JAMB Subject Combination for Engineering Physics 2025/2026


JAMB Subject Combination for Engineering Physics 2025/2026: Engineering Physics is a multidisciplinary field that combines the principles of physics, mathematics, and engineering to solve complex problems in various domains such as nanotechnology, biotechnology, renewable energy, and quantum computing. If you are interested in pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics in any accredited Nigerian university, you need to know the admission requirements and the subject combination for JAMB UTME and Direct Entry.

In this post, we will provide you with the following information:

  • The list of universities offering Engineering Physics in Nigeria
  • The O’Level subjects and requirements for Engineering Physics 2024/2025
  • The UTME subjects combination for Engineering Physics 2024/2025
  • The Direct Entry Requirements for Engineering Physics 2024/2025

List of Universities Offering Engineering Physics in Nigeria

According to the JAMB brochure, only one university in Nigeria offers Engineering Physics as a course. That is:

  • Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU)

However, some other universities offer similar courses such as:

  • Applied Physics
  • Industrial Physics
  • Physics with Electronics
  • Physics with Computational Modelling

You can check the JAMB brochure for the full list of these courses and the universities that offer them.

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

To be eligible for admission into Engineering Physics, you need to have at least five (5) SSCE credit passes in the following subjects:

  • English Language
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • And any one of Biology, Geography, Further Mathematics, or Technical Drawing


You can use any of WAEC, NECO, NABTEB, or GCE results to apply for this course. However, you need to make sure that your O’Level result is not more than two sittings.

UTME Subjects Combination for Engineering Physics 2024/2025

The JAMB UTME subjects combination for Engineering Physics are:

  • English Language (compulsory)
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • And Mathematics

You need to score at least 200 in JAMB UTME to be considered for admission into Engineering Physics. However, the actual cut-off mark may vary depending on the performance of candidates and the availability of spaces. You can check the JAMB cut-off marks for the previous years to get an idea of what to expect.

Direct Entry Requirements for Engineering Physics 2025/2026

If you want to apply for Engineering Physics through Direct Entry, you need to have one of the following qualifications:

  • A Level passes in Physics and Mathematics
  • ND/HND in Engineering or Physics with a minimum of Upper Credit
  • NCE in Physics or Mathematics with a minimum of Credit

You also need to meet the O’Level requirements as stated above.


To conclude, Engineering Physics is a challenging and rewarding course that requires a strong background in physics, mathematics, and engineering. It is offered by only one university in Nigeria, which is Obafemi Awolowo University. To gain admission into this course, you need to meet the O’Level, UTME, and Direct Entry requirements as specified by JAMB. If you have any questions or feedback, please leave a comment below.
