As part of efforts geared towards combating the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Mechatronics Engineering of The Ibadan Polytechnic has manufactured a ventilator and smart hand-washer
The Rector of the institution, Prof. Kazeem Adebiyi showcased the machines to newsmen in Ibadan on Thursday.
According to him, the feat was possible with the support of the government of Oyo State that released an accreditation grant for the Polytechnic.
“When we received the letter of accreditation that we passed all our programmes for accreditation. It was a joyful thing. It was an accreditation for 13 programmes and we passed all.
Also, we did three professional accreditations which we passed and that looked like magic to anybody. How are we able to achieve that? they wondered."
