Our Saviour Institute of Science and Technology

Our Saviour Institute of Science, Agriculture and Technology (OSISATECH) is a privately owned polytechnic in Enugu, Enugu State, Nigeria established in 1989.[1][2][3][4][5]


It was founded by the Catholic priest Rev. Fr. Prof. Emmanuel Edeh, who also founded secondary schools and the Madonna University, Okija Campus, Elele Campus, Enugu Campus, Anambra State; Caritas University, Amorji-Nike, Enugu.[6] The institution was one of the few privately owned schools to take advantage of a 1993 decree that spelled out criteria for official recognition of private universities, polytechnics and colleges of education, during a window when the government was issuing approvals.[7]

In a ranking by the National Commission for Colleges of Education of performance in the 1999/2000 academic year of 75 federal, state and privately owned colleges, the institute was at the foot of the list. In November 2012, OSISATECH College of Education received an award for Teachers Development in Nigeria. It was given by NCCE.[8] In December 2009, Emmanuel Edeh was honoured with the African Film Festival and Academy Award in London.[9]
