Covenant University (NIGERIA)
The 21st Century has ushered in awareness to female education on Science and Technology Courses in Nigeria. The rate of enrollment in higher institutions especially the private institutions in Nigeria are quite astonishing. This has led to the enquiry on the comparative assessment of the performances of both females and males in Science and Technology Courses. Covenant University Students of College of Science and Technology will be the focus of study. in order to elicit information on the interest and performance of the females and males in Science and technology courses. In addition, Centre for Information and Systems will also be consulted for relevant information related to this study. The research work is adopting both the primary and the secondary method, the primary method will involve: the use of questionnaires and interviews. The secondary method will include the past performance of the student in terms of academic records and achievements of female students in the science and technology. The method of data will entail a descriptive and empirical analysis of the data gathered from the respondents. The empirical aspect will involve independent sample analysis and regression to determine the nature of the relationship among the variables. The descriptive utilizes the frequency and percentage distribution to analysis the responses from the targeted audience. The questions consists of two major parts; the first part seeks to ascertain vital information that patterns to the socio-demographic characteristic of the respondents and the second part focuses the students performance in their courses as well as their cumulative grade points. The adoption of these methods in our analysis is to ascertain whether choice of courses in tertiary institutions were the keen interest of the male and female child or have been influenced by parent or guidance decision to study, also will be able to arrive at the importance of Science and Technology to the female world, since the world is now a global village.
