Petroleum Engineering is a branch of Engineering concerned with the activities related to the production and exploration Hydrocarbons better known as crude oil or natural gas. It is one of the most demanding Engineering course in the field of Engineering till date.
The admission requirement for studying Petroleum Engineering in Nigeria is almost the same in all schools except for the JAMB cut off marks. Petroleum Engineering commands the highest JAMB cut off mark in faculty of Engineering in all universities in Nigeria. To gain admission into any institution to study Petroleum Engineering, a high JAMB score of at least 265 and above, a very good post UTME score and most importantly a very good O’level result is required and of course the correct subject combination for Petroleum Engineering is a prerequisite.
Talking about the admission requirements for studying Petroleum 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 Petroleum 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 Petroleum 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 Petroleum Engineering makes the admission process much easier for candidates seeking admission to study Petroleum 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 Petroleum 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 subject combination for Petroleum Engineering but other courses as approved by JAMB.
Admission Requirements For Studying Petroleum Engineering In Nigerian Universities
In this post 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 Petroleum Engineering in our universities today.
Petroleum Engineering covers a wide range and scope as it involves both theory and practical classes. Upon graduation, a Petroleum Engineer career opportunity is slightly narrow in the sense that they can only work in the field of Oil and gas related multinational companies though they the highest paid professions in the world.
So if you are interested in studying Petroleum 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) WAEC or NECO Subjects for studying Petroleum Engineering in any Nigerian University.
b) Admission Requirements for studying Petroleum Engineering
c) Whether you can combine WAEC and NECO results to Petroleum Engineering (Yes you can though this also depends on the institution)
d) Minimum required cut off mark for Petroleum Engineering in Nigeria
e) List of Universities In Nigeria that offers Petroleum Engineering
f) List of Private universities offering Petroleum Engineering
g) State and Federal Universities that offers Petroleum Engineering
O’Level Requirements For Petroleum 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
