Frequently Asked Questions

What are the entry requirements for civil engineering?

A Grade 12 National Senior Certificate (NSC) and a minimum score of 27 points on the CUT scoring scale, plus a minimum mark of 50% on standard grade or 40% on higher grade in both Mathematics and Physical Sciences.

Is civil engineering marketable in Botswana?

There is no fixed or standard career path for a Civil Engineer. In Botswana you can join the vast construction industry, consulting industry, Government Departments, Parastatals and the mining industry.

How many points are required to study engineering in Botswana?

The minimum entry BGCSE points shall be 34 points for all undergraduate Degree and 30 points for Diploma and Certificate programmes. g. The stipulated length of relevant work experience where required must have been met at the time of submitting the application.

How many points do I need for civil engineering?

Requirements: NSC degree pass. 70% for Mathematics and Physical Science. 50% for English and Life Orientation.

Does civil engineering require A lot of math?

Physics equations typically use a combination of algebra, calculus and trigonometry. Math is a really important part of a civil engineer’s job. At places like ADOT, the planning phase of the project (design) and the budget (how much it will cost) are all based upon mathematical calculations by the engineers.

Can I do civil engineering without physics?

We do not require Physics at A-level for entry to our civil engineering degree programmes, although it is always an advantage when studying engineering.

Is civil engineering easy to study?

The only difficult part is Engineering Drawing as reported by most CE students. Otherwise, the course is pretty light and an average student might be able to pursue it. But, do not just base your decision on the diffficulty of the subject, focus on your interests and goals.

Is civil engineering hard to pass?

Civil engineering is a complicated subject to study for an average student. The amount of math and science involved can be overwhelming, and the required reading can be daunting. However, a civil engineer can thrive in this field with the right resources.

Can I do civil engineering if I am weak in maths?

Yes! You can. To be true I was having least score in only one subject and that was mathematics and that too consecutively both in 10th (45/100) and 12th(51/100).

Which engineering has no maths?

Students can go for the best engineering courses after 12th without further maths are software engineering, computer science engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical and communication engineering.
