General Admission Requirements for Engineering Courses in Nigeria
A typical admission requirements are as follows
5 O’level credit including Mathematics, English, Physics and Chemistry in not more that two sittings
JAMB UTME score of at least 180 in most federal universities and 150 in most private and state universities.
Note: Engineering courses are always very competitive to get admission. So make sure you score high in both jamb and post utme.
To study Engineering, you must possess a minimum of C6 and Above in English, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology in your O’level ( WAEC or NECO )
Is Further Mathematics compulsory to study Engineering?
No, it is not compulsory, but it is necessary for a student to have a background knowledge of Further Mathematics which will help him/her in the higher institution since the mathematics studied in the University is much similar to Further Maths.
What if I got D7 in English, Mathematics, Physics, chemistry or Biology, Will I still be admitted to study Engineering?
No, as said earlier, you must possess a minimum of C6 and above.
Can someone put awaiting result while filling JAMB UTME form?
Yes, a student can write JAMB while awaiting WAEC/ NECO result. This does not affect the student in any way since the O’Level result ( WAEC?/NECO) will be out before the admission process.
What is the JAMB subject requirement for Engineering
While filling the form to study any Engineering course, the 4 subject combination includes English, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. Anything outside this will automatically disqualify the student from admission.
How many years does it take to study Engineering in Nigeria Universities?
I takes typically 5 years to complete undergraduate studies in Engineering after which the student will be awarded Bachelor of Engineering ( B.Eng ) on completions. During this period, the student will undergo a one year Industrial Training as part of the 5 year undergraduate program.
