The Faculty of Technology at Obafemi Awolowo University was established in 1979. The new faculty took on most of the technology disciplines already in progess within the Science and Agriculture faculties of Ife. These units included Agricultural Engineering, Food Science and Technology, Chemical Engineering, Electronics and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The creation of the new faculty was part of the original plan of the university's founders but the necessity for rapid improvement in technology education within the country was a major factor in the final push for its creation in 1979.

The new faculty was later expanded to include the departments of Mechanical Engineering, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering and Civil Engineering. The faculty's Chemical Engineering department was the first of such in Nigeria.
