All Nations University College School Of Engineering
The School of Engineering runs five Departments. Biomedical Engineering,Computer Engineering, Computer Science (BSc. Hons.),Electronics and Communications Engineering,Oil and Gas Engineering.
Biomedical Engineering Department
Biomedical Engineering uses engineering principles in physical sciences, biological and medical sciences to improve diagnoses, and treatment in healthcare delivery. It combines the design and problem solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences to improve healthcare diagnosis and treatment. The Department of Biomedical Engineering was established in 2006 (the first in West Africa) for the purpose of con-tributing to the growing healthcare needs of Ghana in the area of hospital equipment and technical expertise.
About 490 students are in the Biomedical Engineering Department.Our teaching and research focus is to equip students with the knowledge re-quired to effectively contribute to national development in the areas of design of medical instruments, devices and software, and to conduct re-search to solve clinical problems.
The Department has the following well-equipped laboratories:
- Bio-transducers and Electrodes Laboratory
- Biomedical Instrumentation Laboratory
- Biomedical Instrumentation Laboratory
- Bio-sensors and Simulation Laboratory
- Bio-sensors and Simulation Laboratory
Department of Computer Engineering
Bachelor of Computer Engineering degree is an in-depth study of Engi-neering software and hardware concepts of Computer Education. This Department was set up to train highly skilled Computer Engineers and professionals to meet the ever increasing demands of hi-tech in a vibrant modern technological age. The academic programme began in September 2006 with 12 students.
Department of Computer Science (BSc. Hons.)
The Computer Science department was established to train highly skilled Computer Scientists and professionals to meet the ever increasing tech-nological demands of modern society. The academic programme began in November 2002, with only 8 students; today there are 200. During the re-accreditation process in 2005, an international team of experts ad-judged the programme to be the strongest in Africa,therefore recom-mended for the programme to be upgraded from B.Sc. Computer Science to B.Sc. (Hons) Computer Science.
All Nations University College is one of the few Universities in the coun-try with, qualified full time faculty in Computer Science. The University has invested in sophisticated modern computer laboratories for practical training. Our graduates are in high demand due to the quality of our pro-gramme.
Department of Electronics and Communications Engineering
The department of Electronics and Communications Engineering was established in 2005 with an initial intake of 25 regular students and 71 weekend students. To date the department has 400 students. The depart-ment was established with the vision to produce professional Engineers to serve not only Ghana or Africa but the world at large. The Department has dedicated faculty members who teach and support students at all times. All faculty members are currently carrying out research on ad-vanced technologies in the following areas: Wireless Sensor Networks, VLSI Design, Embedded Systems, Networking, Digital Signal Process-ing, Programmable Logic Controller and Digital Image Processing. The Department has the most advanced state of art laboratories: The Elec-tronic work bench Lab, Electronics Circuits Design Lab, Digital Signal Processing Lab, VLSI Design Lab, Embedded Systems Design Lab, Mi-crowave Lab, and an Optical Communication Lab.
Department of Oil and Gas Engineering
Oil and Gas involves the production of crude oil and natural gas eco-nomically and in environmentally safe manner. The Oil and Gas engineer works cooperatively with geologists and geophysicists to locate, describe and evaluate reservoirs through a variety of exploratory and modeling techniques. The Oil and Gas engineer in collaboration with mechanical engineers further oversees the planning of recovery methods and drilling operations. The O&G engineer designs integrated strategies for primary and improved recovery schemes, and designs hydrocarbon production and treating facilities.
The proposed Oil and Gas program is designed for the student to acquire a strong understanding of basic sciences, engineering sciences and technology. The primary concern is with the movement of oil, gas and water, in various combinations as pertains to a particular formation, through porous media. Once these fluids and soil particles (which are invariably present) are brought to the surface. The Oil and Gas engineer is involved with separation and processing to achieve qualities suitable for further operations such as refining. Purification and other separation processes are common between Chemical engineers and Oil & Gas engineers and are called Unit Operations. Other processes such as fluid flow in pipes and transfer of heat are also common between the two disciplines. The Oil and Gas engineer is directed towards activities such as characterizing reservoirs, drilling, logging of wells and evaluating formations, testing the wells, production and analyzing efficiencies of the operation, safety and environmental issues. After primary production of light crude, driven by gas pressures, most of the oil is still underground. The oil and Gas engineer designs schemes to improve recovery from such systems, and also to treat and/or upgrade the oil and the gas brought to the surface.
The admission requirements described in this section are minimal for consideration for admission and should be viewed as guidelines only. All Nations University College reserves the right to accept or deny admission of applicants without explanation. A review of an admission decision may be requested provided that substantially new and significant information is supplied to the Admissions Board. To meet the needs of applicants with diverse backgrounds, ANUC has developed a number of admission categories.
Where general requirements do not cover, the interview process that each applicant will undertake, will determine his/her qualifications. Such interviews will be conducted by the Registrar’s Office or those assigned by that office.
General Admission Requirements
The National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE) Ghana directives guide the Admissions Policy for school candidates. All applications to the University College must be accompanied by Original Transcripts from previous institutions or examination bodies. Awarding institutions must be accredited and recognized by the National Accreditation Board.
