Dean's Welcome Message

             Professor E. Ekwue

As a new academic year begins, on behalf of all staff of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of the West Indies, I welcome all our new and returning students to this 2019/2020 Academic Year. You are valued members of our University’s community as students. Your success – whether in the laboratory, the classroom or the community – is also our success, and we are committed to providing the training and support you need to achieve it. As a vibrant and growing research-intensive institution, the University of the West Indies is committed to training the next generation of scholars, practitioners and professionals. The Faculty has a high reputation built around its academic excellence and research scholarship developed over its 57 years of existence. We offer mostly internationally accredited programmes that attract students and staff from across the Caribbean region and beyond.

Many resources are available to you during the course of your education. The undergraduate and postgraduate booklets provide you with very important information that will guide you on the rules and regulations that will be important in your studies and other activities, to ensure that you excel while here at the St. Augustine Campus. Please read it carefully and completely so as to familiarize yourself with your selected course of study and the associated rules and regulations. It is your responsibility to know and comply with the relevant regulations. Being familiar with the material contained in these booklets will assist you in setting a timetable for moving successfully through your programme.
