College Overview

 

The College of Engineering at the University of Liberia offers four-year undergraduate degree programs under three separate departments: Civil Engineering. Electrical Engineering, Geology and Mining Engineering. Each of these programs promotes the development of human capacity, resources, and skills required to solve Liberia’s critical technical and natural resources challenges. In addition to the four academic programs of the college, a Mechanical Engineering program is envisioned to be added by 2018/2019 academic year.

The University of Liberia in collaboration with notable national and international support partners continues to propel the College of Engineering into a higher level of excellence in engineering education in Liberia.

Today, the College of Engineering has improved its academic support laboratories and is prepared to provide fee-for-service to many clients in need of engineering related services.
