All over the world, education has been adopted as an instrument for the total emancipation of both the individual and the society. There is no doubt that the type of education needed for the fulfillment of this aspiration is vocational/technical education. But there must be a planned investment in human resource development in the specific area of vocational/technical education for its job creating capability. Differential performances of sexes in technology education have now become an issue of interest. This study looks at the contributions of an important institution, the producer of middle-level manpower, for the socio-economic development of the country. In doing this, Kaduna Polytechnic is specifically discussed to assess the overall gender mainstreaming of the polytechnic system. It is against the back drop of the foregoing that this study was conceived. It is very rare to find girls majoring in Science, Engineering and Technology based programmes; the general out-look is that girls are stereotyped in majoring in Arts and/or Humanities.
