AKSU is a young and growing University with a student population of 5,838, studying for full-time degree programs in the 6 faculties. There are 465 academic staff with 36 Professors in various disciplines. There is an active program of staff training to ensure that all academic staff acquire higher degrees, with emphasis on PhD degrees.
We place great premium on our quality of teaching and research, and are focused on the expansion of excellence and diversity of our research across disciplines. We believe that the integration of teaching and research must be maintained, if the students are to ultimately benefit from exposure to constantly expanding frontiers of knowledge.
In furtherance of our desire to expand the use of ICT in the University, broadband internet access has been extended to fully cover the 2 campuses of the University. The deployment of fibre optic cables in a bid to have a robust intranet/internet connectivity is in progress. The University among other things, deploys software applications to automate most of its processes.
The University has an ultra-modern Theatre Arts Studio and a state-of-the-art English language laboratory. We are also collaborating with the Government of Akwa Ibom State to diversify into various commercial agricultural enterprises, to ensure food sufficiency. We will continue to be proactive in meeting the demands of a growing, dynamic and changing community of staff, students and other stakeholders. Our goal is to be the institution of choice for prospective students and people seeking a future in academics.
We look forward to welcoming you to Akwa Ibom State University.
