Welcome to the Centre for Industrial Studies

Introduction

The establishment of the University of Technology in Nigeria was a deliberate effort by the Federal Government to satisfy the widespread yearnings of Nigerians to turn out University graduates that possess in-depth practical bent necessary for self-employment on graduation.  The aim of this practice is to equip graduates of Universities of Technology with sufficient and relevant practical skills needed for self-development.  It is for the above reasons that the Centre for Industrial Studies was established in FUTO to help produce students as “finished products” having the ability to be self-reliant.

This Centre is the central hub for all students and staff for skill training which range from basic workshop practices to more advanced students/staff projects, postgraduate research and final year students’ projects.  In accordance with its establishing mandate, the CIS also renders and provides consultancies to individuals, and corporate bodies, small and medium enterprises outside FUTO.

The Centre has the capacity to produce in commercial quantities different tools and devices for revenue generation.
