FUTO New Registration Deadline Announced for 2017/2018 Session
Following passionate appeals by the Student Union Government, the Vice-Chancellor has magnanimously approved on behalf of the Senate, an extension of the deadline for payment of fees and registration for 2017/2018 Academic Session up to February 15th, 2018.
Students who are yet to pay fees and register are advised to avail themselves of the opportunity of the extension or run the risk of paying late registration fees or withdrawing voluntarily from the 2017/2018 Academic session.

The Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO) is a federal government university in Ihiagwa town, a 12-minute drive from Owerri, the capital of Imo State. The University is bounded by the communities of Eziobodo, Umuchima, Ihiagwa and Obinze, Imo State, Nigeria. It is the premier federal university of technology in the south east and south south parts of Nigeria.
FUTO began with 225 students and 60 staff (28 academic and 32 non-academic). Like other federal universities in Nigeria, FUTO is headed by a Chancellor who is usually a royal father, and followed by a Vice Chancellor who oversees the daily activities of the university.
The school also has a senate, which is the highest decision making arm of the University. FUTO students are fondly called Futoites and they number over 22,000. FUTO has over 50 professors. The current vice-chancellor is Professor Francis C. Eze.
