He also applauded the founding fathers of the institution for laying a good foundation and worthy legacy.

The VC also added that the curriculum which made it mandatory for all intakes to register and offer same courses at the 100 level had continued to put the university ahead of its peers.

An online statement dated Sept. 4, disclosed that the university's representatives won the contest.

Gbadegesin said some other students whose course of study was not related to ICT had also won other ICT related awards.

He urged students of the institution to remain good ambassadors of the university.

Some members of the team are: Adedoyin Jelili, Olayanju Abiodun and Adeosun Oluwole of Mechanical Engineering Department.

Others are Adesina Jamiu and Akadiri Olawole, both of the Urban and Regional Planning Department, while Salami Ismaila is of the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry.
