The School of Postgraduate Studies of Federal University of Technology, Yola (FUTY) was established in 1991. The School among other things would strengthen and reinforce the undergraduate programmes of the University, enhance staff development programme and produce high level manpower for the country. The School of Postgraduate Studies is empowered by Senate to enforce approved requirements and standards of postgraduate studies and to co-ordinate the postgraduate programmes of the various Schools in FUTY.
The functions of the School of Postgraduate Studies shall be exercised through and regulated by the Board of the School of Postgraduate Studies whose membership and functions are set out in section B (article 4) below.
The postgraduate programmes of FUTY are aimed at offering postgraduate training in selected disciplines and are directed towards seeking knowledge and solving problems in order to enhance the socio-economic and technological development of Nigeria. Indeed FUTY, through its postgraduate programmes, hopes to identify with the dynamic nature of the Nigerian society. Therefore, as much as possible, the curricula of the postgraduate programmes shall be synchronised to reflect appropriately the general developmental objectives of Nigeria. The areas of study are essentially those relevant to a University of Technology and the programmes are designed in such a way that
our graduates shall either be capable of self-employment or be relevant to technological and industrial establishments. The postgraduate programmes shall be undertaken through course work and research and/or any other modes as may be prescribed by the Senate. The practical components of the programmes shall be of paramount importance in order that the philosophy and objectives of the postgraduate programmes in FUTY shall be fulfilled.
