The Department of Building, formerly known as Department of Building Technology, was established in 2010 as one of the pioneer departments in the then School of Environmental Technology, SOET (Now School of Environmental Sciences, SOES). The Department started out with 42 pioneer students.
The Department of Building, FUTO, offers Building education through a designed course programme including classroom lectures, laboratory practicals, fieldwork, and work experience scheme. The package serves as a good springboard to the graduate Builder towards careers in building and construction Technology/management.
Since establishment in 2010, the department has grown from strength to strength due to input from qualified and highly experienced academic, technical/technological and administrative staff and associates alike. It has lecture rooms, offices and other facilities essential for undergraduate Building education.
The department’s curriculum is updated and enriched periodically to enhance efficiency and effectiveness.
