The study investigated the human capital development needs of Nigeria students for entrepreneurship education through career and technical education. Four research questions and four null hypotheses guided the study. Population for the study was 473,455. Proportionate random sampling technique was used to select a sample of 8477 subjects. A structured questionnaire of 47 items was developed to collect data. Three experts validated the instrument and Cronbach alpha method was used to determine the reliability co-efficient which yielded 0.83. Data collected was analyzed using Mean to answer research questions and t-test statistic to test the null. The findings of the study revealed that there was no significant difference (p>0.05) between the respondents on the entrepreneurial skills in planning, organising, and co-ordinating and implementing an enterprise as well as resources and methods of teaching the skills. Based on the findings, it was recommended among others that the identified skills be integrated into the curriculum of vocational and technical education in Nigerian Universities.
