally Rubbish

What we learn in university is history.

imagine when you had to use ms dos, and imagine the improvement in using Microsoft office 2007.

In Nigerian universties , they teach us history, we solve mathematically formulas that take 6 pages to solve and at the end we still do not know what the calculation was fro, we just crammed it to get a good mark.

Its crazy, even the lectures are nothing but History Teachers, they make you cram definitions, formulas as if by cramming these, you are going to change the world.

Total Crap

In another thread in this forum, I maintained that there was nothing to rank in Nigeria. The academic systems are faulty and are not working. Please try education outside the shore and you will understand. This is not meant to spite our graduates  but to say the fact and also encourage them not to make the mistake, for those who are ready for MS degrees, in doing it in any Nigerian University.

I was in a forum arguing with one Nigerian graduate with BSc in Engineering as he claimed. He was so serious in saying that as an engineer, that he is not meant to go to site. He's is design according to him, maybe solve the equations. But ours' is done from: classroom-laboratory-workshops-office-field/site. To do well in design, you are expected to have enough of interplay from physical results and feedbacks.

Their main interest here is simply how to discriminate against poly graduates whereas, their Uni graduates know almost nothing. Check out their final year Project work: Plagiarism!

We can improve on this. Nigeria is only a country where a local government councilor earns more than a PhD holder. It's that serious. How can the University work.

In Nigeria, you must be a graduate to belong, maybe do NYSC , whether you can spell your name or not.

You do not need to be a graduate in life to do well. You must have a minimum of one other talent. I think.

Sometimes i wonder how Nigeria would progress with this present generation which is our only hope of survival.I get worried the more when i see youths calling themselves all sort of foul names just because the fellow youth try to say his mind.Freedom of Speech no longer have its way.Hatred have its way amidst nigerian youth
instead of love.NA WAO!!!

There is very good university in Africa. In my opinion if you can go study abroad and came back after graduating is better. But if you cant , try to acheive your bachelor in Africa and apply for Ms and PhD all arround the world. And please come back and work four your country. Africa is ours , Africa is the future .here are the world best enginering schools http://www.sciengitech.com/2011/08/world-top-engineering-schools.html .
