Welcome to the School of Science


About

The School of Sciences came into existence in 1999 under the name: School of Computer and Science Education. By then, it comprised of three departments, namely: Science Education, Mathematics and Computer Education departments.

In compliance with the Academic Board directive in 2001, the Science Education department of the School was divided into three (3) departments: Physics, Chemistry and Biology Education. Students of the School combined their Science courses with Computer Science leading to the award of NCE in Computer Science with options in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. These programmes stated above were accredited by the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) in 2005 when Computer Studies and Physics Education were given partial accreditation. In 2007, the two courses were reaccredited and given full approval.

Integrated Science Education department was formally created under the School of Sciences in 2011. This department took off in the 2011/2012 Academic Session. In the same 2011/2012 Academic Session, a new department, Physical and Health Education was created and took off immediately. This brought the number of departments offering NCE Courses to seven as summarised below:

  • Mathematics Education 1999
  • Computer Science Education 1999
  • Biology Education 2001
  • Chemistry Education 2001
  • Physics Education 2001
  • Integrated Science Education 2011
  • Physical and Health Education 2011

Following the affiliation of the Federal College of Education (Technical), Umunze to Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, six departments in the School of Sciences now offer courses at the Degree level. These include:

Department Year Established
  • Biology Education 2010/2011 Session
  • Chemistry Education 2010/2011 Session
  • Mathematics Education 2010/2011 Session
  • Integrated Science Education 2010/2011 Session
  • Computer Science Education 2014/2015 Session
  • Physics Education 2014/2015 Session

In the School of Sciences, students are trained to acquire skills in their various disciplines to enable them teach competently and/or become self-employed after school. Deans that headed the School of Sciences include:

  • Dr. A.A. Okafor - 1999 - 2002, 2008 - 2009, 2013 - 2014.
