Every programme of study have specific requirements which students must meet to ensure they graduate from such programme. One of such requirements is MPC law in the Faculty of Engineering. MPC is an acronym for Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. These are three basic/core courses in the Faculty of Engineering. These courses are found in both first and second semesters. The list of these courses are as follows:

First Semester

Course Code Course Titles Credit Units
MTH 105 ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS I 4
PHY 105 PHYSICS I 4
CHM 101 GENERAL CHEMISTRY I 4

Second Semester

Course Code Course Titles Credit Units
MTH 106 ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS II 4
PHY 106 PHYSICS II 4
CHM 102 GENERAL CHEMISTRY II 4

Major Tenet of MPC Law

The MPC law held that if any 100 level students fail any of the three courses (Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry), either in first or second semesters, such student is deemed to repeat his 100 level. In the university, if a student fails a course, such student can still pass to the next level but have to register the failed course in the next upper level. But with MPC, such student has to remain in the same level to re-write the failed course(s) – even if it is one course that is failed.

However, in this second year in 100 level, such student is expected to register such failed course(s) again and borrow other related courses to make up the minimum credit units for a semester – 9 units. Students who failed the same course for a second time can also register the course again but where their CGPA is less than 1.00, such student is deemed to be WAFfed. Nevertheless, where any Engineering student passed 100 level without any MPC problems, such student is not expected to repeat any level again where he/she failed any MPC courses in upper levels. This means that MPC law only holds in 100 level. Any student who fails MPC courses in 200 level and above have no business repeating levels.

Problems Surrounding MPC Courses

Teaching quality and teaching facilities:

Some students interviewed lamented that some of the problems they face is the quality of the lecturers teaching them. They lamented that most of the teachers lack the skills and mastery to communicate the course content to them. Students also decried the level of facilities available to them. Too many students in a classroom that most of them at the back of the classes can hardly hear what some lecturers are saying.

Late release of results:

Some students in upper levels interviewed also complained that the time at which results are released also affect them a lot. In their view, they don’t see their result until late into the next session after they must have spent much time in the new session.

Late payment of school fees:

A 300 level student whom had not paid school fees for any session managed to pay 100 level fees after three sessions before he could registered his 100 level courses and checked results. Then, he realized he was having MPC complications. This led to a waste of two sessions. Imagine the level of depression this can cause to a student. Pay your school fees early.

Examination time:

Students also complained that the amount of time given in most of these examinations is not enough. Students cited examples where examinations of 2 hours goes for just 1 hour, whereas, the initial 2 hours was not even enough.

Missing practical manual scores:

It was also implicated that missing practical manual scores also cause the problem of PMC law for most students. A student referred to a situation where he found that his practical manual score was not added to his total score. Some held that practical manual is very important as failing it may mean such student have failed the course for that semester.
