According to Wikipedia, Chemical engineering is a branch of engineering that uses principles of chemistry, physics, mathematics, biology, and economics to efficiently use, produce, design, transport and transform energy and materials.
The admission requirement for studying Chemical engineering as a course in various institutions in Nigeria is almost the same except for their required JAMB cut off marks. Chemical engineering like Petroleum Engineering requires a high JAMB cut off mark of at least 260 and above, good post UTME score and most importantly a very good O’level result.
Talking about the admission requirements for studying Chemical engineering, four (4) major requirements are involved, namely:
- Correct O’Level and UTME subjects combination
- JAMB or UTME Score of the candidate
- Post UTME Score
- Lastly, a high aggregate score
Any candidate that can conveniently meet the above admission requirements for Chemical engineering to the university’s satisfaction, admission into any university be it UNN, DELSU, UNIBEN, UNIZIK, UNILAG and the likes is 100% guaranteed.
Often times we stress the need for the correct O’Level and UTME subject combination for Chemical engineering as a course in our tertiary institutions cannot be overemphasized as candidates tend to ignore the importance of this subject matter thus making it difficult for them to gain admission into the university to study this course.
Making use of the approved O’Level subject requirements and UTME subject combination for Chemical engineering makes the admission process much easier for candidates seeking admission to study Chemical engineering in their various choice of institutions.
Not many are aware that one of the major reason for the increase in purchase of change of course and institution form is because before embarking on the UTME, most candidates fail to confirm the correct WAEC or NECO subjects required to study Chemical engineering and thus making them go through the process of change of course or institution and sometimes, both.
In one of our posts, we harped succinctly on subject combination for WAEC/NECO and JAMB, it would be wise to go through it as this will give candidates better understandings on not just the subjects requirements for studying Chemical engineering but other courses as approved by JAMB.
Admission Requirements For Studying Chemical Engineering In Nigerian Universities
Today, we shall be giving candidates full details as regards the WAEC and NECO otherwise known as O’Level subjects combination and admission requirements for studying Chemical engineering in our universities today.
Chemical engineering covers a wide range and scope as it involves both theory and practical classes. Upon graduation, a Chemical engineering career opportunity is slightly narrow in the sense that they can only work in the field of Oil and gas related multinational companies, chemical Industries, production and manufacturing companies.
Candidates who are interested in studying Chemical engineering, you must meet their admission requirements which we are about to breakdown below.
Upon completing this post, you ought to be clear about the followings:
a) O’Level requirements for studying Chemical engineering in any Nigerian University.
b) Admission Requirements for studying Chemical engineering
c) Whether you can combine WAEC and NECO results to Chemical engineering (Yes you can though this also depends on the institution)
d) Minimum required cut off mark for Chemical engineering in Nigeria
e) List of Universities In Nigeria that offers Chemical engineering
f) List of Private universities offering Chemical engineering
g) State and Federal Universities that offers Chemical engineering
O’Level Requirements For Chemical Engineering
Candidates who wish to study Petroleum Engineering must have the following:
You are required to have a minimum of five (5) credit passes in the following subjects in your O’Level results
- English Language
- Any other Science subject.
UTME Subject Combination For Chemical Engineering
- English Language (compulsory)
The above requirements are acceptable by all schools, however there might be slight changes in cut off marks based on the school but the difference will be insignificant.

These information provided here are JAMB’s requirements and all candidates searching for the approved admission requirements, UTME and WAEC subjects combination for studying Chemical Engineering as a course in any University within Nigeria. All schools listed here have been warned to comply with the directives which are still in force.
Hope the above information is well understood? If you have any question as regards O’level subjects requirements for Chemical Engineering, JAMB approved subjects combination and admission requirements for candidates who registered Chemical Engineering in their UTME or Direct Entry candidate, kindly get back to us via our comment section below and we shall respond accordingly.
