HOD's Welcome Note


The Department of Estate Management offers a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) Honours Degree in Estate Management. The Department was established at Covenant University’s inception in 2002 because the founding fathers of the University realises that one, a developing country like Nigeria needs estate surveyors and valuers to assist in providing managing and carrying out improvements on buildings and infrastructure on one hand while at the same time expand urban property markets. Second, that only few Universities in the whole of Nigeria presently offer the Estate Management Course while many young graduates of Estate Management are mainly interested in practice. Third, that there is a need to create an atmosphere for the development of the total man via the vehicle of education and pioneering mental productivity to produce a new generation of leaders and solution providers. Through this approach, the University has been able to raise leaders in the area of supervision, management and control of interests in landed property through education, training and research with total commitment to marketability, truthfulness, entrepreneurship and fear of God. This will be achieved through an infusion of students with the seven core values of Covenant University: Spirituality, Integrity, Possibility Mentality, Responsibility, Diligence, Sacrifice and Capacity Building so as to give hope of good leadership qualities in graduates.

Our mission as a Department is to lead the real estate industry into the 21st century by providing benefits, services and education to real estate licensees. Students will be given opportunities to invest and to serve in many ways by going through courses in Building Construction, Town Planning, Land Law, Economics, Land Economics, Land Surveying. Introduce students to new dimensions of self reliance through two University wide courses, namely, Entrepreneurial Development Studies (EDS) and Total Man Concept (TMC). These would make the graduates job creators rather than job seekers and leaders fit spiritually, mentally balanced, emotionally stable and physically sound.
