Despite your previous experiences, I promise to give you not just the JAMB cut-off of mark of FUTA but also give you the details of all departmental cut-off marks of this university of technology.


The official JAMB cut-off mark of the Federal University of Technology, Akure is 180. This is the same with every university in Nigeria.

Nevertheless, every department in the university do not accept students with certain aggregate (a product of their JAMB score). This invariably means that some departments have cut-off marks higher than 180.

The Federal University of Technology Akure is one of the foremost universities of technology in Nigeria. It was established in 1981 alongside other universities like Federal University of Technology, Owerri, University of Agriculture, Abeokuta and so on.

The idea behind the establishment of this school and other technology school is to produce Nigerian graduates with practical and theoretical knowledge about technology, to aid the technological development of the country.


FUTA is located in Akure, the capital city of Ondo State. The Federal University of Technology, Akure has 8 undergraduate faculties with a post graduate faculty.

  6. School of Management Technology (SMAT)

FUTA is ranked top among the universities of technology in Nigeria. That defines that they follow a path of educational quality supported with cutting edge services in technology and science. It will not be a wring decision if you have chosen to apply for admission in the university.


Students who are admitted by FUTA through the UTME mode are students who have applied it as their first choice of institution. It is not advisable you choose any federal university as a second choice of institution during your JAMB registration.

After JAMB examination, students who made from 180 and above are allowed to purchase the school’s post UTME form. After successful screening through the post UTME, students who made up to the required cut-off mark for their department of choice will be admitted on merit.

Supplementary form is sold afterwards for students who did not make it in the merit admission list. With the Supplementary form, candidates can make changes in their choice of course. This means that they will go for courses which their cut-off marks are up to the aggregate they have.
