Top 10 Engineering Schools in the Philippines

There are many engineering courses offered in different universities. Some universities offer a limited set of courses, while others have wider array of engineering courses being offered. Thus, it is difficult to compare engineering schools based on student performance (measured through passing rates in board examinations) due to the fact that not all engineering schools offer the exact same set of engineering courses.

In this list, we rank engineering schools based on the aggregated average of passing rates in the 2015 board examinations on five different engineering courses.

Here are the top ten engineering schools of 2015:


University-of-the-Philippines-DILIMAN-College-of-Engineering-LogoEstablished in 1910, the University of the Philippines College of Engineering (COE) is considered as one of the best and the oldest engineering institutions in the Philippines. (The University of Santo Tomas is the oldest engineering school in the country; founded in 1907.) For over a hundred years, COE has been producing the best engineers in the country, not only based on licensure examinations, but also based on actual praxis in the workplace. The Commission on Higher Education declared all of UP College of Engineering’s degree-granting units as Centers of Excellence.

In the present, it offers eleven (11) undergraduate courses: Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Communications Engineering, Geodetic Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, and Mining Engineering.

The University of the Philippines – Diliman is also home to the National Graduate School of Engineering which offers advanced engineering education. It confers masters and doctorate degrees to those who want to specialize in Environmental Engineering, Water Resources, and Bioenergy, among others. To know more, click here.

High schools students who opt to study at the UP College of Engineering must pass the University of the Philippines College Admission Test (UPCAT). COE is also opened to transferees from other colleges and universities who meet the grade requirements. For more information, visit
