12 students of the Federal University of Technology (FUTA) will complete their degree programmes at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU), U.S.


The selected students are beneficiaries of the academic exchange programme between FUTA and FAMU.

Adebiyi Daramola, professor and vice-chancellor, advised the students to be of good conduct and emulate their predecessors who had made the school proud, “I want you to make FUTA shine better”.

“Since the programme started, we have received positive reports about our students.  They have performed morally and academically well.  As I am talking to you, one of them, who went in 2014 will be completing his Doctorate in April, 2017.


“That is why I always say sky is not just the limit, but the starting point for the serious type.  Therefore, I urge you to utilise this rare opportunity to your full advantage.”

“Our collaboration with world class universities keep soaring”, Daramola added, as he disclosed that some of the students would be travelling to Germany next year for the same purpose.

Oladosun Olayinka, a student from the department of Metallurgical and Material Engineering (MME), on behalf of his colleagues, said they would be of great conduct and make both the school and their parents proud.


“I am really excited with this achievement; you cannot come by this opportunity in other institutions in Nigeria. It is a rare privilege that should not be abused”, said Chidinma Obinegbo, another beneficiary of the programme.
