Road Safety Academy To Award Degrees
Are you seeking an opportunity to learn about transportation management in a federal institution?
If yes, your opportunity is here.
Nigerians would soon be studying hard to bag a degree on Transport Management and Technology from Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC.
This is because FRSC Academy in Udi, Enugu State, is to be upgraded to a degree awarding institution.
FRSC Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, disclosed this on Friday after a meeting with Prof. Francis Eze, the Vice Chancellor of Federal University of Technology, Owerri.
He said the National University Commission, NUC has allowed the FRSC Academy to be affiliated to the university as a prerequisite for the upgrade.
The corps marshal said the meeting is to seek FUTO’s consent on the programme.
He said the FRSC might start with post graduate diploma programme and latter advance to Master’s degree.
“We are here on the directive of the NUC Executive Secretary in order to meet with its requirements to upgrade our institution.
“We have chosen to affiliate with your institution because we know that FUTO is among the best institutions in the nation offering transport-related causes,” Oyeyemi said.
Oyeyemi said that the NUC also wanted FRSC to run programmes in Sociology, Psychology and ICT aside from Transport Management Technology.
He said structures and facilities are on ground to kick start the programme and urged the university to give them the necessary support to enable them get the NUC accreditation.
