To be admitted for the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering of MRU, a candidate must satisfy the general minimum entrance requirements of the National Council of Higher Education (NCHE) and Muteesa 1 Royal University (MRU). This will be through two avenues which are: Direct entry and Diploma entry.
Candidates seeking admission through the direct entry avenue must have obtained:
Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) or it's equivalent.
At least five passes at the same sitting in the Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) or at O-Level. The passed subjects should include mathematics and physics.
At least two Principal passes were obtained at the same sitting in Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) including mathematics and physics.
Eligibility to enroll for Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering shall be computed points using the weighted index as shown in the table below; the advanced level subjects shall be grouped and weighted as shown in the table below
Chemistry, Economics, Technical Drawing, Applied Mathematics, or Pure Mathematics.
DIPLOMA HOLDERS’ ENTRY AVENUE
Holders of the Uganda National Examinations Board Diploma or its equivalent from a recognized institution can be admitted to the program. Applicants must have passed diploma in any of these fields;
Civil and Building Engineering, Water Engineering, Architectural Draughtsman ship or a related field,
Science Technology (Physics or Chemistry), Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Ceramics, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning, Electrical Engineering,
Any other Engineering field as approved by the Muteesa I Royal University Senate.
ADMISSION TO FIRST YEAR
Candidates with ordinary diplomas can only be admitted to the first year.
ADMISSION TO OTHER YEARS
Admissions to other years of study than to the 1st year of the program shall require a special resolution of the Faculty Board and permission of the Senate of Muteesa I Royal University.
