Firstly, we would like to inform you that Electrical and Computer Engineering is under the faculty of engineering, environment & technology. This course can only be studied by candidates with a science background and that means that commercial or art students are not qualified to study this electrical and computer engineering.

The Waec/ Jamb Subject Combination for Electrical And Computer Engineering will be provided in the following paragraphs alongside the list of Universities offering this course. The main aim of this page is to provide you with the general prerequisites and Direct Entry requirements and more.

Jamb Subject Combination for Electrical And Computer Engineering

It’s important you note that knowing the jamb subject combination for electrical and computer engineering is not all that is required. You must ensure you score above JAMB’s cut-off mark for this course which is 180.

As a matter of fact, we urge you to aim for 200 and above to stand a better chance of being admitted into any higher institution in Nigeria offering this course. See the 3 compulsory Jamb Subject Combination for Electrical and Computer Engineering below:

1). Physics.

2). Chemistry.

3). Mathematics.

Waec Subject Combination for Electrical And Computer Engineering

To stand the chance of being admitted into any Nigerian institution offering admission to study Electrical and Computer Engineering, ensure the O’level requirement. There are five (5) compulsory O’Level subjects for this course. You must ensure you have a credit pass in all the fiive (5) subjects. See the Waec Subject Combination for Electrical and Computer Engineering below:

1). Physics.

2). Mathematics.

3). Chemistry.

4). English Language.

5). And any other Science or Social science subject.


1). UNIPORT requires the fifth O’Level credit pass to be a Science subject most preferably Further Maths.

Electrical and Computer Engineering Requirement for Direct Entry

If you don’t intend to apply for admission into any higher institution with UTME, then you must satisfy the Electrical and Computer Engineering requiremets for direct entry which is below:

1). ‘A’ level passes in Physics and Mathematics.

2). ND upper credit /HND Upper/Lower credit in Elect Eng..


1). LASU accepts ND/HND upper credit in which must be in a relevant programme for a 4 years programme.

2). ABU requires:

i). ‘A’ level/IJMB passes in Physics and Mathematics.
ii). ND/HND upper/lower credit in Electrical Engineering with distinction in Mathematics respectively.

3). UNIPORT (University of Port-harcourt, River State ) – No Direct Entry.

4). UNIABUJA accepts ND upper credit or HND lower credit in Electrical Engineering from accredited institutions in addition to UTME requirements into 200 level.

5). FUTMINNA accepts ND/HND lower credit in relevant programmes in addition to 5 O’Level credit passes in Use of English Language, Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, and one other science subject.
