This page contains all the requirements needed to study Systems Engineering. On this page, you will find the WAEC and JAMB Subjects Combinations to Study Systems Engineering. You will also find the Direct Entry requirements as well as the list of all the Universities in Nigeria where you can Study Systems Engineering.

Systems Engineering happens to be a pure science course which means that commercial or art students wouldn’t be able to apply for admission into any higher institution in Nigeria to study Systems Engineering. Below are all the requirements you need to know about Systems Engineering which is under the faculty of Engineering, Environment & Technology.

WAEC Subjects Combinations for Systems Engineering

To be eligible to study Systems Engineering, you are required to obtain five (5) credit passes in your SSCE in the required subjects. The subjects apply to NECO, GCE, and WAEC, and below are the WAEC Subject Combination for Systems Engineering:

1). Use of English Language.

2). Further Mathematics.

3). Chemistry.

4). Physics.

5). Mathematics.

JAMB Subjects Combinations for Systems Engineering

If you were able to meet up with the required SSCE subject combination for Systems Engineering, then it’s time to pass the second stage which is JAMB. The JAMB cut-off mark for Systems Engineering is 180, though we urge you to score up to 200 and above to stand in a better position.

There are three (3) compulsory subjects that you will meet in your JAMB UTME examination and the JAMB Subjects Combinations for Systems Engineering includes;

1). Physics.

2). Chemistry.

3). Mathematics.

Direct Entry Requirements for Systems Engineering

It’s also possible to gain admission into any institution via direct entry provided you meet the Direct Entry Requirements for Systems Engineering which have been listed below;

1). ‘A’ level passes in Pure/Applied or Pure and Mathematics, Chemistry, and Physics.


1). UNILAG accepts;

i). HND/ND upper credit in Engineering courses such as Chemical, Computer, Civil and Environmental, Metallurgical and Materials, Electrical and Electronics, Surveying and Geoinformatics, Petroleum and Gas into 300/200 level.

ii). Very good passes in JUPEB subjects: Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics.
