The Department was established by the Academic Board and coordinator was appointed by the management to coordinate the proposed Department in September 2007. The N.B.T.E Resource Inspection Team visited the Department in November 2007 and approval to admit students for ND Surveying and Geoinformatics granted with effect from October 2007. A substantive Head of Department was appointed in January 2008. The first batch of student was admitted for 2008/2009 session and full accreditation for the programme granted with effect from 1st. October, 2009 with two class streams of 30 students per stream. The National Diploma (ND) Programme commenced with 40 students in 2008/2009 session and second sets of 51 students were admitted for 2009/2010 session. The third sets of 51 students were admitted for 2010/2011 session while 40 and 39 students were admitted for 2011/2012 and 2012/2013 session respectively. Up to-date the Department has been admitting students through JAMB for ND programme. The approval to run Higher National Diploma (HND) was granted with effect from 1st October 2010 and Re-accreditation granted with effect from August 2016. The Higher National Diploma commenced with 4 students in 2010/2011 session and second set of 27 students in 2011/2012 session while 24 and 33 students were admitted for 2012/2013 and 2013/2014 respectively as third and fourth sets. Up to-date all candidates for admission to HND Programme had their one year post National Diploma Industrial attachment before they were admitted into the programme. The Surveying and Geoinformatics Department together with Urban and Regional planning, Building Technology, Estate Management, Quantity Surveying, Architectural Technology Dep[artments were constituted into the School of Environmental Studies in 2009. As at today, the School of Environmental Studies has grown in size with the establishment and accredited programmes in Art and Design and Transport Planning and Management Departments. Thus, having Eight (8) departments in the School of Environmental Studies.
