I want to study Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Eng, etc. What should be my target score in this upcoming Jamb Utme? I mean what should I score to make me be on the safe side?
The answer is simple. Engineering cut of marks varies with schools. For competitive schools, you should be qualified to sit for Post UTME with 200 Jamb score. Other schools accept 170 to 180 for Engineering.
180 Jamb score and above is okay for any Private and State University. With a score above 220 in Jamb, you will be eligible for admission into almost any Federal school in Nigeria.
Here is a summary of the main branches of Engineering studied in Nigeria:
This branch of Engineering deals with farm machinery and structures, natural resources, bioenergy and farm power systems. Sub-disciplines include food Engineering, aquaculture, and bioprocess Engineering.
Biomedical Engineering is an interdisciplinary speciality that applies Engineering principles to medical and biological problems and systems. This discipline commonly deals with medical therapies, monitoring devices, and diagnostic tools.
Chemical Engineering (CE) applies chemistry to develop new materials and processes to convert materials into useful products.
Civil Engineering (CE) is one of the oldest forms of Engineering. Civil Engineering pertains to the discipline pertaining to the design, construction, analysis, and maintenance of structures, both natural and man-made, including bridge, roads, dams, and buildings.
Sub-disciplines of civil Engineering may include construction Engineering, materials Engineering, control Engineering, structural Engineering, urban Engineering, municipal Engineering, biomechanics, and surveying.
Computer Engineering integrates computer science with electrical Engineering to develop and analyze circuits, microprocessors, and computers. Computer Engineeringineers tend to focus more on hardware while software Engineeringineers traditionally focus on programming and software design.
Electrical Engineering (EE) involves the study and application of electricity and electronics. Some consider computer Engineering and software Engineering to be subdisciplines of electrical Engineering.
Electronic Engineering, optical Engineering, power Engineering, control Engineering, and telecommunications Engineering are EE specialities.
Environmental Engineering works to prevent or remediate pollution or to maintain or improve the natural environment. This includes water, land, and air resources. Related disciplines are industrial hygiene and environmental Engineering law.
Mechanical Engineering (ME) may be considered the mother of all Engineering branches. Mechanical Engineering applies physical principles and materials science to the design, manufacture, and analysis of mechanical systems.
Mechatronics combines mechanical Engineering and electrical Engineering, frequently in the analysis of automated systems. Robotics, avionics, and instrumentation Engineering may be considered types of mechatronics.
Petroleum Engineeringineers apply scientific principles to detect, drill and extract crude oil and natural gas. Types of petroleum Engineering includes drilling Engineering, reservoir Engineering, and production Engineering.
Structural Engineering pertains to the design and analysis of load-bearing structures and supports. In many cases, this is a subdiscipline of civil Engineering, but structural Engineering also applies to other structures, such as vehicles and machinery.
