Laspotech history:
Lagos State has grown to become Nigeria's most buoyant state in Nigeria. Its progress, development and growth emanate both from its dynamism as the nations commercial/cultural melting pot and from the commendable foresight of successive administrations that had governed the state. Lagos State proudly displays prominent characteristics that distinguish it from other administrative and political units in Nigeria, Abuja inclusive. The states obvious achievements have made it qualify for a leading position among the foremost modern industrial settlements in Africa.

Lagos State lies to the southwestern part of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on the West Coast of Africa. It has boundaries with Ogun state both in the North and East. It is also bounded in the West by the Republic of Benin and in the south, it stretches for over 180 kilometers along the Coast of the Atlantic Ocean. It is pertinent to note that despite its sprawling population, constant reconstruction, renovation and incessant traffic jams, Lagos still offers a lot of satisfaction to visitors and its inhabitants. This is because it has its own unique attractions which have made a lot of people develop a romantic attachment for the City and choose to remain or return to Lagos despite all odds.

The city is famous for its multidimensional cultural heritage with the major occupation of the inhabitants being fishing. However muchof the city’s economic strength arises from the situation of a large number of industries, and the new technologies, as well as from financial service, the media industries and major tourist attractions.

Lagos is a bustling, social city with varying traditional festivals, carnivals and other attractions such as theatres, cinema house, and other cultural attractions. With a vibrant administration at the canter, supported by 57 Local Government areas of which the Ikorodu Local Government that hosts the main Campus of the Polytechnic is one.

In 1975, the Lagos State Government decided to approve the establishment of a College of Science and Technology as the first Lagos State owned tertiary institution. The Lagos State Edict No 1 of 1978 effective from 1st June, 1977 gave the college its legal existence. In January 1978, classes commenced at a temporary site, now the Isolo Campus of the Institution. In 1986, the Lagos State Government changed the name of the Institution from the Lagos State College of Science and Technology to the Lagos State Polytechnic.

The Polytechnic is concluding efforts to move from its hitherto Multi Campus nature to a monocampus Institution. Sequel to the movement of the seat of Administration to the Ikorodu permanent Campus, the Polytechnic was operating a multi-campus system with four campuses namely, Ikorodu, Ikosi, Isolo and Surulere, all located within Lagos metropolis. With effect from May 2000, the Ikorodu Campus took over from the Isolo Campus as the seat of administration of the Polytechnic and the Permanent Campus of the Institution.

Since the giant step was taken in year 2000 the institution has moved virtually all its Schools and Departments, while plans are also at advanced stages to move the few remaining Departments and Schools to the Ikorodu Campus in the nearest future. It is pertinent to note that the Polytechnic will still retain the Isolo Campus as the School of Part Time Studies, in view of its proximity to the major clientele for the programme, who are largely situated in the Lagos metropolis.

The 2004/2005 Academic Session saw the establishment of the School of Part Time Studies (Day) at the Surulere Campus which hitherto was the School of Environmental Studies of the Polytechnic. The Ikorodu Permanent Campus situated along the Sagamu Road has an expanse of over 400 hectares of land, a large percentage of which is yet to be developed. A beautiful, serene and conducive environment for teaching and learning with no doubt. The overall quality of the Polytechnic has rated the institution as the best State owned Polytechnic in Nigeria, and the Polytechnic of excellence, from the various assessment processes it had undergone.

Its record as a research institution of National and International repute is acknowledged by government, international agencies, industry and other stake holders. However, far from resting on its oars, the Polytechnic is determined to consolidate its position on the National and International stage.
