Newly admitted students of the Federal Polytechnic, Ile-oluji (FEDPOLEL) have been charged to work hard and be dedicated to their studies, so as to excel in their academic pursuit.
The Rector of the institution, Prof. Adedayo Fasakin stated this in his keynote address at the opening ceremony of a 2- day orientation programme organized for the 2018/2019 National Diploma (ND) students held at multipurpose hall of the institution in Ile-oluji.
Fasakin said that the orientation programme for the third set of full-time ND students was designed to give them the needed information and tips that will make their stay in the polytechnic successful.
He explained further that the programme was planned to provide the students with the necessary information on the polytechnic’s internal mechanisms and machineries of operations, and the rules and regulations of the school.
He posited that it will also guide them on how to settle down as soon as possible in order to concentrate on their studies.
Fasakin added that the school is determined to build a smart generation of students who will be good ambassadors of the nation in the nearest future.
The Rector equally informed that the collective efforts of the polytechnic’s pioneer staff led to the establishment of five academic programmes which include Accountancy, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Statistics.
He further hinted that the efforts of the staff also resulted in the accreditation and approval of these programmes by the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE),leading to the subsequent admission of the pioneer students in the 2016/2017 academic session.
Fasakin noted that the doggedness of the Management coupled with the commitment of the staff of the institution have also led to the successful completion of the first and second academic sessions in recorded time.
