Submitted by demo-user on Mon, 05/14/2018 - 16:09

Technological advancement and modernizations of the operations in the field of jewellery and metalsmithing has made it expedient to design and improve this program in other to make graduates suitable to cope with the industry.  This programme has been designed to take care of three distinct areas in the field of metal work. This is aimed at equipping students with the requisite skills and the technical know-how to enable them function fully in these three areas being; Metal Product Design, Jewellery Design and Technology and then Metalsmithing Technology. The programme serves as the fundamental tool to make graduates eligible to pursue further studies in these three areas of specialty and other related discipline. Metalsmithing and Jewellery Technology programme has been design in two components being; the theory and practical components, all making use of research and technological advancement in the areas of Jewellery, Metal art, Metalsmithing Design and technology.
