Osun State College of Technology, Esa-Oke has a history of great academic achievements, and today, a leading technology based institution in Nigeria and Africa. Her sojourn into greatness started in January 1982 when the College became a satellite Campus of the Polytechnic, Ibadan. It became autonomous with the signing of the edict establishing it by the first Executive Governor of Osun State, Alhaji Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke on 12th October, 1992.

Today the College can boast of Thirty-one Programmes in Five Faculties made possible by the efforts of Rector Adegoke's led Management, with the support of the Governing Council and Staff of the Institution:This was so because the Management sought and got approval of the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) Kaduna to commence eleven (11) additional programmes and another four(4) additional programmes in 2019 and 2023 respectively.

OSCOTECH is certainly setting records. Our College is one of the few Polytechnics in Africa running Mechatronics Engineering and the very first in Nigeria to float Water Resources Engineering.

The centre also has provision for training the unemployed, underemployed, retirees, professionals who want to be Certified and people of similar intents in skills required in all workplace for professionalism, entrepreneurship and self reliance.
