Welcome to the Department of Architecture

Vision

The programme is aimed at producing competent, creative, skilled, ethical, public spirited, intellectually mature, socially responsible, environmentally sensitive and well balanced students in theory and practice, capable of facing a broad spectrum of challenges associated with the design and construction of spaces for human activities.

History

The department was established in 2011 as Landscape discipline in the School of Environmental Technology and changed to Department of Architecture in 2012. Since its establishment, undergraduate courses in the department have always been accredited by the National Universities Commission (NUC) as well as the Architects Registration Council of Nigeria (ARCON).

The department offers a 5-year Programme leading to a Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) Degree in Architecture.

A career in architecture offers diverse challenges for students interested in creative design and construction of spaces for human activities. And thus for the upcoming Architect, patience becomes a virtue as it takes many years to build a profile as an Architect.

The programme accordingly offers a sound foundation for students from the point of entry to the full membership grade of the Nigerian Institute of Architects (NIA) and Architects Registration Council of Nigeria (ARCON).
