Official Tour / Facilities inspection by Honorable Commissioner and Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, State of Osun to the College on Wednesday 27th May, 2020
Let me on behalf of the visitor to our Institution (The Governor of Osun State, Mr. Gboyega Oyetola), Management, Staff and Students welcome you all to Osun State College of Technology, Esa-Oke website www.oscotechesaoke.edu.ng.
Our Institution which is a fast growing College of Technology has produced graduates who have excelled and have made indelible marks in their various fields/ profession.
OSCOTECH Esa-Oke no doubt is a leading Technological institution and the hope of Technological breakthrough in Nigeria and Africa. She started as an erstwhile campus of the Polytechnic, Ibadan in January, 1993 with just Management Science and Engineering Courses. Today, under my watch, OSCOTECH has been witnessing tremendous growth in all facets of its physical, human and academic lives aimed at producing workforce that is equipped for challenges of today and tomorrow.
Presently, we have five (5) faculties with twenty-six (26) departments following the addition of eleven (11) new courses that were granted accreditation by the National Board for Technical Education (N.B.T.E) in April, 2019. The new courses approved are ND Taxation, ND Marketing, HND SLT Environmental Biology Option, HND SLT Biochemistry Option, ND Multimedia Technology, ND Office Technology and Management, ND Agricultural Technology, ND Library and Information Science, ND Computer Engineering Technology, ND Arts and Design, and ND Photographic Technology.
Apart from academic courses, our institution also offers enterprenueral courses which have been made mandatory by the National Board for Technical Education; Each Student is expected to learn a vocation as a prerequisite for graduating from the College.
Another important programme of the college is the OSCOTECH Life Empowerment Centre. It is a centre established by our institution to bridge the skills gap between the Conventional Education qualifications, professionalism, entrepreneurship and self-reliance. Its curriculum is designed to contain non-conventional training and short courses that is sufficiently current, dynamic and tailored to specific requirements of the present and future. Target beneficiaries of this centre include the unemployed, underemployed, retirees, professionals who want to be certified, and people of similar intents. The centre will be ever ready to partner with governments; local, state and federal as well as any other organization that is ready to prepare her workforce for today and tomorrow.
Finally, let me introduce you to OSCOTECH Academy of Science and Sports. It is a Secondary School with a difference. Its uniqueness is in the fact that, apart from emphasis on Science and Sports, students are introduced to trade subjects which they are also going to write as trade subjects in the WAEC final Examinations. Students in this academy are taught different sporting activities which will enable them pick a career in any sport of their choice. French Language is compulsory for all our students in order to make them internationally relevant.
