I know that some candidates are interested in knowing the best course in Polytechnic to study for them to make an informed decision.
Don’t fret; I will answer your question based on my experience in the job market and as someone who has an idea of the happenings in the Polytechnic.
Firstly, you must have an understanding that a Polytechnic is an institution that offers technical subjects, applied sciences, and a variety of industrial arts.
That said, in Nigeria, some courses have an edge when one is seeking for suitable employment as a graduate i.e., some graduates have a high chance of gaining employment.
The reason the statement above is correct lies in its purpose. There is a reason for founding Polytechnics in Nigeria and other countries of the world by the government.
For example, NLNG has been known for advertising for the position of a technical trainee, and it is meant only for the polytechnic graduates who studied some particular courses.
NLNG is one of the few places in Nigeria where you can have a better career and an attractive remuneration.
In short, oil and gas firm and construction firm always welcome polytechnic graduates who studied an excellent course with a grade of at least upper credit.
Note: Polytechnics offer two certificates, and they are Ordinary National Diploma (OND) and Higher National Diploma (HND).
