Best Engineering Schools In the Philippines


The Top Ten

1 Mapúa Institute of Technology

The best way to measure the quality education a school is to know how their alumni performs in the industry.

Among all the schools in the Philippines, most famous Filipino engineers gloabally are graduates of Mapua Institute of Technology! Here are some of them:
Engr. Dado Banatao - the Bill Gates of the Philippines. He invented the microchip which is one of the reasons why the Internet is possible, then it later bought by Intel Corporation
Engr. Eduardo San Juan - the inventor of the Moon Buggy
Engr. Jose Ronaldo C. Roque - designed the engine harness of luxury cars such as Jaguar and Land Rover

Mapuans are very distributed across the globe. Here in the Philippines, most of the engineers working in technical companies are graduate of Mapua..
PLDT - 90% are Mapua grads
Meralco - 90% are Mapua grads
SMART - 90% are Mapua grads
ABS-CBN - 90% are Mapua grads
GMA Network - 90% are Mapua grads
And other companies.. (Too many to mention)

This ...more

While school can offer good curriculum.. It still depends on the support of the school on the learning limitations and real capabilities of students it has accepted plus the desire to learn of these students to pursue their dreams...

Mapua is excellent when it comes to engineering. It's true that once you're in, you will truly experience hardships to the extreme, everything is hard in mapua, math in here will make you go crazy, but in the end, you will realize that it's all worth it. Nothing beats the feeling of surviving mapua.

No doubt Mapua is still the best ABET accreditation and other accreditations and other other accreditations made the institute a global center of excellence when it comes to maths and other applied sciences. Do I need to say more?

Key positions in private sectors have Mapua Alumni like myself.

2 University of Santo Tomas

Engineers that graduated from UST aren't bloated with air and self-entitlement like graduates from other universities. Therefore, they excel and learn more in the field because they have a certain degree of humility that doesn't compromise their competence. Thomasians are the top choice if you want to hire professional engineers that can easily be managed and generally better to work with in the field or work place.

Certainly one of the best because of its wholistic engineering coupled with management approach! Best of all, graduates are transformed to God-fearing and pro-people leaders of the community. Go UST!

UST is consistent in producing competent engineers as shown with the results of every board exam.

7 University of the Philippines - Los Baños

Despite the sorry state of education budget and lowest tuition considering high standards of teaching, UP is the best.

In Civil Engineering No other school maintained a 12-year 100 percent passing rate in board exam. We have very few graduates but we have better quality than any engineering school in the country.

Consistent high passing rate

Best Engineering school in the Philippines

8 Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila

Low tuition fee and provide quality education and values

Most, if not all, of the students of PLM during my time belong to a meager-income family of Manila. There must always be an edge over ours those established colleges and universities in terms of learning facilities, engineering equipments, etc. , because our subsistence in the school depended on how much the local government of Manila could provide us. And until these days the situation is still the same. However, despite the odds, PLM is still producing fine graduates and board topnotchers in some fields... Proud to be a PLM alumni.

Has one of the highest passing percentage, if not the highest, among all schools.

Provides quality education

10 Polytechnic University of the Philippines

PUP is the only university that gives better opportunity for those who cannot afford the very high cost of education, but you must have a brain to get accepted. Thanks PUP, I give back by helping start up companies in the Philippines grow. And I will always serve for the best interest of our country.

PUP is undeniably one of the best performing Universities which offers engineering in the Philippines. It even produces board topnotchers and best quality engineers.

I think pup has the quality in teaching engineering and it has low tuition but high quality

Polytechnic University of the Philippines is said to be the "Greatest Game Changer" so watch out for the next years. We may not be suprised if one day, PUP will be in line with the Big 4.

The Contenders

11 University of the Philippines - Diliman

UP Diliman is the best university in almost all fields in the Philippines and with many recognized graduates working for Silicon Valley based and other companies abroad. UP graduates are trained to be resourceful and independent so expect them to accomplish objectives with minimum management supervision.

It's unanimous, when it comes to percentage and number of examinees, although it is cheaper compared to other schools, but when it comes to knowledge UP is the best of all and also it is the highest ranked university for the Philippines when it comes to international rankings, so all of the other courses, UP is the best institution

Even with the lack of government funding the faculty and students are still able to cope with the demands of the industry... "Engineering at its best! "

UP is no. 1 university in the Philippines!

16 Cebu Institute of Technology

Cebu Institute of Technology - University is a Filipino First University. Even after declining offers of partnership by various international mega (Forbes top ranking) companies engaging in shipbuilding, Manufacturing, EPC and R&D did not stop CIT in providing quality Filipino style of education that have been proven for years to be one of the best service providers all over the world.

Simply because CIT strongly believes in the Filipinos, thus keeping its education the Filipino way.
And that is why CIT-U should be considered as the true BEST Filipino University for Engineering!

However, CIT is also engaging in exchange student programs by Japan Universities as some students are being offered by Japan due to their excellence in the field.

CIT currently have 200+ Academic Scholars, 370+ Non-Academic Scholars (Working Students), 430+ Sponsored Scholars (Company Sponsored Scholarships), 250+ Freshmen Scholars (High school Top Students) with a total of 9000+ ...more

It would really be my greatest accomplishment to graduate in this university even though that it took me so long because its really difficult and its everyday survival but it's part of the training that fits us students to be ready for the real engineering world

CIT University has 661 Board Topnotchers with 72 1st placers (majority with engineering majors) to date since 1946.

CIT University is the first higher educational institution (HEI) in the Visayas and Mindanao classified as Category A (t). This places CIT as a mature teaching institution under the CHED-IQUAME framework. IQUAME is Institutional Quality Assurance Through Monitoring and Evaluation, a system of higher education quality assurance and classification.

This should be the 2nd best acholl of the Philippines next to mapua.

It should belong to the top ten in engineering school in the Philippines as the top one in Sanitary Engineering. In Architecture NU is recognized as one of the top five university. Wherever you go in the world in the field of engineering there are always a graduate of NU. It's graduates founded several engineering schools in the Philippines and established engineering curriculum in several colleges. Look at the records of NU's passing rate in Engineering & Architecture.

My brother told me this was the one of the best engineering courses

One of the engineering university in the Philippines which got very rich and well known tradition in engineering. Look at the board exams results and you would be amazed of how many topnotchers in engineering and architecture NU had produced. NU's graduates are employed all over the world in technical field. One of their graduates is Ex Pres. Fidel Ramos (BSCE) and also a graduate of West Point or US Military Academy.
