Overview

It is with a deep sense of honour and privilege that we welcome you to the Department of Architecture, Covenant University, Ota, Nigeria. We are not in doubt that the timing of your visit is GOD chosen; and we want to use this opportunity to let you know where we were, and where we have strategically planned to be in the next few years. The Department of Architecture is one of the three departments in our School of Environmental Sciences established at the inception of Covenant University in October 2002. It is among the very few Departments of Architecture accredited in Nigeria by the National University Commission (NUC), Architects Registration Council of Nigeria (ARCON) and Nigerian Institute of Architecture (NIA) to run B.Sc, M.Sc and PhD degrees in Architecture. This is a clear testimony of the caliber of faculty, staff, teaching and research resources at our disposal as well as the quality of our programmmes. Feedback from the employers of our products shows that they are competing well with architecture graduates from older Schools of Architecture within and outside Nigeria. This may help to explain why on a yearly basis; the department is inundated with requests from employers of labour for our graduates. Our success story is based on our strategic approach of doing things in a different way and God’s grace available to us as drawn from our proprietor base.
