The Director of Academic Planning and Quality Assurance (DAP) of OSUSTECH, Okitipupa, Prof. Francis Igbasan has expressed optimism that all the nine academic programmes in the University's Faculty of Science will be re-accredited fully by the National Universities Commission (NUC). Prof. Igbasan gave the assurance recently during a chat with OSUSTECH News. According to him,
the reports of the panels about the programmes that have been assessed so far have been very positive. So, I don't envisage any problem. I am hopeful that we will get full re-accreditation for the seven programmes assessed so far. I am equally hopeful that we shall record successes in the remaining two. We have been meeting the NUC's standards and requirements.He disclosed that the seven programmes assessed so far by the NUC Accreditation panels at various dates included Industrial Chemistry, Physics, Botany, Zoology, Computer Science, Fisheries and Mathematics. Those of Microbiology and Geophysics would have been assessed by mid November, 2018, he stated. Igbasan commended the Ondo State Government for releasing funds for the accreditation exercise. "Though, the fund may not be enough, but it has assisted us to be able to acquire laboratory equipment and furniture for offices, as well as taken care of parts of NUC's accreditation demands," he remarked. He equally commended the Vice- Chancellor, Prof. Sunday Roberts Ogunduyile for being very supportive and motivating. Igbasan lauded all the Principal Officers, Lecturers and Staff of the various departments of various programmes due for re-accreditation and members of the University Community at large for their roles, co-operation and team spirit.
Ondo State Governor, Arakurin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, has tasked the Management of Rehoboth Centre for Advanced Technology to ensure a working and mutually productive partnership with OSUSTECH.
History was made on March 21, 2019 as the Governing Council of Ondo State University of Science and Technology (OSUSTECH) Okitipupa appointed Prof. Francis Igbasan its first Deputy Vice Chancellor.
