According to the NUC, Tech-U is seventh in the ranking of state universities and 27th among the 113 institutions ranked nationally.

He said, “The First Technical University is an institution with a novel vision and mission. Our philosophy is to develop brains and train the hands.

“We pay a lot of attention to entrepreneurial and vocational development as much as we build scholarship in our students. We are just four years old in the journey and now the NUC has rated us seventh among the many state universities and 27th among all the universities in Nigeria – federal and also private ones.

“We are energised by this ranking. We can only say that we are challenged to do better.”
