Admission Requirements

– All copies of certificates submitted with the application must be certified true copies.
– To pursue studies in any of the above five offered engineering specializations requires a two-stage process:
– Firstly, admission into the School of Engineering (as a second-year student) and secondly, being allocated a quota/specialization of choice into third-year student after successful completion of the previous academic year (general engineering). Since the School has limited places for engineering education, all second-year students are subjected to competition. Applicants with a Diploma or higher level qualifications are allocated their preferred engineering specialization directly at second-year level according to a fixed allocation in each specialization. The guidelines for the two-stage admission into the School of Engineering and specialization in any of the five branches are detailed as follows:
– School of Natural Sciences students:
– The School of Engineering makes recommendation for the required number of students who can be taken up via this category (Engineering quota). At the end of the first year of study in the School of Natural Sciences, students make preference to come to the School of Engineering. Since the number of students in this quota is fixed, the cut-off point is determined by the required number of students and the performance in that particular academic year of study. On average, this category enrols about 100 students into the School of Engineering.
– Entry requirements for Diploma (or higher qualification) holders:
– At least a credit or better in Five ‘O’ levels in mathematics, English and an acceptable science subject
– At least a credit or better in Diploma (Technologist) or higher qualification in a relevant technical field and
– At least one (1) year of proven and relevant working experience after graduation with a Diploma. A letter from the employer showing proof of the relevant working experience must be attached.
– Entry requirements for ‘A’ level holders
– At least three (3) ‘A’ passes (grade of C) with at least a pass grade ‘B’ in either Mathematics or Physics.
– For holders of City and Guilds qualifications, the Diploma is taken to mean level 4 (Full Technological Certificate, Full Technological Diploma or Advanced Technician Diploma).
– Attainment of at least a credit in “O’ level Mathematics and in an acceptable Science subject.
– Attainment of at least a credit or better in the Diploma (Technologist) in a relevant technical field. For holders of City and Guilds qualifications, the diploma is taken to mean Level 4 (Full Technological Certificate, Full Technological Diploma or Advanced Technician Diploma).
– At least one (1) year of proven and relevant working experience after graduation with a diploma. A letter from the employer showing proof of the relevant working experience must be attached.
