The long history of Westland University began in 1984, when the Proprietor of Westland University, Dr Engr. Wole Adepoju, a structural engineering graduate from MIT Massachusetts, established the Cedarspring Technical Institute as part of his contribution to the development and growth of technological education in Nigeria. The institute was also a demonstration of Dr Engr. Adepoju’s commitment to assisting the numerous struggling youths to achieve their lofty aims of developing themselves and the country in technological advancement and innovations.

The University Council has brought together experts with cognitive experiences to drive an entrepreneurial university poised to produce self-sufficient individuals with character and proficiency in solving societal problems.
