Abstract
This study determined the effects of simulations using MATLAB on achievement and gender of electronic technology education students in tertiary institutions in Nigeria. Two Research questions and hypotheses guided the study. A pre-test, post-test, non-equivalent control group, quasi-experimental research design was adopted. A total of 254 students were involved in the study. Electronic Technology Education Achievement Test (ETEAT) was used for data collection. The instrument was face validation by five experts. The ETEAT was trial-tested to determine its psychometric indices and reliability coefficient. The reliability coefficient of the ETEAT obtained was 0.78 using Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient. Mean was used to answer the research questions; while ANCOVA was employed to test the hypotheses. The study revealed that MATLAB is more effective than the traditional teaching method on studentsí achievement in Electronic Technology in favour of male students. There was a significant difference between the mean achievement scores of students taught Electronic Technology using MATLAB and those taught with traditional method. Consequently, the researcher recommended that workshops, seminars and conferences should be organized by Ministry of Education and administrators of universities to enlighten electronic Technology Lecturers and improve their knowledge and skills on the use of MATLAB for improving studentsí achievement in Electronic Technology Education.

Key words: Electronic technology, Simulation, MATLAB, Academic Achievement, Education
