The Department started as an integral part
of the Town and Regional Planning in October, 1982 as Town Planning and Estate
Management Department. She gained her
autonomous as a Department in 1994/95.
a section of the parent Department, it started off with an intermediate
certificate course in Estate Management in October 1982. In October 1983, the National Diploma in
Estate Management was added with an initial population of 33 students. By 1986, the latter course was simultaneously
accredited with the proposed Higher National Diploma (HND) programme.
HND course did not commence until in the 1988/89 section with an initial
population of 18 students. However, the
HND programme which was provisionally accredited by NBTE was discontinued
barely three years after its commencement having failed the ‘acid ‘test of the NBTE in
relation to quality/quantity of staff and the status of the section which was
then a subordinate unit within the Department.
ND in Estate Management programme has grown over the years to become one of the
most popular courses in the polytechnic with impressive turnouts of students,
with good academic performances and its re-accreditation by NBTE took place
recently and successfully from 16th – 18th February, 2017
running of the HND programme commenced in 1997/98 when the Department was
re-accredited in ND and the visitation panel from the NBTE approved the
commencement of the HND programme in 1997.
