As part of its Vision and Mission in terms of the development of high-level skilled manpower for the Country, Council of the Federal University of Technology, Akure approved the establishment of the Board of Postgraduate Studies in 1986 which metamorphosed into School of Postgraduate Studies in 1994.
In pursuance of the primary objective of the Federal Government for the establishment of the Universities of Technology, the Postgraduate Programmes of the Federal University of Technology, Akure are intended to consolidate and build upon the solid intellectual and technological foundations which the undergraduate courses in the University have been most carefully designed to achieve.
