CENTRE FOR INDUSTRIAL STUDIES (CIS)
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.
CENTRE FOR INDUSTRIAL STUDIES(CIS)
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.
Conscious of its mandate since inception and determined to achieve its assigned objectives, the CIS has strived overtime to remain relevant. It has done this through regular and periodic hands-on retraining of its staff.
FUTO has sponsored some staff for Engineering Conferences and Workshops, locally and internationally.
In the welding bay, welding procedures and practices on Manual Metal Arc Welding (MMAW) and gas welding are available.
Apart from the training of students on welding practices, other services such as the construction of metal gates, overhead-tank stand, fabrication of any type of cylinders, and cone development are rendered here.
