 The Philosophy of the Federal University of Technology, Akure is to produce practical-oriented graduates.  In line
with this Philosophy, the Department trains graduates with broad based knowledge of the various aspects of agriculture and a bias towards Agricultural Extension and Communication Technology. This is as a result of the need to make the Agricultural Extension Degree Programme of the university more in-depth in curriculum and more attractive to the public in terms of what it can offer and what the public can gain.  A full-fledged Department of Agricultural Extension and Communication Technology studies is designed to:
