Kogi: NUC approves more programmes for Confluence University, Osara


The National Universities Commission (NUC) has formally granted approval for the establishment of eight Science and Technology Education programmes at the Confluence University of Science and Technology (CUSTECH), Osara, Kogi State.

The registrar of CUSTECH, Olufunke Hudson disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.

The statement said the newly approved undergraduate programmes include Biology Education, Chemistry Education, Mathematics Education, Physics Education, Computer Science Education, Geography Education, Library and Information Science, and Technology Education, among others.

She noted that the programmes will run in a dedicated academic unit within the Faculty of Science and Technology Education, adding that the faculty has the necessary resources, human and material to train professional teachers.

Hudson said “The establishment of the programmes has become very important in view of the State Government’s determination to improve on quality and access to all levels of education in the state with the recent creation of more tertiary and technical educational institutions.

“Besides, Secondary and Technical institutions are the providers of the basic inputs into tertiary institutions and with the expansion of tertiary education in general, high-quality inputs into the institutions are in greater demand. It is therefore a compelling necessity that the quality of secondary and technical education be strengthened to enable them to perform the expected role in the education sector.

She stated that all the programmes of the University are currently accessible on the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) platform for interested candidates to select.
