Do you want to study Petroleum Engineering? If yes is the answer then you have to carefully read through this page to get all the necessary information required to seamlessly apply for admission into any higher institution offering Petroleum Engineering.

On this page you will find the following information like WAEC and JAMB Subject Combination for Petroleum Engineering, list of Universities offering Petroleum Engineering, Direct Entry requirements, special consideration and waiver for Petroleum Engineering.

Before you begin to read the following information listed below, it’s important you know that Petroleum Engineering which is under the Faculty of Engineering, Environment & Technology is a course for students with a science background.

JAMB Subject Combination for Petroleum Engineering

There are three (3) subjects that you will see in your JAMB UTME examination. Though it’s not all about knowing the subject but to be able to reach the JAMB cut-off mark for Petroleum Engineering which is 180.

We advice you to aim for 200 and above in your JAMB UTME examination as this is to make you stand a better position of getting admission on merit. Below is the JAMB Subject Combination for Petroleum Engineering:

1). Chemistry.

2). Physics.

3). Mathematics.

WAEC Subject Combination for Petroleum Engineering

If you want to study Petroleum Engineering in any higher institution in Nigeria, you must ensure you have not less than five (5) credit passes in the required subjects. The Subject Combination for Petroleum Engineering can also be applied to NECO, GCE and WAEC. Below is WAEC Subject Combination for Petroleum Engineering:

1). Physics.

2). Chemistry.

3). Use of English Language.

4). Mathematics.

5). And any one Science subject.
