The Federal University of Petroleum Resources, Effurun (FUPRE), Delta State, Nigeria was established in March 2007 under a Federal Government of Nigeria initiative to build a specialized University to produce unique high-level manpower and relevant expertise for the Oil & Gas sector in Nigeria and worldwide.
At first, it occupied the PTI Conference centre, Effurun Delta state, which is a few kilometres away from the permanent site. The new site covered large hectares of land generously leased by the chiefs and people of Uviwe kingdom.
FUPRE is the first of its kind in Africa and it is destined to be the premier international institution of choice with state-of-the-art facilities to provide the petroleum and allied sectors, world-class education, training, research, consultancy, and extension services.
FUPRE organises its academic activities along college lines. Under this arrangement, related Departments are grouped to form a College without an intervening tier of faculties.
Colleges are by no means self-sufficient as the University encourages an inter-disciplinary approach to all its teaching and research activities.
The foundational College of the University was the College of science with 113 foundation students. The foundation students began their courses at FUPRE, in May 2007.
The College not only enrolls its own students but serves as a support for other colleges to be established. The General Studies and Entrepreneurship Unit was also established in the College to coordinate all programs of the University aiming at producing rounded graduates with entrepreneurial skills.
The Vision of the University is to be the premier international institution with state-of-the-art facilities to provide for the petroleum and allied sectors, world-class education, training, research, consultancy, and extension services.
To create a top-quality human resource in order to enhance the local content in the Oil & Gas and Energy industry of the country.
To design, develop and deliver cutting-edge education and training programs for professionals in the industry.
To engage in research, consultancy, and development activities in all technical and managerial aspects of the oil & gas sector.
To take the leadership role in promoting the economic development of the immediate community and the society at large through specific education, training, and outreach activities.
The University has its philosophy “To promote the advancement of knowledge and produce graduates who are technopreneurs with concern for the promotion of environmentally friendly technological solutions in the practice of their profession”
