You must be a science student to study Mechatronics 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), 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 Mechatronics Engineering
The subjects needed to study Mechatronics 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 Mechatronics Engineering must include
- English Language
- Any other Science subject
- 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. This program, developed in direct response to industrial demand for engineers with multi-disciplinary skills, is a combination of mechanical, electronics, control, computer and systems design engineering streams.
The program allows engineers to design, construct and run factory production lines and automated processes, where they use their skills in computers, micro-controllers, programmable logic controllers, programming, industrial sensors, hydraulic, pneumatic and electric drives, design of mechanical structures and mechanisms and knowledge of manufacturing processes.
There is immense scope for this course of mechatronics engineering in the present scenario. This is a stream of engineering which has high scope in various industrial applications. The main advantage after the completion of this course is that one can not only work in the field of mechatronics, but has equal opportunities in the other areas such as electrical, systems, computer engineering etc. This is a field which can be applied in many of the areas –
- Transportation and Vehicle Systems
- Telecommunication and Data Communication Networks
- Power Devices
- Medical Mechatronics systems
- Heavy Engineering and Manufacturing Systems
- Energy Devices
- Consumer Products
- Computer Techniques in Medical, Bioimaging and Technology Systems
- Computer-Aided Design
- Computer Aided and Integrated Manufacturing Devices and Systems
- Biomedical Systems
JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Mechatronics Engineering
Knowing JAMB subjects for Mechatronics 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 Mechatronics Engineering are:
Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Mechatronics 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 Mechatronics 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
These are the list of Universities offering Mechatronics Engineering in Nigeria
- Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti – Ekiti State
- Bayero University, Kano
- Bells University of Technology, Otta
- Federal University, Oye-Ekiti, Ekiti State
- Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB)
- Federal University of Technology, Minna
Cut-off Mark for Mechatronics Engineering course
The cut-off mark for Mechatronics Engineering varies. You can check these universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here. Mechatronics 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.
Mechatronics Engineering is how many years course and under which faculty?
Depending on your mode of entry, Mechatronics Engineering is a three to four years course in Nigeria. According to JAMB, Mechatronics Engineering is under Faculty of Agriculture but may be under a different faculty in some universities.
Can a commercial or art student study Mechatronics Engineering?
No! Mechatronics 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 Mechatronics Engineering is through GCE.
Where can I work with a Degree in Mechatronics Engineering
I believe you now know the subjects required to study Mechatronics Engineering. There is a strong demand for Mechatronics engineers in the field of designing, implementing and operating internet control of machines, autonomous robots and engine management systems. When we talk about the job opportunities in this field, the candidates can opt for jobs both in the government as well as the private sector. There are immense job opportunities in this field such as –
- Manufacturing Industry
- Industrial automation
- Bio medical system
- Oil and Gas industry
- Computer industry
The SSCE O level and A-level subject needed to study Mechatronics 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 if available. Please take note that when you see Check, it simply means the special consideration for this course had been merge with a related course to save space.
