Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology (OAUSTECH), Okitipupa is a state-owned university with a mission to provide sound scientific, technological, and professional training. It identifies technological needs and problems, solving them within the context of community and national needs for sustainable development. The University was established in the year 2008 by the Ondo State Government as Ondo State University of Science and Technology (OSUSTECH), Okitipupa, but had the name changed recently to Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology (OAUSTECH) in 2019.

Undergraduate academic activities commenced in the University in the year 2011 with ten (10) academic programmes in four (4) Departments in the Faculty of Science (now School of Science). The academic programmes are Botany, Zoology, Microbiology, and Fisheries and Aquaculture in the Department of Biological Sciences; Biochemistry and Industrial Chemistry in the Department of Chemical Sciences; Computer Science in the Department of Computer Sciences; Mathematics in the Department of Mathematical Sciences; and Physics and Geophysics in the Department of Physical Sciences. All the undergraduate programmes were fully accredited by the National Universities Commission (NUC). Each of the Departments had graduated at least five sets of students, with university, several candidates from other Universities, and some of the University Assistant Lecturers have started to pursue their postgraduate studies in OAUSTECH.

Apart from the academic courses, the School also runs additional Postgraduate Programmes in Professional and Diploma Courses such as Master in Agribusiness Management, Public Administration, Business Administration, Doctor of Business Administration in Centre for Government and Business Technology, Master in Environmental Management, Disaster Risk Management, Doctor of Environmental Management in Centre for Blue Economy and Innovation, and one-year Diploma in Education and other Science Education courses in the Institute of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Education.

Apart from the fact that the University is fully matured for postgraduate studies, the eagerness of several candidates to pursue their postgraduate studies in OAUSTECH, coupled with the need to facilitate meaningful research activities in the University, make the establishment of the Postgraduate School and the commencement of postgraduate studies in the University a mandatory task. This prospectus is a comprehensive compilation of information on all the available postgraduate programmes and activities of the Postgraduate School, including the curricula for the available courses. It contains the rules and regulations governing the award of postgraduate degrees. It also provides the specific information on the configuration, administration, and activities of the Postgraduate School and the component departments. Furthermore, the prospectus highlights the admission requirements, academic performance grading system, graduation requirements, and other essential information.

I use this opportunity to appreciate the University Management, Governing Council, the Senate, and the Visitor of the University for granting approval and providing the enabling environment for the smooth running of the Postgraduate School and to wish our prospective postgraduate students a fruitful and successful academic career in the University.

God bless you all.
