BRIEF HISTORY OF THE DEPARTMENT
The department was established in 2005/2006 academics to cater for the need to train and produce the required manpower in the following disciplines; Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics and Statistics to drive the development of the nation. The undergraduate degree programme in Computer Science is the main programme in the department during the 2005/2006 academic session while Physics, Mathematics and Statistic Units started as a servicing unit of the faculty before the takeoff approval for the award of B.Sc. (Physics), B.Sc. (Mathematics) and B.Sc. (Statistic) was granted to the University through the Nigeria University Commission approval in 2011/2012 academic session. Consequently, students were admitted at 100 level in 2012/2013 academic session for these programmes. The accreditation for the commencement of B.Sc. Physics with Electronics and B.Sc. Industrial Mathematics programme was granted in 2018/2019 academic session following the recommendation National University Commission (NUC) accreditation team in 2016. Due to growing population of student and staff, the 95th Senate Congregation granted autonomy to the computer science unit to become a full blown department. The department now admits student for B.Sc. degree in Physics, Physics with Electronics, Mathematics and Industrial Mathematics and Statistics.
