The Department of Electrical and Electronics Technology Education was carved out of the then Department of Design and Technology in 2013 and designated as Department of Automotive and Electrical Technology with the mandate of preparing graduates to meet the national demand for competent Automotive and Electrical/Electronic teachers, who have the academic and professional skills to effectively teach their relevant subject areas in Teacher Training Colleges, Senior High Technical and Junior High Schools. It is located in the Faculty of Technical Education.

The department became what is now known today as the Department of Electrical and Electronics Technology Education in 2017, after the Automotive section of the department was detached and added to the Mechanical Technology Education Department.

The vision of the Department is to become an outstanding centre to provide higher education in Electrical and Electronics, train and provide teachers with the relevant competencies for teaching and training institutions, as well as foster links between the departments, industry, and the community to ensure the holistic skills and entrepreneurial development of graduates.

The Department is one of the outstanding centres for the training of competent Electrical and Electronics teachers in the West African sub-region.

The administrative office of the Department of Electrical and Electronics Technology Education of the Faculty of Technical Education is located on the first floor of the construction building. It is managed by a very devoted and welcoming Administrator.
