LCU Engineering Students Pay Technical Visit To Adamasingba Stadium Renovation Project.
Technical visit are life lines in sustaining practical engineering education. Consequently the Faculty of Engineering,LeadCity University, under the auspices of the Nigerian Society of Engineers, Ibadan chapter, chaired by Engr. Dr. Ajagbe paid such a visit to the Adamasingba Sports Complex on Tuesday, 15th December, 2020.
The visiting team which also comprised NSE executives and students from about six (6) tertiary institutions within Nigeria was received by the state sports council chairman, Hon. Gbenga Adewusi (aka Arole). After a brief introduction of personalities present, the team was led by the General Manager into the main-bowl to inspect the on-going renovation, which is expected to be completed by May, 2021.
An overview of the renovation done so far was facilitated by the general manager who at some point handed over to the lead Engineer on site (for Peculiar Engineering Ltd, contractors handling the project). Some of the things mentioned and/or observed included:
Upgrading seating capacity from 8000 to 10000 in line with FIFA requirement
Creation of print media section
Creation of VIP and VVIP sections cComplete roofing of the entire seating sections cCreation of first aid clinic
Creation of emergency exit
This visit truly afforded students of the faculty to physically see some of the engineering theories taught in class implemented in a practical project. It also enabled staff to explain some of the principles guiding such a project. Questions were entertained during and after the inspection and another visit is proposed for March 2021, a couple of months to completion of the project. This is especially with a view to seeing the implementation of solutions to some of the issues raised with respect to the project.
Finally the technical visit helped to raise awareness of the engineering programmes offered by Lead City University. There is high optimism that this will contribute in no small measure in producing quality engineers who will add sufficient value to developing Nigeria and the world.

Be an active, rather than passive reader (take note and read critically)
Your place of study should be free from distraction and interruptions.
Consider revision with friends; treat all your tutorial questions several times.
Ensure that you know the date and time of eachexamination in advance.
We believe you can make it, just put in your very best.
Note: A 'table' of envelopes should be prepared by invigilators to guide the students on submission of scripts at the end of each examination.
The National Association of Medical Rehabilitation Therapists of Nigeria on Tuesday 16th February 2021 visited the University on an advisory visit, to collaborate and support the University towards obtaining approval & accreditation from NUC to run the Doctor of Physiotherapy Program (DPT). DPT is a new program that is being added to the list of academic programs offered by the Institution at the Postgraduate level. The team that visited the University was delighted with the readiness of the institution as well as the community of students and the quality of the learning environment.
Task Force on Dress Code Swings to Action
As from this semester, a 5-man taskforce on the enforcement of dress code, will on regular basis monitor students’ level of compliance to the approved University dress code. The members are: Dr Ayobami Owolabi, Dr. Simeon Ola-Oni, Lt. A. K. Oluade (Rtd), Dr. Tolu Adenekan and Mrs. Ayanjompe.
Specifically, the 5-man taskforce has been mandated to pay unscheduled visit to classrooms, laboratories, studios etc. and any student found contravening the approved dress code of the University will be penalized on the spot. The penalty ranges from a minimum fine of N5,000 for first offender to suspension for a period not less than one semester or total expulsion.
Lecturers should also be vigilant and assist in enforcing this policy. A lecturer will be found culpable or must have compromised the standard if five students are found to be improperly dressed in his/her class. The name of the lecturer will be forwarded to the office of the Registrar for appropriate sanction.
Though, we provide a university environment that allows academic freedom and modernity with cutting edge facilities, we however do not equate secularity with unfettered obscenity in the name of fashion. We cannot afford to shrink from our responsibilities as “in loco parentis” (local parent) to our students.

The University Administration will consider any violation of this code as a very serious one and severe disciplinary action will be taken against the defaulters which may include a payment of #5,000 for first time offenders, suspension for period of not less than one semester for continuous violation of dress code or expulsion.
