N/B: The official departmental cut-off mark of Modibbo Adamawa University of Technology (MAUTECH) has not been released at the time of publishing this article.

However we advice you to treat the above list as a mere guide and not taken as the actual cut-off mark. We shall update the list as soon as the official cut-off mark is released.


Modibbo Adamawa University of Technology, Yola is formerly known as Federal University of Technology, Yola, Adamawa state Nigeria. It was established in 1981 by the Federal Government of Nigeria to provide the much needed technologically skilled manpower for the nation.

It is one of the Federal Universities in Nigeria recognized by National Universities Commission (NUC) to offer Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctorate degrees in different fields of Science and Technology.

The University’s first set of 108 students graduated in the 1988/99 academics session. The university was merged to University of Maidugiri in 1984, when it became the Modibbo Adamawa Campus (MACUM), of University of Maidugiri.

With a students’ population of over 20,000, the University runs undergraduate and postgraduate programs. In addition to conventional full time programs, the university runs Degree programs through its Distance Learning and Centres. Some of these online universities in Nigeria also have such programmes.

Its Consultancy Services Unit also runs Diploma and Certificates in over twenty programs. Teaching and Research in Science and Technology have been the main thrust of the University.

These have been attracting to the University series of collaboration and partnership with foreign Universities, Corporate bodies, Government and non-Governmental Organizations. Six distinguished professors has successfully steered the affairs of the University as Vice Chancellors from its inception.


There are seven academic faculties in MAUTECH. These faculties include the following:

  1. School of Agriculture and Agricultural Technology
  2. School of Engineering and Engineering Technology
  3. Environmental Sciences
  4. School of Management and Information Technology
  5. School of Technology and Science Education
  6. School of Pure and Applied Science

What is the school fee of MAUTECH?

The school fee of Modibbo Adamawa University of Technology is about N25, 000 per year. This does not include some other departmental dues and course registration fees. It does not also cover accommodation.

What is Post UTME?

Post UTME is short for Post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination. In other words, it is Post JAMB or the exam written by JAMB candidates just after the UTME before admission.

Post UTMEs are just recognized admission screening exams that higher institutions in Nigeria conduct for students who apply for higher education admission in Nigeria.

Each University organizes and conducts her own Post UTME but for a candidate to take part in this exam, the candidate must have applied to the University, wrote JAMB with a score equal to or above the general JAMB and University cut-off mark.

If a candidate fails to write Post UTME, he or she will be denied admission irrespective of how high the candidate scored in JAMB exam.


In order to secure admission in MAUTECH, you must meet the set cut-off mark of your dream department. I am afraid you will be denied admission when the reverse is the case.

But at this point, I will believe that you have got enough information about the Modibbo Adamawa University of Technology JAMB cut-off mark and their departmental cut-off marks too.
