About SENG

The School of Engineering was created as one of the four Schools that took off when CUIB was created in May 2010. The School offers a four year integrated program which includes Chemical Engineering, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering.

SENG works with renowned companies with notable labs like; Cameroon Development Corporation (CDC), National Advanced School of Public Work, University of Buea, Government Technical High School Kumba and IRAD Ekona which enables students carry out laboratory practical as a follow up to theories taught in class. At SENG students (Freshmen, Sophomore) go for internship during the summer holidays while Junior students go for work experience during their second semester.

The students of the School have been making remarkable attempts of engaging in the concept of Entrepreneurship and Economy of Communion as evidenced in the several projects that have been undertaken by different student groups like the Emerald group who have come up with Moringa tea to look out for diabetic patience. The Faculty and students have also worked on an Egusi Melon processing Machine which saw one of our students selected for the Tony Elumelu award to Young Entrepreneurs

The school is headed by a Dean, A Vice Dean, Three Administrative Assistance, Faculty Members and a Priest who together help the students enjoy their stay at the SENG.


Our Undergraduate Programmes prepare professional engineers for leadership roles in industry and entrepreneurship, responding to the global, technological, economic, and societal challenges of the 21st century.


To produce graduates who will demonstrate and establish an edge in academic and technical competence amongst colleagues and achieve professional recognition in their workplace (Academia or Industry.
Train graduates who will utilize their skills and resourcefulness to invent, design and realize cost effective technology to meet local needs that is finding innovative solutions to engineering.
Train our graduates in a way so as to enable them embrace cultural societal, environmental, and ethical issues in their work through our volunteerism, catholic education, entrepreneurship and civic education programs.
Our graduates should be able to recognize the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning. Train students in a way to ensure excellence in multi-disciplinary teams and multi-cultural teams


Generally, admission into CUIB is based on Passion but a prospective candidate for admission must have a pass in at least four subjects at the GCE “O” Level including Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics and in addition, two subjects at the GCE “A” Level.


a) We offer project-oriented courses where students have possibilities of building prototypes and eventual products and for the past years, our students won international awards such as the Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship; the study of the US institutes (SUSI) program.

b) For the past years, Graduates from our four (4) year programs have been very successful in securing admissions into other local and foreign universities in order to pursue further education at the Masters Level.

c) There is a state of the art Electronics Lab that facilitates the construction of product prototypes like

  • battery charges
  • inverters for solar power homes
  • drive system for electric cars

d) We are proud to have partner universities in the USA with whom we foster research collaboration and opportunities for both students and faculty.
