O Level & A Level Requirement – Subject Combination for Textile Science and Technology – Under Engineering; including the List of Nigeria Universities Offering the Course, WAEC, NECO, GCE, JAMB UTME, Direct Entry, IJBM, JUPEB, CAMBRIDGE, NABTEB, Course Description and Career Opportunities 

 

Note

  • JAMB officially classified this course under Faculty/School/College of Engineering/Environmental/Technology.
  • Probable Degree type – [B. Eng., B.Sc., B. Tech., B. Arc.]

Before you consider the O level requirement for this course, it is good you know what this course is all about. Textile industry is one of the oldest industries in India. The industry basically involves manufacturing of various types of fabrics both natural and synthetic, production of machinery, and planning and development of new technology. The industry has categorized three major areas of work namely research and development, manufacturing and merchandising.

Textile Engineering is the study of textile production, processing and it’s compatibility for the use of common man. It combines the principles of engineering with specific knowledge of textile equipment and processes. This field of engineering draws inputs from various other branches of engineering like chemical, instrumentation, computer, structural, electronic and mechanical engineering. Textile technology/Engineering deals with the application of scientific and engineering principles to the design and control of all aspects of fiber, textile and apparel processes, its products and machinery. These include natural and man-made materials, interaction of materials with machines, safety and health, energy conservation, and waste and pollution control. There is wide scope for research in this area as the industry demands the need to improve currently available products and develop new ones.

 

The admission requirement to study Textile Science and Technology in Nigeria Universities includes one or a combination of ‘O’ level results or A-level result if you’re going through Direct Entry. This page will literally answer questions such as WAEC subject combination, JAMB UTME subject combination, Direct Entry requirements, Special consideration (waivers), where you can work with the degree and the required documents for admission into Nigeria universities. If you’re still having difficulties with getting admission in Nigeria Universities, we have some post that may be of benefit to you.

 

WAEC subject combination (requirement) for Textile Science and Technology
The subjects needed to study Textile Science and Technology in WAEC must contain five (5) credit. This subject combination is also applicable to NECO AND GCE… The O level requirement that is the compulsory WAEC subject combination for Textile Science and Technology must include

  1. English Language
  2. Fine Art
  3. Mathematics If you don’t have credit in Mathematics, Click here fast
  4. Chemistry
  5. Spinning; Weaving; Surface Design and Printing; Bleaching, Dyeing and Finishing; Ceramics; Graphic Design; Graphic Printing; Decorative Painting, Spray Painting, Lining, Sign & Design, Wall Hanging, Colour Mixing/Matching and Glazing, Building/Engineering Drawing, General Wood Work.
  6. A trade subject

 

JAMB UTME subject combination (subjects needed) for Textile Science and Technology
You should aim for a score of 180 – 200 and above in JAMB UTME to be on a safe side (Just an 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 combination (subject to write in jamb) to study Textile Science and Technology are

  1. Chemistry
  2. Mathematics If you don’t have credit in Mathematics, Click here fast
  3. Fine Art/Physics

 

Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Textile Science and Technology
(i) ‘A’ level passes in Two of Fine Arts, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics.
(ii) ND in Textile Science and Technology or Glass Technology or Fine Art at Credit level

 

Just a reminder: Everything you have read so far is a general requirement, it is expedient that you also check the special consideration for this course below. If for some reasons you are not satisfied or cannot meet up with the subject combination above, perhaps you should consider taking 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.

 

So now that you know the compulsory WAEC, JAMB subject combination for Textile Science and Technology, (which is also applicable to NECO and GCE) as well as A-level result/certificate. Do you know which Universities in Nigeria offer Textile Science and Technology
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

See useful guides on how to choose a course and university
According to 2017/2018 JAMB Brochure, only Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria offers Textile Science and Technology

 

Where can I work with a Degree in Textile Science and Technology 
I believe you now know the subjects required to study Textile Science and Technology. 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.

After completing the engineering course, the students can opt for careers that use their technical and creative skills and they can be placed in the following positions:

  • Quality Managers
  • Production Managers
  • Structural Textile Designers
  • Garment Technologists
  • Fashion Merchandisers
  • Fashion Buyers
  • Dye house Managers
  • Work Study Officers
  • Freelancers/Entrepreneurs
  • Textile and Clothing Lecturers and Research Assistants
  • Fashion Stylists
  • Visual Merchandisers

 

The SSCE O level and A-level subject needed to study Textile Science and Technology have been listed above. Yet, 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. Some Universities may accept D7 or E8 in some a compulsory subject instead of Credit.
