However the participants were a total of 152 engineering students. The research instrument was a pre-tested self-administered questionnaire. The questionnaire was structured using close-ended Likert 5-point attitude scale format for it’s relatively easy to design, high degree of reliability and validity in using Likert technique. The data obtained was analysed using frequency, percentage, mean score and standard deviation techniques on Standard Package for Social Scientists (SPSS) 16.0, software.
