The aim of this study is to analyse the underlying constraints affecting the choice of Building as a major course. The objectives of the paper arc to assess the a\varcncss of students on Building as a course in the institution, identify the percentage of students \Villing to study Building as compared to other related courses, identify constraints of students who chose Building. Secondary and primary data were obtained. Data was obtained by the administration or qucstionnnirc. and intcndC\VS or students studying building technology in C-Ovenant University. A sample si:~.e of 150 students comprising of students from the 5 levels of the progrmmne partook of the survey. Purposeful sampling technique was used and the data obtained was analyzed using a 5-point Likert scale .. The factors affecting the choice of building in varying degrees include Poor awareness of the course, Inappropriate advice, Method of teaching, Demands of the course, Gender differences, Tuition fees, Basic Teclmological skills, Leaming Enviromnent, Method of teaching, Prospects for students in studying the course. Ho\vevcr, tna_jority of the students' constraint was lack of::nvareness about the course; therefore it is reconnnended that proper cnvareness of Building Technolot,':Y as a profession should be done via workshops and seminars in secondary schools so as to broaden the view of students about the course even before entering into the higher institution .. Building technology skills acquisition is declining in many institutions in the country, therefore it requires serious attention at national level. The National Institute of building (NIOB)_ Cmmcil of registered builders of Nigeria (CORBON) that have been tasked with a detailed assessment or the construction I building skills shortage should address these inadequacies
