1981, the college operated on departmental basis and by that time there
were Department of mathematics and Science, Department of Civil
Engineering and so on. But in 1981, the College was divided into five
Schools including School of Science and Technology under which was the
Department of Physics and Mathematics. Statistics was then introduced in
this department as a programme with mathematical bias-admitting
students with only a minimum of five credits at Olevels including
Mathematics and Economics.
1984/1985 sessions, in accordance with the NBTE regulation, the name of
the Department was changed to Department of physical and mathematical
sciences. The name was again changed to Department of Mathematics and
Computer Science in 1985/86 session when Computer Science was introduced
into the department as a programme to reflect the new status. Again, in
1989, the department of Computer Science was carved out of the
department and the name became Department of Mathematics and Statistics.
The Department was later split into two in 2005 into Department of
Mathematics and Department of Statistics. The mathematics Department of
Yaba College of Technology offers service courses to all departments in
the College to enhance quality of the award of National Diploma (ND)(both Full-Time and Part-Time Programmes) and Higher National Diploma (HND) (Full-Time and Part-Time Programmes).
