You must be a science student to study Agricultural Engineering in Nigeria Universities, and that’s can only be possible if you meet admission requirements. This page literally covers answers to questions related to O level and A-level requirement.
That is, the WAEC subject combination (requirements), JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements), s, Special consideration (waivers) and the required documents for admission into Nigeria universities. In other to help you avoid having difficulties with getting admission in Nigeria Universities, we have some post that will be of benefit to you. You can ignore.

WAEC subject combination (requirements) for Agricultural Engineering
The subjects needed to study Agricultural Engineering in WAEC must contain five (5) credit. This subject combination is also applicable to NECO AND GCE… The O level requirement, that is, the required WAEC subject combination for Agricultural Engineering must include:
- English Language
- Any from Intro. to Agric Sc., Materials & Workshop Process and Machining, Tractor Layout Power Unit Under Carriage and Auto Electricity; Transmission System; Implement and Machine; Principles of Crop Husbandry and Land Use, Materials and Workshop Processes; Construction and Maintenance of Agricultural Machines; general Metal Work; General Wood Work and Building/Engineering Drawing.
- A trade subject
JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Agricultural Engineering
You should aim for a score of 180 – 200 and above in JAMB UTME to be on a safe side (Just a piece of advice) because anything short of that may deny you of Admission/Post UTME. Of course, if you have a score below 180, you can consider College of Education or Polytechnic… Please note – JAMB is not the only option for admission. If you’re having troubles JAMB UTME maybe it’s time you pass through IJBM, JUBEB, ND, HND or Predegree!..
Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Agricultural Engineering
‘A’ level passes or equivalent in Physics and Mathematics
If for some reasons you are not satisfied or cannot meet up with this admission requirement that is the subject combination above, perhaps you should consider other Agricultural Engineering similar courses or take a 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 consider

Cut-off Mark for Agricultural Engineering course
As you can see, there are over 19 Universities offering Agricultural Engineering. This means the cut-off mark for Agricultural Engineering varies. You can check these universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here. Agricultural Engineering is a good course and you can also check the top best engineering courses. This should not influence you. Follow your heart or seek my counsel.
Agricultural Engineering is how many years course and under which faculty?
Depending on your mode of entry, Agricultural Engineering is a three to four years course in Nigeria. According to JAMB, Agricultural Engineering is under Faculty of Agriculture but may be under a different faculty in some universities.
Can a commercial or art student study Agricultural Engineering?
No! Agricultural Engineering is a pure science course and not suitable for commercial or art student. But if you have 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.
Where can I work with a Degree in Agricultural Engineering
I believe you now know the subjects required to study Agricultural Engineering. I urge you to also find out where you can work with the degree. Please take your time to read The Act of Getting a Job – so you would know what you’re up against after graduating. Career opportunities will be added soon.
The SSCE O level and A-level subject combination (requirements) had been listed above but, some Universities may accept D7 or E8 in some a compulsory subject instead of Credit. And some may accept or reject two sittings. That is combinations of WAEC, NECO, or GCE results.
