Background: The dressing or fashion style of tertiary students has become an important issue ofmuch concern in this contemporary era amidst technological advancement. This study examinespolytechnic students perspective on the effect science and technology has on dress sense and fashiontaste. Methods: The design was a cross-sectional non-experimental survey of 102 polytechnicstudents between the ages of 15 - 29 years with ample knowledge on dress sense. The sampleconsisted of 40 male 39.2% and 62 female 60.8% students who were enrolled by using a multistagecluster sampling technique according to departments and academic levels. Results: Thestudy found that there was an association between science and technology influence and dresssense 53.7% approval vs. 46.7% disapproval, however this was not statistically significance x2 = 0.21, p ≤ 0.005. Again the relationship between the future influence of science and technology onthe dress sense of students was examined using Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient since thetwo variables of interest were measured at continuous and categorical levels. The study identifieda very weak negative correlation between the future influence of science and technology on dresssense and how better students dress will be than now ρ = -0.2, n = 102, p < 0.05. Conclusion: Thestudy identifies that there is a very weak relationship between the influence of science and technologyon the dress sense of students; however this relationship is not statistically significant.
