With gratitude to God I am highly delighted to welcome you to the Faculty of Physical Sciences, comprising six Departments, namely; Departments of Physics, Pure & Applied Chemistry, Geology, Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science. The Faculty of Physical Sciences was created out of Faculty of Physical Sciences on October 1, 2015 with Professor Benedict Iserom Ita as her Pioneer Dean.
Each of the departments has a well-articulated specific mission and objectives as well as its specific academic programmes in line with the vision and mission of the Faculty.
