Philosophy

The Philosophy of the Industrial Physics Programme was birthed in the Covenant University Philosophy, viz, “Raising a New Generation of Leaders”. Thus, the Industrial Physics Programme is fashioned towards producing graduates with an adequate/broad understanding of the basic concepts of Physics, complemented with applications-oriented courses (i.e. specializations) that will advance the productive capacity of these graduates. To that extent, the two components are further spiced with such Covenant University courses as Entrepreneurial Development Studies (EDS) and Total Man Concept (TMC) which, together, would assist any of our Industrial Physics graduates to be very relevant in the production processes in one of these sub fields: Applied Geophysics, Electronics and Information Technology Applications and Renewable Energy. In essence, we endeavour to produce job creators, not just potential employees. The students would also be simultaneously prepared for postgraduate research in these sub-fields and their allied disciplines.
