Is Agricultural Engineering a good course in Nigeria and what is the salary?

Yes, Agricultural Engineering is a good course in Nigeria with limited job roles to explore. There is no standard salary for any job in Nigeria. It depends on where you get the job. Agricultural Engineer and related professionals typically earn between ₦218,000 and ₦450,000 net per month

An Agricultural Engineering degree is not competitive and quite popular amongst students in secondary school. From our records, 19 Nigerian universities offer this degree course.

So while you are here to get information on the O level subject combination for Agricultural Engineering, we also expect you consider the total number of students currently studying Agricultural Engineering and the employment rate we will show you below so that you will know what you are up against when you choose to study this course.

We have some student guide articles that will be of benefit to you.

 

WAEC Subject Combination For Agricultural Engineering

In WAEC, NECO or GCE, you are expected to register a maximum of 9 subjects for an Agricultural Engineering degree. You can register for less than 9 subjects if you are resitting.

However, you must have at least 5 credit passes amongst the 9 subjects listed below before you can gain admission into any Nigerian university to study for an Agricultural Engineering degree.

Remember, the requirement you’re about to read is also applicable to all o level examinations. (WAEC, NECO and GCE). We have painstakingly highlighted (in red) the core subjects on which you must obtain credit before gaining admission. Any subject with blue colour means, a pass is allowed.

If you fail one of the core subjects, you should read through each university’s special requirements for this course below to see if there is a university that may accept another subject in lieu of the one you failed. The 9 WAEC/NECO/GCE subject combinations for Agricultural Engineering are:

  1. Physics
  2. Chemistry
  3. Mathematics
  4. Biology/Agriculture
  5. English Language
  6. Civic Education
  7. Geography
  8. Biology
  9. A trade subject

If you have your O level result already and the subjects you have is not the same as the admission requirement that is the required O level subject combinations to study Agricultural Engineering, don’t give up. You should consider other Agricultural Engineering similar courses or look at Polytechnic or College of Education related course subject requirements.

You can also study online with a foreign university right from your bedroom or apply for a scholarship to study abroad. Education is now a choice. And please before you make a decision on which University to choose, please read valuable guides on how to choose a course and university

For this degree, you are also required to register for 4 subjects and English is compulsory. More so, your JAMB score in addition to your POST UTME score will determine the cumulative score that the university will use to decide your candidacy for admission.

You should score 200 or above in JAMB to stand a better chance of gaining admission to study Agricultural Engineering. You can still gain admission if you score between 180-190 upward but you do not stand a chance with those who had scored higher. Try out JAMB Admission Simulator.

The 4 JAMB subject combination for Agricultural Engineering is:

  1. English Language
  2. Mathematics

Cut-off Mark for Agricultural Engineering course

As you can see, more than one University offers Agricultural Engineering. This means the cut-off mark for Agricultural Engineering will vary. However, from aggregate, the cut off mark is 200. You can still gain admission if you score between 180-190 upward but you do not stand a chance with those who had scored higher.

Agricultural Engineering is how many years course and under which faculty?

Can a commercial or art student study Agricultural Engineering?

No! Agricultural Engineering is a pure science course and not suitable for commercial or art students. But if you have the required subject combination in your O level result, you can go for it if that is the course you desire to study. If you’re still in secondary school, you may find it difficult to change subjects during WAEC registration because your schools may go against it. The alternative way to write the required subjects combination for Agricultural Engineering is through GCE
