Welcome to Chemical Science

WELCOME TO CHEMICAL SCIENCE DEPARTMENT.

 

The department of chemical science was carved out from the former Department of Science Technology in November 1998, to train students at the National Diploma level in Science Laboratory Technology. The training responsibility also extends to training student for the award of the Higher National Diploma in Chemistry and Biochemistry. The department is also actively involved in research development with endogenous research group in areas of specializations in the chemical Science within and outside Yaba College of Technology. Indeed the department is involved in collaborative work with some public research institutions within Lagos.

Over the years, the skills acquired by diplomats of programmes run by other department have been in great demand by public and private institutions and establishments within and beyond the shores of Nigeria.

The achievement of the department in efficient knowledge and skills delivery is widely acknowledged enough now to the extent that ND diplomates of the department are gaining direct access to programme in Medicine, Pharmacy, Agriculture,  Engineering, etc within and  outside Nigeria.

 

The department has on its roll over six hundred students for various programmes and about Thirty members of competent, effective, efficient and well-qualified staff. The department has about five senior academic staff on study leave for doctorate degrees in such world class as students in Howard University, Washington DC, USA and University of Otago, New Zealand and Rhodes University , South Africa

 

The department is actively involved in the training of students at the Higher National Diploma level in other such departments as Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences, Polymer and Textile Technology, Food Technology, Metallurgical Engineering, Printing Technology, etc.

 The department is involved in the training of students for the award of the Bachelor of Science  in Vocational and technical Education programme in collaboration with the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. The national Universities Commission recently re-accredited this B.Sc programmes based on their satisfaction with resources  human and material  for running the programme.
