In 1982, Government approved the setting up of the Division of Technical Education to include the Department of Business Education, Home Economics and Engineering. In 1988, considering the (NBTE) Curriculum, the Engineering Department was further divided into 5 units namely- Metalwork, Building, Automobile, Electrical/Electronics and Woodwork. Recently, in an attempt to abide by the NCCE requirements, the Department of Mechanical and Metalwork was split into two and renamed: Automobile  and Metal-Work Technology Departments respectively. Hence, students can now specialize either in Metalwork or Automobile Technology starting from the 1998 academic session.

Woodwork Technology Education

The division of technical education was established in 1983 comprising Business Education, Home Economics and Engineering Departments.  The directive of National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) in its Curriculum brought about the splitting- up of the single Engineering Department into five Units namely: Automobile, Woodwork, Metal works, Electrical/Electronics and Building.  Later in 1996, the NCCE Curriculum further directed that each of the five units should be full-fledged Department, hence the creation of the Woodwork Department.
