The School of Agricultural Technology was created in 2006, with 3 Departments viz; Departments of Animal Health and Production Headed by Dr. Malachi A. Tizhe, Agricultural Technology Headed by Mrs Helen Olwoye and Agricultural and Bio-Environmental Engineering Headed by Dr. Allen Dusa in the First instance, and later expanded to six Departments with Horticulture, Forestry and Fisheries added as full fledge Departments in 2017 with Dr. Mustapha, Dr John I. Tekwa  and Dr. Kubkomawa as pioneer HODs in that order. All the Departments with exception of the Fisheries currently run National Diploma (ND) programmes.  The School was carved out from the School of Science and Technology. Before its creation, the 3 Departments were merge as a single Departments with which the Institution took off in Yola in 1979 on establishment. The Department then had full accreditation and admitted 35 students for ND (National Diploma) in 1981, but later lost the accreditation status on relocation to Mubi in 1985.

In 2006, the 3 Departments successfully passed through NBTE resource inspection and were granted interim Accreditation in 2007. In the year 2008/2009, the 3 got full accreditation with certificates of accreditation issued by NBTE. In the year 2013, the Department of agric Technology had interim accreditation and mounted 2 HND programmes, namely: HND Crop Production Technology and HND Agric Extension and Management. Currently, plans are on ground to mount HND in farm in Farm Power and Machinery, HND Animal Production Technology, and HND Animal Health in the Departments of Agric and Bio-Environmental Engineering Technology and Animal Health and Production Technology respectively.

The School of Agric Technology has standard and well developed infrastructure both for teaching and research. These include fully stocked Animal Farm, Veterinary clinic, Mechanized crop farm, Orchard, Vegetable Garden, Arable Crop Farm, Commercial Farm, and Plantations for Gum Arabic, Moringa, Date palm, Sugar cane and paddy rice farm.  Others are Wood Grave Land, Herbarium, Green House and well established Fish Farm. In its quest for research, the School has in place well equipped indoor and outdoor Laboratories, well equipped Agric and Bio-Environmental Engineering Tech Workshop and Feed Mill, and highly skilled professionals.

The future of the School remains bright as the current Federal Government focus is on diversification of non-oil sector with Agriculture being at the fore front. Most of the middle manpower required for this new national economic outlook will depend on the products from this School and other similar program.
