Before we proceed to list out the various Jamb Subject Combination for Civil Engineering and their O Level Requirements as well as Universities offering Civil Engineering, it’s important you note this course is only for science students. So, if you are wondering if an art student can go for this course, then it’s unfortunate because they can’t.

Our prime aim of this article is to show you the (1) ‘O Level’ requirement for studying Civil Engineering, (2) Jamb Subject Combination for Civil Engineering, (3) List of Universities offering Civil Engineering, and finally (4) Places you can work with a degree in Civil Engineering. So, let’s get started.
