All the programmes run by PCE are education-based, which are vital to the educational development of the Nation. In addition, there is emphasis on morals and good character formation.
In keeping with the foregoing, PCE admits only the best of the available qualified candidates, based on its own criteria. To this end, the College conducts its own admission examination, in addition to JAMB examination, for prospective students. Nonetheless, admission is open to all, irrespective of gender, tribe, race or religion. Special provision is made for handicapped students.
