About Civil Engineering

Civil engineering is a highly prestigious and sought-after course. Their works are made bare in almost every built structure in your environment. From roads to dams and other vital systems, civil engineering proves to be a crucial engineering field for the livelihood of humanity.

There will always be a demand for building new structures or improving existing ones. This makes Civil engineering a very lucrative career path. Skilled graduates of Civil engineering shouldn’t have difficulty securing a well-paid job, especially in Nigeria, where development is always a fresh concern.

JAMB and WAEC Subject Combination for Civil Engineering

Moving on, the following sections list the subject combinations required for WAEC/O’LEVEL and for JAMB.

WAEC (O’Level) Subject Combination for Civil Engineering

For WAEC, the most minor subjects combination required a total of five subjects. Here they are

  1. Mathematics
  2. English Language
  3. Physics
  4. Chemistry
  5. A science subject

As required by most Universities in Nigeria, for the five subject combinations stated above, you need at least a credit pass in each of the subjects for admission into Civil engineering. Any grade lower than a credit pass renders that subject ineligible.

Also, while a few Universities may prefer only one sitting, most accept two. This means that if you didn’t meet the requirements in WAEC or a single O-level examination, you could combine two O-level results like WAEC and GCE, which contain at least a credit pass in all the required subject combinations that are listed above.

You can find the info you need on admission requirements on their website, admission portal, or in dedicated articles.

As for the science subject listed, any is acceptable. However, a few universities may prefer it to be Further Mathematics. It’s advised to check the admission requirements on your school admission portal for Civil Engineering. Moving on, let’s proceed to the Jamb subject combination for Civil engineering.

JAMB Subject Combination for Civil Engineering

For JAMB, the subject combination is four in total, which includes

  1. Mathematics
  2. English Language
  3. Physics
  4. Chemistry

One perfect piece of advice is to score as high as possible in JAMB because the competition is high for those seeking admission to civil engineering. It’s a top engineering course, so it is no surprise as to why it is so. The General cutoff mark is at least 200 and 180, depending on the University of your choice.

If the cut-off mark isn’t met, then you will have to wait to take another jamb the following year. Still, you can also find admission in polytechnics, college universities, private universities, and some state universities. For these institutions, the cutoff mark requirements are set very low and are relatively easy for many students to pass without a hassle.
