O’Level Subjects and Requirements for Chemical Engineering 2024/2025

To be eligible for admission into chemical engineering, you must have at least five credit passes in your O’level examination (WAEC, NECO, GCE, or NABTEB). The compulsory subjects are:

  • English Language
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Any other science subject (Biology, Agricultural Science, or Further Mathematics)

You can use either one or two sittings to combine your O’level results. However, some universities may prefer candidates who have one sitting.

Direct Entry Requirements for Chemical Engineering 2024/2025

If you have a diploma, NCE, ND, or HND in a relevant field of study, you can apply for direct entry admission into chemical engineering. You will need to have an upper credit or distinction in your qualification. You will also need to meet the O’level requirements as stated above.

Some universities may conduct a screening test or interview for direct entry candidates to assess their suitability for the course.

What is the difference between chemistry and chemical engineering?

Chemistry is mostly related to the study of chemical transformations at the lab scale, while chemical engineering is more focused on industrial processes, where both physical and chemical transformations take place and the production scale is very different from the one realised in a lab. One of the most challenging aspects is how to scale-up from the lab scale to the industrial scale, and this is a typical problem in chemical engineering.

What are the educational requirements for chemical engineering?

To study chemical engineering in Nigeria, you need to have the right JAMB subject combination, O’level requirements, and direct entry qualifications. The JAMB subject combination for chemical engineering is English Language, Physics, Mathematics, and Chemistry. The O’level subjects and requirements for chemical engineering are English Language, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and any other science subject. The direct entry requirements for chemical engineering are a diploma, NCE, ND, or HND in a relevant field of study with an upper credit or distinction.

What are the career prospects and opportunities for chemical engineers?

Chemical engineers have a wide range of career options in various industries such as oil and gas, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, cosmetics, biotechnology, environmental engineering, nanotechnology, and materials science. Some of the job roles that chemical engineers can perform include process engineer, product development engineer, research and development engineer, quality control engineer, plant manager, project manager, consultant, lecturer.
