History

The Department of Estate Management and Valuation in the University of Calabar was established on the 4th of October 2018 with the approval of the University’s Senate. The brand-new department of Estate Management and Valuation (EMV) emerged alongside the Faculty of  Environmental Sciences, the departments of Surveying and Geoinformatics, Urban and Regional Planning, Architecture and the upgrading of a program:- Environmental Resources Management to a full-fledged department. These new departments evolved with the expansion of the Department of Geography and Environmental Science into a full-blown Faculty of Environmental Sciences. Hence, the Department of Estate Management & Valuation is domiciled in the Faculty of Environmental Sciences.

The Department commenced administrative activity immediately with the appointment of Dr. (Mrs.) Joy Eko Atu as the pioneer Head of the Department. However, academic activity kickstarted in the department with the 2019/2020 academic session when the department admitted its pioneer students after the resource verification by National University Commission.
