This research evaluated the NCCE computer science education minimum standard objectives which principally borders on the students learning outcome. The study: (i). evaluated the students learning outcome as captured in the five minimum standard objectives of computer science studies of the NCE programme (ii) examine the extent to which laboratory facilities and equipment are adequately provided for the implementation of Computer Science Education in Colleges of Education in Nigeria (iii) determine the adequacy of the provision of manpower for the implementation of Computer Science Education in College of Education in Nigeria,(iv) ascertain the impact of SIWES exercise on the general student learning outcome as it relates to the minimum standard objectives of computer science education, (v) find out the mode of teaching adopted for the implementation of Computer Science Education in Colleges of Education in Nigeria. The questions and hypotheses for the research were drown from the objectives above. The study used descriptive survey design. The population for this study was drown from six Colleges of Education, each from the six geo-political zones of the country. The questionnaire was designed based on four Point-Likert modified rating scale and the instruments used to analyse the data was Frequency counts and Independent T-Test statistical tool. Frequency count for the first research question showed low percentage of students qualified for further studies base on the learning outcome for three consecutive sessions. Hypothesis 2 showed a significant difference between the response of students and teachers regarding the adequacy of laboratory equipment, the remaining hypothesis were retained. The findings shows a very small percentage of students qualify for further studies in the universities base on the learning outcomes. Finding also shows that there is inadequate provision of facilities and equipment for achieving the Computer Science Minimum Standard Objective (CSMSO), However as seen, there was adequate manpower and there was appropriate use of teaching methodologies, except for the few hours allocated for practical. The research also shows that the SIWES Exercise in Relation to the NCE Learning Outcome is adequate for achieving the NCE Computer Science Minimum Standard Objectives (CSMSO) in Nigeria. At the end, the research recommended the following among others; the Federal government and the stakeholders of education in collaboration with other agencies and non-governmental organization should come to the aid of computer education by procuring adequate facilities and equipment for colleges of Education in Nigeria, States government should consider the possibilities of establishing the educational trust fund similar to that of TETFUND at States level to support computer education in their colleges of education. This will complement the Federal government effort towards the equipping of our computer laboratories across the Colleges of Education in the Nation.
