You must be a science student to study Mechanical 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 always ignore!




WAEC subject combination (requirements) for Mechanical Engineering

The subjects needed to study Mechanical 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 Mechanical Engineering must include

  1. Physics
  2. Chemistry
  3. Mathematics
  4. English Language
  5. Any other Science subject
  6. A trade subject

 

Before you consider the JAMB UTME subject combination (subjects to write in jamb) to study this course, it is good you know what this course is all about. Mechanical engineering is a discipline of engineering that applies the principles of physics and materials science for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the production and usage of heat and mechanical power for the design, production, and operation of machines and tools. It is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines.

The engineering field requires an understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, and structural analysis. Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided engineering and product lifecycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices and more.

Mechanical Engineering science emerged in the 19th century as a result of developments in the field of physics. The field has continually evolved to incorporate advancements in technology. Mechanical engineers today are pursuing developments in fields such as composites, mechatronics and nano technology. Mechanical Engineering overlaps with aerospace engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, petroleum engineering and chemical engineering to varying amounts.

Like other career paths, entry into this particular branch of engineering also requires certain basic traits. First and foremost, you must have a penchant for mechanical components and machinery and how these machines work. You must be good at physics, chemistry and mathematics. You must also have skills such as an analytical bent of mind, logical reasoning and problem solving.

 

JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Mechanical Engineering

Knowing JAMB subjects for Mechanical Engineering 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 or Predegree.

JAMB UTME subject combinations (subjects to write in jamb) to study Mechanical Engineering are:

  1. Chemistry
  2. Mathematics
  3. Physics

 




Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Mechanical Engineering

(i) Two ‘A’ level passes from Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics.
(ii) ND upper credit, NCE technical and HND in Mech. Engineering.

 

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 Mechanical 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

  • The Fees
  • The Distance
  • The Environment
  • The Degree Certificate
  • Vulnerability to Strike
  • Acceptable O Level and A-level Result
  • Academic Calendar

Cut-off Mark for Mechanical Engineering course

The cut-off mark for Mechanical Engineering varies. You can check these universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here. Mechanical 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.

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

Depending on your mode of entry, Mechanical Engineering is a three to four years course in Nigeria. According to JAMB, Mechanical Engineering is under Faculty of Agriculture but may be under a different faculty in some universities.

 

Can a commercial or art student study Mechanical Engineering?

No! Mechanical 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 Mechanical Engineering is through GCE

 

Where can I work with a Degree in Mechanical Engineering 
I believe you now know the subjects required to study Mechanical 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. With a degree in mechanical engineering, one can find job in various government and private sector companies. Mechanical Engineer can opt for various job openings such as: Maintenance Engineer, safety Engineer, Quality Assurance, Design Engineer, Production Supervisor/Engineer etc
