The idea to create the Office of Quality Assurance and Productivity FUT Minna was hatched in 2009, following the NUC’s directive instructing all Nigerian Universities to do so. By the year 2010, the QAP Office was created at FUT Minna as a part of Academic Planning Unit. Though in existence, it was not fully operational in carrying out its mandate as envisaged by the NUC.
However, in February 2011, the University Management in its proactive policy decision and in compliance with the NUC’s directive excised out of Academic Planning Unit, the Quality Assurance and Productivity section and made it a separate Unit under the Vice- Chancellor’s Office. The office is currently headed by a Director who is also a Professor in the School of Science and Science Education who reports directly to the Vice-Chancellor.
