Referencing the introduction already made above, this is a notice to all aspirants who wish to apply for admission into any of the universities in Nigeria to study Mechanical Engineering under the faculty of Engineering, Environment and Technology that the list of compulsory subjects as well as optional subjects required in O level result (WAEC and NECO) before applying for admission into Mechanical Engineering has been published in this post.

As mentioned above, some of these NECO and WAEC subject requirements are compulsory which means you need to have at least a minimum of Credit passes (C6) in them in your o level result before you can use it to apply for admission to study Mechanical Engineering.

Also, keep in mind that some schools may have special subject combination requirements for the subjects that are eligible to be used in JAMB before one can gain admission into Mechanical Engineering. Irrespective of the subjects required by each school, English Language and Mathematics are compulsory subjects that you need to pass before you can gain admission to study Mechanical Engineering.

If you are also interested in JAMB subject combination for Mechanical Engineering you can start by checking out JAMB subject combination for Mechanical Engineering here or use the general approach by checking JAMB subject combination for all courses here.

O Level (WAEC and NECO) Subject Requirements For Mechanical Engineering

The WAEC subjects required to study Mechanical Engineering are as follows:

Five SSCE credit passes to include Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, English Language and any other Science subject.

Special Requirements (Waiver) Remarks

(i) FUAM accepts a pass in English Language.

(ii) FUTO accepts any other Science subjects as the fifth subject and not more than two sittings.

(iii)FUNAAB requires five SSCE credit passes in English Language, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology and Physics.

(iv) NDU requires five ‘O’ level credit passes in English Language, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and any other subject in not more than two sittings.

(v) UNIJOS, OSUSTECH and UNILAG require a credit pass in Further Mathematics.

(vi) ESUTECH requires credit pass in English Language and other relevant subjects.

(vii) BELLS require five SSCE Credit passes in English Language, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and any other Science subject.

(viii) LASU as for two sittings, requires six credit passes in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, English Language, one Science subject and any other subject.

(ix) UI accept ND/HND at upper credit level.

(x) UI accepts 2 ‘A’ level passes in Physics and
Mathematics plus UTME requirements. Accepts also
ND/HND at upper credit level {65%} accepted to 200/300 Upper levels respectively plus UTME requirements. Knowledge of Further Mathematics is an advantage for all Engineering Courses.

(xi) FED-OYEEKITI requires five Credit Passes in SSCE (or its equivalent) including English Language, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry and one Science or Social Science subject.

(xii) FUNAAB requires credit pass in Biology.

(xiii) UNN requires five O’ level credit passes to include, Physics, Chemistry Mathematics, in not more than two sittings.

As mentioned earlier, the WAEC subject combination and requirements for Mechanical Engineering posted above are only eligible if you want to study Mechanical Engineering under the faculty of Engineering, Environment and Technology. If the course you are looking for is in another faculty, keep in mind that the o level subject requirements may vary and as such, you need to check the WAEC and NECO requirements for that course under the faculty of interest. You can check JAMB brochure for all faculties here.
