The study was carried out to determine strategies for achieving sustainable development goals (SDGs) through career development in technical and vocational education programmes in public universities in Enugu state. Survey research design was adopted in the study. The population of the study was 97 lecturers, made up of 53 male and 44 female lecturers in the two public Universities in the state. The entire population was used because of its relatively manageable number. A 22-item validated questionnaire was used to collect data. A reliability coefficient of 0.87 was established using Cronbach Alpha. Mean and Standard deviation were used to analyse the data to answer the research questions, while t-test was used to test the null hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The results of the study showed among others, that funding of SDGs through financial institutions and promoting environmental education and awareness are strategies for achieving sustainable development goals (SDGs). Based on the findings, it was recommended, among others, that Government should provide soft loans to less privileged persons to promote small and medium skills enterprises (SMEs) and creation of new employment opportunities for young school leavers and rural dwellers.
