How It started and where we are today

Federal Science and Technical College, Uromi was established in 1999 alongside two other colleges, one in Tungbo, Bayelsa State and the other in Ikare-Akoko, Ondo State.
Credit must be given to Mr. Ibebunjo, an Ibo philanthropist, who established a Skills Acquisition/Trade Centre in 1963 and handed it over to his church, the Baptist, before leaving Uromi for his home town at the
outbreak of the Nigeria Civil War, 1967-1970.

The Church renamed it Esan Baptist Trade Centre. Thereafter, Bendel State Government took over the Centre from the Voluntary Agency, the Baptist Church and renamed it Uromi Technical College.
In 1999, the College became a Federal Unity College and took over the facilities of the then Uromi Technical College but the actual take off of the college was Sunday 5thNovember, 2000.

The College took off as Federal Technical College with Eight Departments:
1. Bricklaying, Blocklaying and Concreting (BBC),
2. Book-Keeping and Secretarial Studies (BKK/SS),
3. Catering Craft Practice (CCP),
4. Electrical Installation and Maintenance Work (EIM),
5. Radio Television and Electronic Work,
6. Furniture Making (FM),
7. General Studies (OS),
8.  Motor Vehicle Mechanics (MVM)

At the beginning of the 2002/2003 session, the name of the College, like
the others owned by the Federal Ministry of Education was changed from
Federal Technical College, Uromi to Federal Science and Technical
College, Uromi. This change in name brought the expansion of the college to include the Basic School, Technical and Senior Secondary (Science) schools making it three schools in one. Welding and Fabrication (WF) and Computer Craft Studies (CCS) have since been added to the Trade Courses offered in the College.
