A Brief  History of the Department

The department was established in 1988, offering four (4), technical courses namely, Electrical/Electronics, Metalwork, Technical Drawing and Woodwork. The department graduated its first set in 1991 with five (5) students. Later, two more courses, Automobile mechanics and Building Technology were introduced. Consequently, the state government built and equipped modern workshops for the department. The workshops were commissioned in September, 1996 by the then commissioner of Education Dr. Kulu Haruna Abubakar. The department witnessed different accreditation panels both from National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) and Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
