Note that some Nigerian Universities offer both courses (double-honor), while some universities offer either Electronics Engineering or Electrical Engineering.

Basically, the Universities in Nigeria have nearly the same O’level (WAEC, NECO, etc.) and JAMB UTME requirements for studying Electronics/Electrical Engineering. As a matter of fact, almost all engineering universities have the same admission requirements.

But it remains important to take note of the tiny differences before applying to JAMB.

Requirements for Studying Electrical/Electronics Engineering

‘O’ level subject combination (WAEC, NECO, etc.)

To be eligible for admission to study Electrical/Electronics Engineering, you must score at least 5 SSCE credit passes, which must include English Language, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and one other science subject.

Therefore, the NABTEB, NECO or WAEC subject combination for Computer/Electronics Engineering is English Language, Mathematics, Chemistry, and Physics.

The other science subject can be Geography, Biology, Metal Work, Wood Work, Basic Electricity, Technical Drawing, Agric Science, etc.

Your overall grade must not be below five credit passes in at most 2 sittings combined.

JAMB cut off mark for Electrical/Electronics Engineering

Most Nigerian Universities allow students to partake in their Post UTME for Electrical/Electronics Engineering if they score at least 180 in the JAMB UTME.

We advise you to score way higher than that in order to stand a good chance of gaining admission.
