The College of Food Technology and Human Ecology evolved from the College of Food Technology to accommodate more relevant and related courses following the approval of University Senate in 2018. The College currently runs three courses at the undergraduate level viz; Food Science and Technology (FST), Home Science and Management (HSM) and Nutrition and Dietetics. The FST and HSM Departments offer Postgraduate studies leading to the award of Postgraduate Diploma, Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy.
The College has a retinue of academics including ten staff members at the professorial cadre with training, expertise and research interests in diverse areas of Food, Nutrition and Home Management Sciences. Total enrollment in the College currently stands at over 700 students.
The College is housed in a magnificent complex at the centre of the University’s main campus situated in Makurdi, the capital city of Benue State, the ‘Food Basket of the Nation’.
On behalf of staff and students of the College of Food Technology and Human Ecology, I warmly invite prospective students and other partners to join us as we strive to understand and address the hydra-headed challenges in Food, Nutrition and Home Management in the North-Central geopolitical zone of Nigeria and beyond.
Professor Joseph Oneh Abu, FNIFST
