JAMB Subject Combination for Biomedical Engineering 2024/2025: Biomedical engineering is a branch of engineering that applies the principles and techniques of engineering to solve problems in medicine and biology. Biomedical engineers design, develop, and test devices, systems, and software that can improve human health and quality of life. Some examples of biomedical engineering products are artificial organs, prosthetic limbs, implantable devices, medical imaging systems, biosensors, drug delivery systems, and tissue engineering.

If you are interested in studying biomedical engineering in any accredited Nigerian university, you need to know the requirements and the subject combination for this course. In this blog post, we will provide you with the following information:

  • The list of universities offering biomedical engineering in Nigeria
  • The O’Level subjects and requirements for biomedical engineering
  • The UTME subjects combination for biomedical engineering
  • The Direct Entry requirements for biomedical engineering

List of Universities Offering Biomedical Engineering in Nigeria


According to the JAMB Brochure, the following universities offer biomedical engineering or biomedical technology as a course:

  • Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State (ABUAD)
  • Achievers University, Owo, Ondo State
  • Bells University of Technology, Ota, Ogun State
  • University of Ilorin, Ilorin, Kwara State
  • University of Lagos, Lagos State
  • Technical University, Ibadan, Oyo State
  • Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State (FUTA)
  • Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Imo State (FUTO)

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

To study biomedical engineering in any of the above universities, you need to have at least five (5) SSC credit passes in the following subjects:

  • English Language
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology

Some universities may have additional or specific requirements for admission. For example, ABUAD requires a minimum of B2 in Mathematics and Physics. Therefore, it is advisable to check the JAMB Brochure for the exact requirements of each university.

UTME Subjects Combination for Biomedical Engineering 2024/2025

To apply for biomedical engineering through UTME (Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination), you need to register for four (4) subjects. The compulsory subject is English Language. The other three (3) subjects are:

  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology

These are the same subjects that you need to have credit passes in your O’Level results. You also need to score at least 180 in your UTME to be eligible for admission. However, some universities may have higher cut-off marks than others. For example, UNILAG requires a minimum of 200. Therefore, you should aim to score as high as possible in your UTME to increase your chances of admission.

Direct Entry Requirements for Biomedical Engineering

If you have an OND (Ordinary National Diploma), HND (Higher National Diploma), NCE (Nigeria Certificate in Education), or A Level qualification in a relevant field, you can apply for biomedical engineering through Direct Entry. This means that you will be admitted into 200 level instead of 100 level. The Direct Entry requirements for biomedical engineering are:

  • Two (2) A Level passes in Chemistry and any one of Physics, Biology/Zoology/Botany and Mathematics
  • OND/HND/NCE with at least Upper Credit in a relevant field

Some universities may have additional or specific requirements for Direct Entry admission. For example, FUTA requires at least two (2) years post qualification experience. Therefore, it is advisable to check the JAMB Brochure for the exact requirements of each university.

Conclusion

Biomedical engineering is a fascinating and rewarding course that can open up many opportunities for you in the fields of medicine and technology. However, you need to meet the requirements and the subject combination for this course before you can apply for admission. We hope that this blog post has provided you with the necessary information and guidance on how to achieve your dream of becoming a biomedical engineer.
