This work surveys use of e‐mail by Technical Education students in Nigerian universities. Questionnaires were used to collect data from technical education students in three Nigerian universities: University of Benin, Nnamdi Azikiwe University and Delta State University. Data were analysed and presented by gender using frequency counts and percentages. Findings reveal that a majority of the respondents used e‐mail to communicate with parents/relatives and friends, followed by with course mates, a majority of them have e‐mail address with yahoo, use/access e‐mail in cyber cafés, send and receive less than 10 mails per week, prefer e‐mail to postal system and are deterred by slow computer response from use of e‐mail; conclusion was drawn in the light of findings.
