## Requirements To Study Engineering In Botswana

**What is Engineering?**

Engineering is the use of scientific principles to design and build machines, structures, and other items, including bridges, tunnels, roads, vehicles, and buildings.

#### Requirements To Study Engineering In Botswana

Students with high grades in the Botswana General Certificate of Education (BGCSE) would be considered for the University’s Science and Engineering with an integrated foundation year programme. The minimum requirements are five subjects at grade B including Mathematics and Physics.

#### Frequently Asked Questions

**What qualifications do I need to study engineering?**

The average entry requirements for an engineering degree are AAB at A-Level or another Level 3 – 6 vocational qualification e.g. BTEC.

**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.

**What are requirements for civil engineering?**

A Grade 12 National Senior Certificate (NSC) and a minimum score of 32 points on the CUT scoring scale, plus a minimum mark of 50% to 59% (Level 4) in both Mathematics and Physical Sciences.

**What is minimum score for engineering?**

Yes, The AICTE has brought down the minimum criteria to 45 percent aggregate in PCM group in standard XII exam for admissions to engineering course.

**What GPA do you need to get into University of Botswana?**

The normal minimum entrance requirement shall be a Bachelor’s degree of this or any other recognized University or equivalent institution with at least a second class, second division or equivalent (3.0 GPA, on a 5-point scale) in the relevant field.

**Can I study engineering without maths?**

AICTE: One-third of engineering courses do not need maths in Class XII. CHENNAI: Maths in Class XII is no longer mandatory to apply for one-third of engineering courses, including architecture, biotechnology and fashion technology, the All India Council for Technical Education announced on Tuesday.

**What is the easiest engineering job to get?**

Civil engineering can be simpler than other engineering fields because it’s a generalized field that covers all of the basics without diving too deep into more complex aspects of jobs like electrical or chemical engineering. Plus, high demand for the role means it would be easy to land a high-paying state job.

**Can a below average student study engineering?**

yes, any student even if you are average can do well in math exams, in cse engineering.

**What is pass mark in engineering?**

For courses where the evaluation is of 80 marks based on the semester end examination only, the learner will be required to obtain 40% marks, i.e. 32/80 in their exams.

**Is civil engineering 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.

**Which engineer has less maths?**

Mining and biomedical engineering also also less math intense, though they would overlap with civil & mechanical. On the opposite end of the scale, electrical is considered one of the most math intense, as would mechanical & aerospace.

**What type of engineering has the least math?**

It’s considered one of the easier engineering majors that you can study though, because it’s not as focused on advanced math and physics.
