It is basically divided into three sections which are, Health Technology Division, Specialized Institution Division and also the Agricultural Technology Division but in this content, I will focus on the specialized institution.
There is also a various specialized institution in Nigeria and it divided into three segments which are Science/Agricultural Programmes Section, Management Science Programmes Section and also Engineering\Environmental Programmes Section.
