The interdisciplinary Institute of Advanced Military Studies (IAMS) at the Kwara State University (KWASU) Malete, was established in January 2018. It is domiciled on the fourth floor of the college of Engineering and Technology Building at KWASU main campus, Malete, Kwara State.
The Institute is mandated to award Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in Advanced Military Studies. The doctoral program is to groom students through immersion in the advanced history and multi disciplinary theories of war as a fundamental human challenge. The program would also interrogate the immense potential transformational consequences of war related inventions and technological innovations for society and state as well as their implications for systemic stability.
