This is a studio course in descriptive geometry, projections and the construction of shades and shadows including freehand drawings.
This is a study of the elementary methods of construction with analysis of the wood frame and masonry construction types. Emphasis is on understanding techniques principles and forms of building construction; functions of a building and its enclosure. Methods of building: Traditional, Post-Traditional (or conventional), Rationalised Foundations-Soils and characteristics of foundation types and choices, Lowest floor basements, Walls and Piers. Types of walls, external walls and internal partitions. Openings: door and window-types. Internal divisions and components: partitions, staircases. Suspended floors/ceilings, roof-types and basic principles.
The course is an empirical introduction to the understanding of structural action and potential of materials, with an emphasis on structure as an integral part of architectural design. It deals with basic definition of forces, stresses and strains, definition of structural elements and systems, resisting deformation, stability, historical development of structures and interdisciplinary design process. The course explores properties of materials - tensile, compressive, shear stresses and strains in simple structures. Stresses and deformations in beams, restrained and continuous beams are also considered.
This course is designed for a semester in Fortran Programming language for undergraduate Computer Science, Mathematical Science and Engineering students. The course covers general concepts and introduction to Fortran Programming with Fortran 03 (or Fortran 2003). Fortran 03 contains all of the features of the later version Fortran 77/95 needed to write complete and workable Fortran programs. Even though the course may not, in to full details, give everything the students need, it covers the basic features needed to be a good Fortran programmer and an introduction to the important new features of Fortran 03. This course has found profound and significant applications in Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science, and other related fields.
Importance and scope of agriculture. Land and its uses with particular reference to agriculture. Introductory crop production. Agricultural ecology of Nigeria. Agronomy of some arable crops. Land preparation. Harvesting, processing and reservation method. Farm tools and machinery including tractor driving and by-products. Basic farm management techniques. Fisheries and wildlife production. Forest products. General introduction to livestock production and health.
This course is the first in the understanding basic surveying and geoinformatics operations. It is designed as a core course for students in surveying and geoinformatics. However, it also meets the need of students in other fields, as a course that provides hands-on training in the understanding of the routines of basic surveying and geoinformatics operations. It is a practicaloriented course, the focus is to impart useful skills of basic principles of surveying and geoinformaticson the students. Topics to be covered include
The course is mainly an advanced continuation of ARC 203 which is basically to develop the presentation of architectural drawings; introduction to the use of graphics in architecture; graphic thinking and building representation; representation of building elements and materials; their application in plans, elevations and sections; projection techniques for shades and shadow construction; complex 3-dimensional drawings of building exteriors and interiors; oblique, isometric, axonometric and perspectives. Emphasis is on presentation and advanced rendering techniques using wet media such as water or poster colour, ink, etc.
Elements and components of construction. A study of the materials available for building with emphasis on their structure, properties, application and sustained performance over the life of a building. Introduction to the basic materials and elements of construction including their properties and performances. General characteristics and properties of materials (sand, clay and stone). Laterite and earth construction. Masonry elements: bricks-production, properties of bonding and construction. Cement manufacture, types and properties, concrete, sandcrete and concrete block-production and tests for standard practice. Timber: hardwood and soft wood. Properties and defects. Treatment, forms and uses.
The course essentially introduces the idea of architecture as a reflection of a given social order and as a generator of that order. It will cover the generative principles of design as demonstrated by the evolution of architecture seen in its cultural, environmental and technical context using historical research, sources and techniques. Lectures will draw freely from historical structures of the Western Sudan, Egypt, Greece, Rome and other Asian and South American countries.
Introduction to basic manufacturing processes, organisation of the workshop. Workshop hazard and safety practices and codes. Properties of wood materials, bench work and fitting. Introduction to turning exercises â€“ straight and step turning. Chamfering, screw cutting, milling and milling exercise. Drilling techniques and exercises. Properties of work, woodwork and joinery exercise. Workshop measurements.
This course is a build up to Theory of Structures I (ARC211). Also it is introductory course to design of structures, definitions, convections, rational analysis of structural members of system and common language for discussion. Calculation is kept to a necessary minimum instead concentrating on imbuing understanding that will allow rational decision making in architectural design process. And overlap with a studio work project to illustrate the process of basic static and the application of statics to the determination of reactions, stresses, shears and moments in trussed structures. Introduction to the analysis of statically indeterminate structures, moment area theorem, conjugate beam and moment distribution.
This course is an exploratory, general school course in economics that is designed primarily for students in different disciplines. However, it also meets the need of students in the other fields, as a course that provides student with the basic understanding of Economics as a discipline that study a society and its resources. As a theoretical course, the focus is to impart useful skills on the students in order to enhance their management of limited economic resources and application at national levels. Topics to be covered include Scope and methodology of economics, Demand and supply, theory of production, Forms of business organisations, Market structure, International trade, economic growth and development, Role of government in any economy, money and banking.
This is the second course, a build-up, in the understanding basic surveying and geoinformatics operations. Like its prerequisite, it is designed as a core course for students in surveying and geoinformatics. However, it also meets the need of students in other fields, as a course that provides hands-on training in the understanding of the routines of basic surveying and geoinformatics operations. It is a practical oriented course; the focus is to impart useful skills of basic principles of surveying and geoinformatics on the students. Topics to be covered include
