About Faculty of Environmental Sciences

HISTORY OF THE FACULTY

The Faculty of Environmental Sciences was established in 2013 as a five Department Faculty, namely;

i.        Department of Architecture

ii.       Department of Estate Management

iii.      Department of Quantity Surveying

iv.      Department of Surveying and Geo-informatics

v.       Department of Urban and Regional Planning

The total number students registered in the Faculty which was about Two Hundred (200) in the beginning has risen to One Thousand One Hundred and Fifty Seven (1,157) as at 2019/2020 Academic Session.

TRANSITION OF B.SC (ARCHITECTURE) GRADUANDS TO M.SC (ARCHITECTURE) PROGRAM.

The University of Ilorin established the Department of Architecture alongside four other Departments in the Faculty of Environmental Sciences in the 2013/2014 Academic Session when a total number of twenty-nine students were admitted to study B.Sc (Architecture) program as in the first tier.

However, a total of twenty four (24) students eventually graduated with B.Sc (Architecture) in 2017, were required to transit to M.Sc (Architecture) program of the Department as a pre- requisite in the study of Architecture. In the light of the above, since the graduands were to transit, the Postgraduate school is now required to absorb them into the Masters of Science Degree (M.Sc) in Architecture.
