Uptonville Oil and Gas Institute was established on the 4th of February 2008. Her birth was informed by the consensus reached by the Technical and Vocational Educational Sector’s reform and particularly the Specifications Vocational Enterprise Institutions (VEIs) and Innovation Enterprise Institutions (IEIs) for an urgent need to establish institutions of learning that complement the existing ones with the aim of accommodating the ever increasing number of applicants, encouraging the private sector in the provision of such institution as well as bridge the between training provided by the already existing ones and the actual need of the people.
having applied for and also given a license of approval from the National Board for Technical Education, Federal Ministry of Education, Uptonville Oil and Gas Institute was established out of a deep sense of need, desire and passion to mitigate the above challenges among other potentials.
