About the School of
Innovative Technology (SIT)

The School of Innovative Technology is one of the two Schools created in the University in
2009. The creation of the school was in response to the concern of the Federal Government
and the directive of the National Universities Commission (NUC) on the need to produce
graduates with the academic and professional skills that promote self-employment and reduce
over dependence on paid employment. This concern is predicated on the high level of
unemployment among graduates and the over-dependence on paid employment.

The school commenced academic activities with staff and students transferred from related
disciplines, particularly from the School of Environmental Technology of the University. As a
fast-growing University of Technology, where modern courses in Technology, Engineering
and ICT have been established, that is located in a rapidly expanding city, with close
proximity to Abuja, Kaduna, and other cities, FUT Minna is an ideal location for such school.


The vision of the school is to be a leading centre of academic excellence in entrepreneurship education through the application of technology in the fields of transportation management, project management, and entrepreneurship and business management


To transform the country from a less developed economy into a highly competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy through the promotion of entrepreneurship, leadership and innovation.
