College of Science and Technology

At the inception of Covenant University in 2002 and up till 2009, there were three Colleges: College of Business Studies (CBS), College of Human Development (CHD) and College of Science and Technology (CST).

In 2009/2010 academic session, the number of Colleges in the University was reduced to two with the merging of the College of Business Studies and the College of Human Development to form the College of Development Studies (CDS). Six Schools were created, three in each of the Colleges.

The Schools in the College of Science and Technology were the School of Engineering and Technology (SET), School of Environmental Sciences (SES) and School of Natural and Applied Sciences (SNAS). In the 2014/2015 academic session, the number of Colleges was increased to four with each College having two Schools.

The four Colleges are the College of Business and Social Sciences (CBSS), College of Leadership Development Studies (CLDS), College of Engineering and College of Science and Technology (CST).In 2015/2016 academic session, the Colleges existed without Schools.

WELCOME TO
SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY

It is with great delight and gratitude to God that I welcome you to the College of Science and Technology (CST) comprising Departments of Architecture, Building Technology, Estate Management, Biological Sciences, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer and Information Sciences, Mathematics and Physics.

Each of the Departments has articulated its specific mission and objectives as well as the specifics of its academic programmes in line with the vision and mission of the College. A total of eleven academic programmes are offered by the nine departments in the College. All the programmes were crafted with a view to producing job-ready graduates in science and technology with appropriate IT skills and capacity for independent thinking, creativeness and resourcefulness. The curricula of the programmes are unique, robust, current and comparable to the best in the world. They are designed not only to meet and surpass the basic academic standards prescribed by regulatory authorities in Nigeria but also to equip our students thereby making them spiritually buoyant, intellectually resourceful and physically fit to emerge as leaders in their chosen disciplines and solution providers in areas of their future endeavours.

We have modern ICT-driven and interactive teaching/learning facilities, state-of-the-art laboratories and workshops, and a rare crop of eminent scholars, committed and highly motivated faculty and staff. These, coupled with the unique serene and green environment of Covenant University, will certainly make learning in the College a pleasurable experience.

The Academic Handbook contains details of prescribed courses and other specific requirements for all programmes offered in the College at the undergraduate level. It is intended to provide precise information to students, parents and everyone interested in the academic programmes of the College of Science and Technology.
