In this article, we shall unveil the engineering courses offered in Nigerian Polytechnics and their admission requirements 2022.

The sweetest part of this news is that they are so many engineering courses that are offered in polytechnics in Nigeria.

Polytechnics in Nigeria offer almost all the engineering courses that are offered in Nigerian universities.

But before you choose to study any engineering course in a Polytechnic, here are some of the things you need to know.

Is it Good to Study Engineering in a Polytechnic?

Yes, it is very good to study engineering in a polytechnic. Practically and technically, it is preferable to study engineering in a polytechnic than a university.

Polytechnics basically train technologists and technicians on scientific research, technological advancement and management skills in science and technology.

In a polytechnic, you would gain more training, practical and technical knowledge of what you are studying.

A graduate from a polytechnic will be awarded a Diploma Award on graduation and the graduate can use it to get any job in his field.


Admission Requirements for Engineering Technology in Polytechnics

To study any engineering course in a Nigerian polytechnic, you will need to meet a JAMB cut off mark of 140. The complement requirements include:

  1. Minimum of 140 JAMB Score
  2. O’level Credit pass in English, Maths, Chemistry, Physics, and Biology
  3. Minimum of two sittings in O’level
