Do you want to study Aircraft Engineering Technology at any Nigerian University? If Yes is your answer, then you have to pay close attention to this article. In this article, you will find the WAEC & JAMB Subject Combination for Aircraft Engineering Technology, Direct Entry requirements, and more.

You will also find the list of Nigerian University where you can study this course, as well as places you can work with a degree in Aircraft Engineering Technology and many more. Before we proceed, we will like to inform you that Aircraft Engineering Technology is a course for science students only. This means that commercial or art students are not eligible to apply for admission to study this course at any Nigerian University.

‘O’ Level Requirement to Study Aircraft Engineering Technology

To stand the chance to gain admission into any of the Nigerian Universities listed below to study Aircraft Engineering Technology, then you must ensure you meet the required subject combination. You are required to have not less than five (5) credit passes in your SSCE examination. The five (5) compulsory WAEC subject combination for Aircraft Engineering Technology is:

1). Use of English Language.


2). Physics.

3). Mathematics.

4). Chemistry.

5). And any one (1) other Science subjects.


JAMB Subject Combination for Aeronautical Engineering

The truth is that it doesn’t end with knowing the JAMB subject combination for Aeronautical Engineering. The main deal is to aim to reach or exceed 180 which is JAMB’s cut-off mark for this course. I would suggest you aim for 200 and above to be on the safe side. Anyway, below are the JAMB UTME subject combinations to study Aeronautical Engineering

1). Mathematics

2). Chemistry

3). Physics

Requirement for Aerospace Engineering (Direct Entry)

If you want to further your education to study Aerospace Engineering at any of the Nigerian universities mentioned below, then you must be able to satisfy the requirements listed below.

A Level passes in any 2 of Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics.

Nigerian Universities Offering Aerospace Engineering

  • AFIT (Air Force Institute of Technology, Kaduna)
  • FUTO (Federal University of Technology, Owerri)
  • KWASU (Kwara State University, Ilorin)

Places You Can Work as an Aeronautical Engineer

Aeronautical Engineering is not the conventional course that you can study at any University in Nigeria. It’s a rare course as well as Universities offer it. An aeronautical engineer is trained to contribute, manufacture, test, and design some of the advanced technologies that are associated with space science and defense.

There are many places some with a Bachelor’s Degree in Aerospace Engineering can work, beginning as a flight mechanic, developer of the new defense system, and more. Below are some of the places Aerospace Engineers can work;

  • Airport
  • Defense Research
  • Civil Aviation Department
  • National Aeronautical Laboratory
  • And more coming…
