On this page is everything you may want to know about the Federal University of Technology,Akure (FUTA) Electrical and Electronic Engineering which include the entry requirements for O'Level and direct entry candidates plus the subjects combination for the former and JAMB/UTME.
Electrical and Electronics Engineering at FUTA is designed to equipped prospective engineers with the skills required to face the challenges in all area of rapidly developing Electrical and Electronic Engineering. And so, the curriculum is fashioned after the National University Commission (NUC) Benchmark for Academic Standard which involves exposing students to intensive basic and applied courses, field projects, constant laboratory practical and research works and students industrial work experience scheme.
FUTA's Electrical and Electronic Engineering focus teaching on the area which include but not limited to:
- Computer Control and Instrumentation Engineering
- Electric Power Systems and Machines and
- Communication and Electronics
The students of the Department that are admitted through JAMB are expected to complete 205 units and the direct entry students to complete 162 units before eligible to graduate.
Aplication to study Electrical and Electronic Engineering as a programme at FUTA is process in two different ways and they are as:
- JAMB/UTME Candidates and
- Direct Entry Candidates
Application as a JAMB/UTME candidate eligible an applicant admission to 100 level of the programme and the applicant must have credit passes in five (5) subjects from either one or two of these examination:
- GCE or
- WASSCE or
The five subjects must include:
- English Language
- Chemistry and one other science subject, probably
- Technical Drawing
- Further Mathematics
- Agricultural Science
These subjects combinations must not be more than at two sittings.
The applicant must also write Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and make the required cut off mark.
Jamb/UTME subjects combination are:
- Chemistry and
- English Language
Federal University of Technology Akure Post UTME
After passing JAMB/UTME, the student must also write FUTA post UTME, making the cut off mark for the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
Pre Degree Engineering Programmes
FUTA Pre-degree programme is accepted to 100 level of the Computer Engineering. A student who have problem gaining admission through JAMB can take this route provide he/she satisfy O'Level minimum entry requirements.
Direct Entry Candidates
Students can process admission to study Electrical and Electronic Engineering at FUTA with the following qualifications
- General Certificate of Education, Advance Level (GCE A/L): minimum grade C in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry to be admitted to 200 level
- National Diploma (ND): Minimum of Upper Credits in Electrical and Electronic Engineering or other relevant engineering programmes from government approved polytechnics to be considered for admission to 200 level.
- Higher National Diploma: holders of HND with Upper Credit may be considered for 300 level
Electrical and Electronics Engineering is a minimum of 5 years and maximum of 7 years programme leading to the award of Bachelor of Engineering (Honour) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The programme is approved by National University Commission (NUC) and accredited by the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN)
