FACULTY COURSES SYNOPSIS
Philosophy & Objectives
The University of Africa, Toru-Orua was envisioned as an ENTREPRENEURIAL University with the sole mandate of producing knowledge-based and highly skilled workforce that would galvanize development and growth of Africa’s agricultural, manufacturing, production, and service sectors of the economy through application of innovation, science, and new technologies. Consequent upon this vision, our philosophy and strategic objectives as a Faculty will be to interphase endogenous research and innovation, driven by the national, sub-regional and continental developmental needs and aspirations with functional, dynamic, and pragmatic academic programmes and courses.
We shall constantly innovate our processes and procedure to align with the international standards and rules of engagement in order to evolve or engender a system of teaching, learning and research that would provide the credible alternative to similar experiences as found in public universities in Nigeria and across African countries, particularly, in the quality of teaching/learning and research infrastructures/facilities, student discipline, internationalized curriculum, and to engage in community related services and activities that can generate business opportunities for the ultimate societal development and growth.
Therefore, our instructional materials are designed to facilitate interdisciplinary approach to building a broad-based knowledge and technical know-how in which students are offered courses across programmes and departments to ensure their marketability globally.
We intend to produce graduates who can be trusted, and who can deliver on the vision and strategic developmental objectives of institutions and organizations they work or build their careers. Consequently, our academic programmes and departments are strategically aligned to elicit or project our ultimate research interests or foci,
