Abstract
This study explored the relationship between self-efficacy and entrepreneurial intentions of technical college
electronics students in South-east Nigeria. The design of this study was correlation survey research. The sample
consists of 220 students of RTVE works made up of 187 males and 33 females. Three instruments were adapted by
the researchers for this study and these are Self-efficacy Scale (SES), Entrepreneurial Self-efficacy Scale (ESES)
and Entrepreneurial Intention Questionnaire (EIQ). The data collected were analyzed using mean to answer the
research questions while multiple regressions were used in testing the hypotheses. The results revealed a low
positive relationship between self-efficacy and entrepreneurial intentions of technical college electronics students.
There is a moderate positive relationship between entrepreneurial self-efficacy and entrepreneurial intentions of
technical college electronics students. There is no difference in the perceived level of entrepreneurial intentions of
male and female technical college electronics students. Self-efficacy significantly relates to the entrepreneurial
intentions of technical college electronics students. Entrepreneurial self-efficacy significantly relates to the
entrepreneurial intentions of technical college electronics students. Based on these findings, some educational
implications were highlighted and recommendations made.

Key words: Electronics Students; Entrepreneurial Intentions; Self-Efficacy; Technical College
