You must be a science student to study Computer 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.
In other words, the WAEC subject combination (requirements), JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements), 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 student guide articles that will be of benefit to you. You can ignore.

WAEC subject combination (requirements) for Computer Engineering
The subjects needed to study Computer 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 Computer Engineering must include:
- Further Mathematics
- English Language
- Civic Education
- Geography/Any Nigerian Language
- A trade subject
is ICT compulsory for computer science engineering?
The answer is No.
JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Computer Engineering
Knowing JAMB subjects for Computer Engineering is not enough. You should aim for a score of 180 – 200 and above in JAMB UTME to be on the 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 Computer Engineering
Three ‘A’ level passes in Pure Mathematics or Pure and Applied Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics
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 Computer 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 Computer Engineering course
As you can see, there are 23 Universities offering Computer Engineering. This means the cut-off mark for Computer Engineering varies. You can check these universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here. Computer 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.
Computer Engineering is how many years course and under which faculty?
Depending on your mode of entry, Computer Engineering is a three to four years course in Nigeria. According to JAMB, Computer Engineering is under Faculty of Agriculture but may be under a different faculty in some universities.
Can a commercial or art student study Computer Engineering ?
No! Computer 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 Computer Engineering is through GCE.
Where can I work with a Degree in Computer Engineering
I believe you now know the subjects required to study Computer 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.
Special Consideration (waiver)
The SSCE O level and A-level subject needed to study Computer Engineering have been listed above. 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. You will know more when you take a look at the special consideration (waiver) for this course.
