It is hereby announced for the information of the general public the Delta State Polytechnic, Ozoro, has been upgraded to Delta State University of Science and Technology, Ozoro.
A Vice-Chancellor has also been appointed to spearhead the affairs of the University, in the person of Professor Jacob Schnapps Oboreh. It is important to note that Professor J. S. Oboreh was one time Rector of the defunct Delta State Polytechnic Ozoro. During his time, the polytechnic saw a tremendous increase in terms of Academic Excellence, Infrastructural developments as well as, accreditation of new programmes. It is therefore not surprising that His Excellency, the Governor of Delta State, Sen. (Dr.) Ifeanyi Okowa saw Prof. Oboreh fit to pioneer this university.
The Delta State Polytechnic, Ozoro was established by Law enacted on January 1, 2002 during the administration of His Excellency Chief James Onanefe Ibori. The Polytechnic was established along with two other polytechnics, at Ogwashi-Uku and Otefe-Oghara, and a College of Physical Education, Mosogar (now College of Education, Mosogar).
At the inception, the three polytechnics and College of Physical Education were managed as the Delta State Higher Education Project (DSHEP) in partnership with the University of Westminster, London. This arrangement was designed to fast track the development of the institutions.
