A Brief History of the Creation, Past and Current Leadership of the Department:
The Department of Physics was established in 1982. It started temporarily from Christ’s School Ado-Ekiti with three members of staff and six students. The pioneer staff was Prof Akin Ojo, Dr. S.A. Adjei and Mr. I.O. Ajala. However, in 1985, the Department moved to more spacious and better furnished offices and laboratories on the Mini-campus situated along Ado-Iworoko road. Since the Department moved to the mini-campus, the Department has been making tremendous growth in students’ enrollment, staffing and research activities.

From 1985, the staffing position improved remarkably through lecturers who came from Universities of Ibadan, Ife and Ilorin, either on sabbatical leave or as part-time lecturers. The members of academic staff in 1985 were Prof J.B. Aladekomo – Visiting Professor, Dr. S.A. Adjei – Reader and Acting Head of Department, Mr. I.P. Farai – Assistant Lecturer and Mr. M.O. Olatona (Graduate Assistant). Part-Time Lecturers included Dr. O.A. Odundun, Dr. J. Oyedele, Dr. J.O. Olowolafe, Dr. O. Ajala, Dr. G.A. Adegboyega, Dr. S.A. Adeniran, Dr. T. Kuku and Mr. O. Jegede. The current Head of Department is Prof. I.O. Mukolu.
