You must be a science student to study Building Technology 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 requirements.
In other words, the WAEC subject combination (requirements), JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements), Special consideration (waivers) and the required documents for admission into Nigerian universities. In other to help you avoid having difficulties with getting admission in Nigeria Universities, we have some student guide articles that will be of benefit to you. You can ignore it.

WAEC subject combination (requirements) for Building Technology
The subjects needed to study Building Technology – Under Engineering in WAEC must contain five (5) credit. This subject combination is also applicable to NECO AND GCE… The required WAEC subject combination (O level requirement) for Building Technology – Under Engineering must include
- English Language
- Any one of Geography, Economics, Arts and Technical drawing.
- A trade subject
For holders of NTC, the other relevant subjects could be Intro. to Building Construction, Bricklaying, Concreting, Walls, Floors and Ceiling Finishing, Building/Engineering Drawing, Joinery, Carpentry, Gas, Steam Work and Bronze Welding, Cold / Hot Water Supply, Sanitation and Drainage.
JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Building Technology
Knowing JAMB subjects for Building Technology is not enough. 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!..
These are JAMB UTME subject combinations (subjects to write in jamb) to study Building Technology
Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Building Technology – Under Engineering
‘A’ level passes in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry
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 Building Technology 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
- The Fees
- The Distance
- The Environment
- The Degree Certificate
- Vulnerability to Strike
- Acceptable O Level and A-level Result
- Academic Calendar
This is the list of Universities offering Building Technology in Nigeria

Cut-off Mark for Building Technology course
The cut-off mark for Building Technology varies. You can check these universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here. Building Technology 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.
Building Technology is how many years course and under which faculty?
Depending on your mode of entry, Building Technology is a three to four years course in Nigeria. According to JAMB, Building Technology is under Faculty of Agriculture but may be under a different faculty in some universities.
Can a commercial or art student study Building Technology?
No! Building Technology 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 Building Technology is through GCE.
Where can I work with a Degree in Building Technology
I believe you now know the subjects required to study Building Technology – Under 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.
