The National Universities Commission (NUC) has approved Confluence University of Science and Technology (CUSTECH) in Osara, Kogi state to offer 11 new undergraduate programmes.


Olufunke Hudson, the registrar of CUSTECH, said on Wednesday that the programmes include Biochemistry, Microbiology, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Mathematics, and Statistics.

Also listed among the newly approved undergraduate programmes are Computer Science, Cyber Security, Software Engineering, and Information Technology.

Abdulrahman Asipita Salawu, the vice-chancellor of CUSTECH, attributed accreditation to the dedication of both staff and students.


“We are delighted to have obtained full accreditation for all programmes tendered for evaluation, which serves as evidence of the commitment and effort put forth by our staff and students,” Salawu said.

“This achievement demonstrates our steadfast dedication to delivering a high-quality education that equips our students for prosperous futures.”

Salawu said the university is progressing with its academic development plans, having submitted applications for the establishment of six additional programmes to the NUC.


These proposed programmes, set to commence in the 2024/2025 academic session, include Medicine, Physiotherapy, Radiography, Law, Agriculture, and Agricultural Engineering.

The VC said the proposed teaching hospital facility for clinical training is already operational.

Hudson said the NUC also approved the establishment of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering, Marine Engineering, Petroleum and Gas Engineering, Anatomy, Physiology, Nursing Science, and Medical Laboratory Science.

She added that the programmes are now listed on the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) central processing system.
