Abstract


This paper examined utilization of electricity in electrical and electronics workshop as perceived by undergraduate students in Nigeria. Electrical and electronics are practical and activity oriented subjects that require electricity to function effectively in the workshop and laboratories. It is because of the practical oriented activities that the subject requires electricity supply in electric lamps, motors, wiring and connection of equipment, tools, soldering, indicating instrument and measurement of quantities and resistors and capacitor testing. The other areas in the workshop that require electricity supply are electronic components and devices, rectification circuits, network, radio, television, modulation and maintenance of equipment, gadgets, and the operation of safety equipment in the workshop. Despite the importance of electricity supply for the operation of these workshop equipment in Nigeria, it appears that electricity supply remain a mirage in our school workshop due epileptic power supply in Nigeria. Based on the discussion and implications, the following recommendations were preferred as a way forward: the power sector in Nigeria should be given urgent attention to increase and improve electricity supply by the government to improve on the use of equipment and electrical/electronic tools in Nigeria among others.
