The Department gives support to the various Departments and the Central Administration on Welding, fabrication and servicing of equipment and tools.

We also undertake repairs and servicing of vehicles of the institution and members of staff.

The Department also plans to set up a production unit in Mechanical Engineering and Automobile Engineering for the production of simple agricultural and industrial tools and machinery as well as rehabilitation of broken-down equipment and maintenance of vehicles.

The Department is about to start a Driving School to train potential drivers professionally.
