Medical Laboratory Science Department

Overview of the Department

To provide excellence in training to augment the daily demands in medical expertise for medical treatment and diagnosis, the department of Medical Laboratory Technology was established in September 2018 under the Faculty of Applied Sciences. The department currently runs the only 4-year Bachelor of Technology Programme at the University.

The programme was created to provide graduates of Senior High Schools and Technical Schools the unique opportunity to pursue a Bachelor of Technology in Medical Laboratory Science. More so the programme offers graduates with HND Science Laboratory Technology to venture into other Life Science disciplines working in clinical laboratories to obtain a professional license after completion of the BTech Medical Laboratory Science programme.

Graduates of BTech Medical Laboratory Science are resourced to work as licensed professionals in public and private hospitals and health facilities in the districts and regions across the country.
