1.0 INTRODUCTION 

Economic growth and development of nations to a large extent has depended on the provision of basic infrastructure that supports production activities. Effective development of infrastructure in an economy, however is a function of efficiency of Project Management practices (design, development and implementation). The risk of successful projects’ delivery most often correlates strongly with its technical, technological and socioeconomic complexities. Interestingly, effective application of technology provides seamless mechanisms for managing the projects’ complexities.   Hence there is an increasing demand for trained manpower that are technically, technologically and managerially knowledgeable and skilled to work as project management professionals in all sectors of the economy (construction, industrial, communications, energy, communication, information technology, solid mineral development etc) of the Nigerian economy.  

The B. Tech Project Management and Technology (PMT) is designed to provide a sustainable platform for training and development of critical human capital needed for effective projects’ delivery in Nigeria and the world at large.  The Project Management and Technology Programme is a blend of Science, Engineering, Technology, Mathematics (STEM) and Management based disciplines. On completing the programme, students will be able to apply technology to: designing, planning, implementing, controlling, monitoring project processes as well as carrying out post-projects impact assessments and evaluations. 

The Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech.) programme in Project Management and Technology is in an interface between STEM and Operations Management that strategically provides a blend of multi-disciplinary technical and techno-managerial knowledge and skills that enables its graduates, be multi skilled and talented.

The programme is designed to ensure that aside having broad based knowledge theories, principle and practices of Project Management, student must have an area of concentration, which includes: Construction, Industrial, Communication Technology or Energy/Power projects.

  • Mining and Solid minerals development
  • Environment
  • Financial Services.
  • International organizations (World Bank, USAID, UNICEF, WHO, AFDB, EU etc).
  • Oil and Gas.
  • Public Sector.
  • Private Sector
  •  
  • Commerce and General Services
  • Non-Governmental/Non-Profit

 

ENTRY REQUIREMENT INTO THE PROGRAMME

Admission into the B. Tech  Project Management and Technology programme would be by either through the University Matriculation Examination (UME) or through Direct Entry.

 

ADMISSION THROUGH UME

In addition to an acceptable pass JME, candidates must have passed at least five (5) papers at (OL) at Credit Level from any of the approved public examination bodies in Nigeria in not more than two sittings. The required subjects are English Language, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Economics, Biology/Agricultural Science, and Geography. The passes must be from the same examination body.

 

DIRECT ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

In addition to the five papers at the ordinary level for the UME candidates, direct entry candidates must possess three (3) requisite papers at Higher School Certificate (HSC) or GCE. Advanced level or OND or HND in appropriate areas preferably at Upper Credit Levels. Holders of OND are eligible for admission into year II provided that their programmes cover certain basic courses offered in the department up to the second year. Mostly students from Project Management and Technology related programs, Mechanical, Chemical, Polymer Engineering, Quantity Surveying, Building, Estate Management, Architecture, Project Management, Urban and Regional Planning, Civil Engineering. While HND holders are eligible for admission into year III depending on the appropriateness of their requisite academic qualification.

 

Inter-University Transfer Mode

Students can be admitted through this mode into 200-Level of the programme, provided they have the requisite O- level qualifications as prescribed above and a minimum CGPA of 2.00. Students who transfer from other universities shall be credited with only those courses deemed relevant to the programme, which they have already passed prior to their transfer.  Such students shall however be required to pass the minimum number of units specified for graduation for the number of sessions there are left to spend in the Faculty. Thus, no student on transfer shall spend less than six semesters (3 sessions) in order to earn a degree.  Students who transfer from another programme in the Faculty for any approved reason shall be credited with those units passed that are within the curriculum of the programme they had transferred.  Appropriate decisions on transfer cases shall be subjected to the approval of Senate on the recommendation of the Faculty Board.

 

5.3 Programme Structure
