WAEC subject combination (requirements) for Mechanical / Production Engineering
The subjects needed to study Mechanical / Production 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 Mechanical / Production Engineering must include
- English Language
- Any other Science subject
- A trade subject
Manufacturing or Production Engineering is the subset / specialization of a Mechanical Engineering. Mechanical Engineering with the focus only on Machine Tools, Materials Science, Tribology, and Quality Control is known as Manufacturing Engineering. Professional manufacturing engineers are responsible for all aspect of the design, development, implementation, operation and management of manufacturing system.
Manufacturing is the most important element in any engineering process and Manufacturing Engineers are key personnel in many organization. The manufactured products range from aero planes, turbines, engines and pumps – to integrated circuits and robotic equipment.
JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Mechanical / Production Engineering
Knowing JAMB subjects for Mechanical / Production 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, HND or Predegree!..
JAMB UTME subject combinations (subjects to write in jamb) to study Mechanical / Production Engineering are:
Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Mechanical / Production Engineering
‘A’ level passes in any two of 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 Mechanical / Production 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
This is the list of Universities offering Mechanical / Production Engineering in Nigeria
- Bauchi State University, Gadau
- Enugu State University of Science and Technology, Enugu (ESUT)
Cut-off Mark for Mechanical / Production Engineering course
The cut-off mark for Mechanical / Production Engineering varies. You can check these universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here. Mechanical / Production 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 / Production Engineering is how many years course and under which faculty?
Depending on your mode of entry, Mechanical / Production Engineering is a three to four years course in Nigeria. According to JAMB, Mechanical / Production Engineering is under Faculty of Agriculture but may be under a different faculty in some universities.
Can a commercial or art student study Mechanical / Production Engineering?
No! Mechanical / Production 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 / Production Engineering is through GCE.
Where can I work with a Degree in Mechanical / Production Engineering in Nigeria
I believe you now know the subjects required to study Mechanical / Production Engineering. Top Sectors for Mechanical / Production Engineering graduates to work are
1. Research Labs
2. Manufacturing sector
3. Communication sector
13. Information Technology
The SSCE O level and A-level subject needed to study Mechanical / Production 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.
(i) Enugu State University of Science and Technology, Enugu (ESUT) accepts 1st Degree and HND (upper credit) in relevant fields into 300 level.
(i) Federal University, Oye-Ekiti, Ekiti State – Same as in Mechanical Engineering.
