In this paper, we applied Geometric programming in the design of a standard laboratory for students’ practical work in the Federal University of Technology Owerri. The laboratory has a capacity of 1,357 seats thereby containing 1357 students with the following dimensions: design length is 644.3m; design width is 337.8m and design height is 217.7m. The laboratory would cost the university authority a minimum of 915,875.2 naira to construct.
