Our History

The Department of Project Management Technology is one of the five Departments that constitutes the nucleus of the School of Management Technology (SMAT) of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO). The Department was established in 1982 while it admitted its first batch of Undergraduates in 1983/84 academic year. This first batch was made up of eight (8) Undergraduate students. The eight students successfully graduated in the 1987/88 academic year. At inception, the Department had only two full-time academic staff as against the current twenty (20) full-time academic staff. Currently, the Undergraduate student population continues to grow and the Department is finding it difficult to admit all the candidates that apply due to space capacity and staff/student ratio NUC BMAS.

The Department also runs programmes at the Post Graduate Diploma, MBA, M.Sc and PhD levels with specializations in Industrial Technology, Construction Project Management and ICT Project Management.
