Survey questionnaires were floated to the graduates and Frequency, percentage, and ranking were used to treat the data gathered. The results of this study revealed that; out of 61 traced graduates, there were 43 or 70.49% who were employed and 18 or 29.51% were not yet employed; majority were engaged in Professional/Technical/ Supervisory works with 29 or 67.44 % and; majority were contractual employees with 23 or 53.49%.
