Welcome to the Faculty of Environmental Sciences, University of Benin. Our Faculty is a young one founded in 2014. The Faculty currently has five departments which include the Department of Architecture, Estate Management, Geomatics (formerly called Surveying), and Quantity Surveying. Two other departments, Building Technology and Urban and Regional Planning are expected to join the above four departments in the future. The faculty is currently housed within the Faculty of Engineering and the development of the permanent site of the Faculty is in progress.
In the Faculty of Environmental Sciences, we intend to advance knowledge by educating a new generation of students who will help in solving the enormous resources, environmental and infrastructural challenges facing our country, Nigeria by judicious application of Science and Technology. To meet these challenges, the Faculty has acquired modern Digital equipment, sensors and computer workstations with other necessary hardware and software.
The University has recruited a crop of young multi-talented academic staff with varying international background and it is this that the faculty is leveraging on to create a sustainable science-intensive multi disciplinary programme that meets international requirement and acceptability. It is this drive for Global recognition and acceptability that has made the Faculty unique. And it is the result of these efforts that the faculty has gained global recognition by being admitted as academic member of the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) during the FIG working week held in Sofia, Bulgaria in May 2015.
The Faculty is currently, through the University, striving to enter into collaboration agreement with sister Institutions in USA, some EU countries and Russia.
There is simply no better place to pursue advanced training in meeting the challenges and exploring the opportunities in our environment than the Faculty of Environmental Sciences in UNIBEN. Come to us and be moulded.
