HISTORY OF THE PROGRAMME/SUB-DISCIPLINE/DISCIPLINE

The Department of Food Science and Technology started in July 25, 2012 (2012/2013 academic session) with a vision to become one of the best in the nation in the near future. The philosophy of the department is to marry theory with practical and hence produce innovative graduates who will be empowered to strengthen the weak or virtually nonexistent manufacturing base of Nigeria in particular and Africa in general. This philosophy is the bedrock of the Food Science and Technology undergraduate of Federal University Oye-Ekiti. The 5-year programme was formally under the faculty of engineering and was later moved to the faculty of agriculture.

The programme began with 6 students in 2012 for the 2011/2012 academic session with a senior lecturer (as the acting Head of the department), 1 lecturer II, a graduate assistant, 3 technologist, HEO & a C.O. Dr. M.O Oluwamukomi was the pioneer head of the department. In 2012/2013 academic session the department admitted 27 students with Dr. (Mrs.) E.M. Ogunbusola as the H.O.D and the staff strength has increased academic staffs, technologist and non academic staff.
