Universities offering Civil Engineering
So you want to study Civil Engineering… This means you’re a Science student but do have what it takes? I mean, it is not enough to know the list of Nigerian Universities that offer Civil Engineering. You also need to know the WAEC subject that you need to study Civil Engineering as well as the JAMB subjects.
Do you? If no, use the search box below to know the subject combination you need to qualify and study Civil Engineering in Nigeria. This the first steps toward studying Civil Engineering in Nigeria universities. You will need other documents too for pre-screening and Matriculation screening.
Your JAMB score, Post UTME score and WAEC Grade will be calculated and the aggregate score is what determine if you qualify to study Civil Engineering. Moreover, those who got their O level result in one sitting have a better chance of getting admission to study Civil Engineering than those using two sittings.
Do you know that Civil Engineering is one of the most popular courses in Nigeria and very competitive in university? Competitiveness means many students want to gain admission to study this course.
Once a course is competitive, it simply means certain measures are put in place to make sure they limit the number of students they can admit. Such limitation includes high jamb cut off mark, a limited number of admissible students, strict subject combinations etc.
But what is so special about this course… Let me give you a little info about Civil Engineering before you go through the list of universities that offers Civil Engineering in Nigeria.
When it comes to Engineering, Civil Engineering is one of the broadest and oldest of the engineering disciplines, extending across many technical specialities. Civil Engineers plan, design, and supervise the construction of facilities essential to modern life like space satellites and launching facilities, offshore structures, bridges, buildings, tunnels, highways, transit systems, dams, airports, harbours, water supply system and wastewater treatment plants.
A civil engineer is responsible for planning and designing a project, constructing the project to the required scale, and maintenance of the project. A civil engineer requires not only a high standard of engineering knowledge but also supervisory and administrative skills.
Below is a comprehensive list of higher institutions in Nigeria that offers Civil Engineering. If there is a university not listed, please indicate by leaving a comment.
