The National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) is Nigeria's supervisory agency and coordinating body for all aspects of technical education taught outside the universities in Nigeria. It is therefore responsible for curriculum development in the polytechnics and technical colleges. The Higher National Diploma (HND) in Science Laboratory Technology (Physics-with- Electronics) is one of the academic programmes developed by the Board, and offered by many polytechnics throughout the country. This programme is designed to produce laboratory technologists capable of applying all common physics equipment and instruments in analytic, teaching and research work, and are also able to maintain them. In this paper, the main features of the programme are discussed with a view to sharing experience with physics teachers from different parts of the world on more effective curriculum delivery using modern techniques.
