The complexity and the scope of engineering profession run parallel to those of various processes in the production of goods and services for human wants. Therefore the quality of engineering graduates from Nigerian Universities and polytechnics has been major subject of concern from most industries in Nigeria. Lack of appropriate practical skill acquisition in engineering training has been a subject of concern in developing countries. Thus, the paper examines the impact of teaching methods of the quality of graduates engineers produced for the industrial utilization and x-rays the relevance of the present engineering structure and curricula in some core engineering fields by carrying out a survey of some engineering faculties in some of the universities and polytechnics in south west Nigeria. The study shows lack of coordination in curricula development and dissemination between the institutions, industries and students. The study posited that in reforming education to benefit the industries (local and international) teaching method should connect both resource manpower and facilities from both the industries and institutions
