Computer Engineering is a branch of Engineering that integrates several fields of synergies computer science and electronic engineering required to build computer hardware and softwares. It is one of the most read Engineering courses in the field of Engineering today.
The admission requirement for studying Computer Engineering in Nigeria is almost the same in all schools except for the JAMB cut off marks. Computer Engineering requires a high JAMB cut off mark, good post UTME score and most importantly a very good O’level result.
Talking about the admission requirements for studying Computer Engineering, four (4) requirements are involved, namely:
- Required O’Level subjects
- O’Level and UTME subjects combination
- JAMB or UTME Score of the candidate
- Post UTME Score
Any candidate that can conveniently meet the above admission requirements for Computer 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 Computer 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 correct and approved O’Level subject requirements plus JAMB subject combination for Computer Engineering makes the admission process much easier for candidates seeking admission to study Computer 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 Computer 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 Computer Engineering but other courses as approved by JAMB.
Admission Requirements For Studying Computer 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 Computer Engineering in our universities today.
Computer Engineering covers a wide range and scope as it involves both theory and practical classes. Upon graduation, a Computer Engineer can work in any Engineering, IT or even other Multinational white collar companies? They are relevant in any organization in the world at large.
So if you are interested in this studying Computer 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 Computer Engineering in any Nigerian University.
b) Admission Requirements for studying Computer Engineering
c) Whether you can combine WAEC and NECO results to Computer Engineering (Yes you can though this also depends on the institution)
d) Minimum required cut off mark for Computer Engineering in Nigeria
e) List of Universities In Nigeria that offers Computer Engineering
f) List of Private universities offering Computer Engineering
g) State and Federal Universities Offering Computer Engineering
O’Level Requirements For Computer Engineering
Candidates who wish to study Computer Engineering must have the following:
- You are required to have a minimum of five (5) credit passes which includes Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, English Language and any other Science subject.
UTME Subject Combination For Computer 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.
