FST UNDERGOES NUC ACCREDITATION SCRUTINY

The Department of Food, Science and Technology, Federal University of Technology, Minna has undergone the mandatory National Universities Commission (NUC) accreditation exercise aimed at ensuring that the programme meets with the Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards (B-MAS).

The members of the accreditation team were in the University between June 15 and 17, 2017 to look at the department’s curriculum and other aspects as laid down in NUC guidelines for accreditation.

Speaking while presenting the team’s preliminary report to the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Musbau Adewumi Akanji FNSBMB, FAS,  in company of other University top brass at the Boardroom, School of Science and Technology Education, Bosso Campus, the leader of the team, Prof. Charles Ariahu from University of Agriculture, Makurdi, expressed appreciation to the University Management for the warm reception accorded the team during the course of carrying out the exercise, stating that the University is a good host.

Prof. Ariahu commended the department for ensuring that the philosophy of the course was adequate and clearly defined to address the problem of food security in the country while advising that some courses need to be added to the curriculum in order to meet the NUC B-MAS.

“We are happy with the fact that more than 70 percent of the departmental staff are Ph.D. holders in different fields of food, science and technology,” he said.

He urged the University Management to ensure timely completion of the second phase of the School of Agriculture and Agricultural Technology so that the department would have more places to house some of its laboratory equipment which he noted would boost teaching, learning and research.

Responding, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Akanji thanked members of the accreditation team for working hard within two days to look at the department’s programme. He disclosed that the department is dear to the University and that Management would do everything possible to make sure that the programme scales through the accreditation exercise.

The VC praised the new system of programme accreditation exercise introduced by the Executive Secretary of NUC, Prof. Abubakar Rasheed on assumption of office, adding that the system is favourable to the accreditation panel and the University.
