Faculty of Forestry
Adeola holds a Bachelor’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning from the Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA), Ondo State, Nigeria. It is here he came in contact first-hand with problems of inadequate qualitative and quantitative housing and standard of living data in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. He also came to realize that achieving a better society, where equal opportunities are made available for everyone, regardless of their socio-cultural or ethnic background, is achievable through dialogue and quality engagements amongst intelligent minds. Adeola’s desire to be part of the solution is what motivates him to pursue the Master of Geomatics for Environmental Management at the University of British Columbia. Whilst at UBC, he hopes to acquire advanced knowledge in a specialized field of Geomatics for Environmental Management, especially under the themes of resilience and socioecological perspectives. Upon completing the MGEM program, he intends to become a sustainability consultant who specializes in using geospatial data in proffering solutions to waste and waste water management issues.
Above all, Adeola is extremely excited to nurture his passion and talent for debate by getting involved in the UBC Debate Society. He is eager to learn with and from the diverse UBC students, faculty and other Mastercard Scholars.
