Studying Biomedical Engineering / Technology is the dream of most aspiring candidates. In this post, we will be showing the various requirements needed to successfully gain admission into any institution in Nigeria to Study Biomedical Engineering / Technology.
We will provide you with the WAEC and JAMB Subjects combinations to Study Biomedical Engineering / Technology. You will also see the list of Universities in Nigeria offering this course as well as the requirements both for Direct Entry candidates. Finally, you will find other information like special considerations and waivers for each of the universities and places you can work with a degree in Biomedical Engineering / Technology and more.
WAEC Subject combination for Biomedical Engineering/Tech.
There are five subjects that are very relevant if you want to study Biomedical Engineering / Technology. Before you can be eligible to study this course at any Nigerian University, you must ensure you have credit passes in the required 5 subjects which are applicable to NECO, GCE & WAEC. Below are the WAEC Subject combination to study Biomedical Engineering / Technology:
- English Language
JAMB UTME Subject Combination for Biomedical Engineering/Tech.
If you want to study Biomedical Engineering / Technology at any Nigerian University through UTME then you must first ensure that you score up to the JAMB cut-off mark for this course which is 180. But we will urge you to aim for 200 and above to stand a better chance.
Anything short of 180 will disqualify you from being eligible to study Biomedical Engineering / Technology in any University in Nigeria, though you can still study it at the College of Education or Polytechnic. Apart from JAMB, there are other ways of gaining admission into an institution such as through ND, IJBM, JUBEB or Predegree. Below are the JAMB UTME subject combinations to study Biomedical Engineering / Technology:
Direct Entry Requirements
If you know you wouldn’t be using UTME to gain admission, then you must fulfil the Direct Entry admission to study Biomedical Engineering requirements below:
- You are required to have 2 ‘A-level’ passes in Chemistry and any of the following (Physics, Mathematics and Biology/ Zoology/Botany).
WAIVER / SPECIAL CONSIDERATION
UNIILORIN – Same as Agricultural and Biosystem Engineering. They also require Relevant Programmes like Chemical Engineering Technology, Biomedical Engineering Technology, Materials and Metallurgical Engineering Technology, Electrical and Electronics Engineering Technology, Foundry Engineering Technology, Glass/Ceramics Technology, Water and Mechanical Engineering Technology, Environmental Engineering Technology, Polymer Technology, Welding, Fabrication Technology, and Metallurgy.
