About the department of Transport Management

The Department of Transport Management Technology forms the appropriate ground for breeding technocrat-managers for the transport industry.

Our department has a mandate to produce graduates of proven ability who would be capable of making effective contributions at the middle/upper management cadre of planning, policy formulation and implementation and management of transport organizations.

Any nation can establish, with relative ease, a bureaucratic system and science/technology as separate entities. It is however, difficult to equip the nation with personnel who can handle both management and technocrats that can give sound advice on management and technological know how, but have little knowledge of management/coordination aspects of the system. We, hence, contribute to the development of transport industry, especially in Nigeria, through joint research, seminar and workshop activities with national and international organizations.

Profile

As a result of limitation arising from the expensive nature of the physical and chemical processes in liberating the environment from the danger posed by contaminants to humans through an increase biochemical oxygen demand (BOD). Engr. Azeez’s research concerned with the statistical and quantification of biodegradation as a bioremediation technique and the development of the transport model during biodegradation and treatment of the contaminants in which many factors such as effect of aerated condition, pH, initial concentration of the contaminants, accessibility and availability of the microbes were to be considered for safety of environments from threat that might be posed by contaminants to humans. Due to rate of consumption of oxygen and gait of individual influenced the cardiorespiratory fitness of individual, walking and exercise of the people irrespective of their state of health. Engr. Azeez concerned with quantification of rate of the oxygen consumption (VO2 max) and gait parameters such as stride length, step length, step time, cadence and gait speed in correlation with level of cardiorespiratory fitness and the effects on the pattern of walking, exercise and healthy condition of individual subjects. World today has become polymeric in nature because of high demand of polymer products and applications due to its availability and cost of production but service life of polymer composites and products cannot be compared with many materials such as ceramics, metals etc. Therefore, there is need to improve the service life and quality of the polymer composites and products. The current research of Engr. Azeez’s based on reinforcement of polymers with natural fibers due to its promising nature and available in the environment so as to develop a model to improve the quality of the fibers reinforced polymers composites and products by the chemical, physical and mechanical analysis of the effects of both treated and untreated natural fibers for the purpose of improve health care delivery.

Profile

In a society where mobility occupies a centre stage, and most vehicles in use are mainly imported second-hand vehicles coupled with poor maintenance culture, the rate of breakdown on the roads becomes so alarming that people hardly complete their journeys without hitches. Dr. D. N. Dike is involved in a research aimed at ameliorating the breakdown and attendant accidents.

With the present landscape in Nigeria cities, urban mobility suffers some deprivations due to high level of cognition. To cope with this unpleasant scenario, research is ongoing to determine the relationship between the population of passengers on the road daily, the modes of transport they use, the population served by each mode and the adequacy and convenience enjoyed from each mode - giving consideration to the Nigerian milieu.

Profile

Transport is seen globally as the live wire of any nation. Experts with good knowledge of engineering and management aspects of transport are needed to nipped flaws of traditional approach to transport management in the bud. As a result, interest in engineering management of transport systems has grown. E. A. Ejem is poised to contribute to the development of transport in Nigeria in particular and the world in general through intellectual doggedness and grace.

More so, the behavior of transport systems across the world seems to vary. Hence a transport solution in one part of the world might not solve effectively the transport problems of another due to these varied behaviors occasioned by uniqueness of travel pattern, nature of economic activities and above all spate of development of transport infrastructure. To this end, E. A. Ejem is unrelenting in his focus in studying pragmatically various transport operations with a view to delivering research-based and intuitive solutions to transport problems.

Profile

I educate, motivate and enable myself and all those who know me to achieve self actualization and become everything that God destined us to be."

As an educator of diverse young children, it is my responsibility to create an effective and safe learning environment where students can learn without fear of failure. It is my mission to introduce a basic understanding of technology as a tool of knowledge. Each student will be encouraged to develop the skills necessary to become respected citizens and acquire a passion for lifelong learning

My professional activities are guided by a deep personal sense of mission, driven by my belief that our civilization is at a critical juncture in history. The crisis is manifested by symptoms like environmental degradation, explosive population growth, and decay of infrastructure. I maintain that the cause of these symptoms, however, can be traced to the fact that human understanding - and therefore human behavior - has not advanced in step with human knowledge. This discordance between knowledge and understanding is particularly acute in science and technology, and it has grown rapidly over the past century.

My personal mission is to contribute toward the goal of global education with emphasis on promoting understanding of the relationship between humanity and the natural world. The challenge of educating the masses of humanity is daunting, but I have great faith in the human spirit. I imagine the process of education becoming one of a chain reaction, with each small effort multiplied as individuals share their newly gained understanding with others. As we learn to understand our world, I believe that we also will develop the tools that can enable us to secure a peaceful, stable, and prosperous future for centuries to come.

    Profile

    Development of transport is vital to economic development and growth of any nation. To this end I have been concentrating efforts at studies that will help improve and develop transport infrastructures and super-structures whether on the land, sea and seaports and air transport. Critical to development and growth is capacity utilization. Capacities should not be built without adequate utilization as so doing will not justify the huge cost of putting in place these infrastructures (capacities) because with limited resources, such funds could have been used for other vital sectors of the economy. This has made me to continually appraise capacity utilization in the Nigerian Transport Industry and where necessary argue for improvement.

    With adequate infrastructures in place different carriers – land (road and rail), air and water, will be able to offer market driven products and services at market dictated prices. This is expected in the ideal market environment but the real life situations does not depicts this hence I and some of my colleagues have studied demand and supply estimations, behaviors of producers and consumers as well as competitions and market shares in the Nigerian Transport Industry.

    Transport services is essentially “safe arrivals” and to this end studies have been carried out by me and some colleagues in driver behavior, training and education so that we can have good understandings of users (of) and causes of accidents on Nigerian roads.

    Intelligent Transport Systems is an area we will be focusing our attention on so that we can develop our local technologies to meet our transport needs.

    I spend my free time relating with Jehovah my creator, playing video games with my family and games of golf with my golfing friends.

Profile

With a background based on training in the related fields of human geography and transport planning and management, my teaching interest has covered a wide area involving both transport planning and transport management. The varied interest was reinforced partly by my initial teaching experience in all the transport planning courses contained in the urban and regional planning program of the university where I formerly taught.

Another source of support for the diverse interest was the need to assist with the teaching of certain courses for which there were no better hands at the time of my appointment. This sustained interest has been reflected in my writings too. However, my proximate area of interest for research purposes is transport planning, especially urban transport planning.
