Discrimination between HND and first degree can be/is still frustrating especially in the area of limitations for HND Holders in most Multi National Companies. But i will like to point out that it is utterly wrong to focus only on the positive sides of obtaining B.eng and not considering pursuing HND before this young man takes a decision. Am presently working with a Multi National company in Nigeria, my Manager does not posses a university degree but takes home over 6M p/annum, most of my university friends back then can not boast of same salary package that i presently earn over 2M p/annum. Most employers this days are gradualling shifting from what qualifications do you have in interviews rather what can you offer the organization and i guess this is where you have to be careful in making a decision and ask yourself what exactly you want to achieve. i became interested in this topic because i saw that you are computer engineering student and i will like to share my this with you. I graduated with HND in Physics/Electronics in 2006, while waiting for service year and the thought of discrimination for HND graduates i decided to pursue a career in IT where i sat and passed CCNA in 2007, during my suppose service year I linked up with a former Senior back then in school that runs an IT company then,worked there for 14months where i was paid peanuts (15k) but all that i have learned there is what i am today. Where i presently work is the only place out of the 4th company that i have worked for that was really really interested in seeing my certificate before offering me a job as it is a Multi- National company others preferred to ask me what i could offer them, hence i will like to submit that though while running my HND programme i wasn't happy but am glad i took that decision especially venturing into IT after leaving school and i don't have any regret whatsoever. I wish you the very best in your decision and Life

Guy, if your ears are rightly positioned, and they are not dysfunctional, correct people have advised you to go for your OAU stuff 'jeje', don't mess it up o. I have a financial constraints during my time too, and went for HND at the same Yabatech, finished well in 2004,
Now, I have just finished my B.Sc which I started afresh due to employment relegation of the HND.
Besides, you are still young to start counting unnecessary losses due to strike. Make the sacrifice once, and focus on building your life right away. A word is enough for the wise ooo, if you are actually wise. Good luck to you but not Jona,

As a graduate of Computer Engineering from OAU (and an OND holder), I strongly advise you take up the Ife admission. No need to waste words on why.

Kboye understands what I have said here before. It is not as simple as many undergraduates are saying. Do you think Google, Yahoo and Facebook will not employ a Secondary School leaver who can give them what they want ahead of a PhD. holder ? I know what it means for people to employ you without viewing your credentials.

Come on, men. You know it is Naija we are talking about here?
People that will hire him will not have the exposure and the lateral thinking to think like that. In Naija, the person that packs certificate from left, right and centre it the Shampion.

^ In 4-5 years time he could have an HND+BSC in addition to work against just an OAU degree if he is good.
|Re: Oau Second Yr Comp Engr Vs Yabatech Hnd1 Comp Engr: Plz Help by Sagamite(m): 6:17pm On Jan 27, 2012|
If you have a BSc, the HND is redundant, so why bother?

Knowledge, work experience, parents' blessings. The zeal and ability to solve problems in a dynamic way etc.
I think the guys problem is that his parents want him to start earning income in 2 year's time against them having to finance him for the next 4-5 years. We don"t know their financial state and the number of other siblings they have to cater for.

^^^ You have a point there.

Bros, dis na fat lie. . . . when you get a Master's or MBA, nobody gives a hoot about the previous degree again!
So, in other words our OP here can still finish HND, do PGD if necessary and then onto Master's - if you sit through two years of OND in a poly, especially in practical courses like the pure sciences and engineering, I am sure you will understand why I consider year-2 in a Uni as a backward step, discrimination or not!

Your friend is happy because he's not yet in the labour market. I have seen extremely brilliant people living a life of misery and discrimination just because they have HND. Its an unfortunate situation but that's how Nigeria operates today. The decision you make today determines your progression for your entire working life except you have your own company.
