Top 10 Best Engineering Schools in the Philippines

The Top Ten
1 Mapúa Institute of Technology

Mapúa Institute of Technology is initially a very challenging school. Once you are inside, your life will be in black and white. Mathematics is prevalent, and there are numerous Exit Exams, similar to pre-board style examinations, plus Correlations, which resemble board exam styles. However, once you graduate from Mapúa, you will realize it was all worth it. The real world will seem easier because you survived all the hardships. In Mapúa, it's about hard experiences that teach you the real world is not always a celebration and that survival of the fittest prevails.

Being a Mapuan takes a huge amount of guts, bravery, and great mental fortitude. This institute is a superb training ground for entering the rigorous and stressful world. Staying here, you will realize that the most essential purpose of education is to teach us how to think critically, many thanks to these great and inspiring professors. It will also be a great character-building experience at this institute.

The pride of being a Mapuan isn't just about boasting but rather a mindset that elevates your confidence, which is greatly needed in the workplace. You will see this when you observe these graduates in the workplace. They definitely have a great presence of mind and a sense of dedication to their craft. Viva Mapuans.

2 University of Santo Tomas

Engineers who 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 possess a degree of humility that doesn't compromise their competence. Thomasians are the top choice if you want to hire professional engineers who can be easily managed and are generally better to work with in the field or workplace.

Beyond learning and involvement, Thomasian Engineers are protected and guided by Christian values imbued by the University. They perform duties as well-geared Engineers, but within is the imparted truth of social conscience based on strong faith and respect for Christian truth and professional ethics.

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

3 University of the Philippines - Diliman

This survey is ridiculous. UP is no. 1. It is incomparable to other engineering schools in the Philippines in terms of quality of education. The professors here are very well-known and established in their field. It is a fact that many teachers in other engineering schools are from UP, and it is a testament to the quality of UP Engineering students.

I think the only downfall of UP - both Diliman and Los Baños - when it comes to engineering courses is the lack of facilities. But overall, UP is still the top university in the Philippines based on the QS university rankings. UP Diliman also records a 100% passing rate in this year's Chemical Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering board exams. Most of the professors in other engineering schools are from UP.

UP Diliman is the best university in almost all fields in the Philippines, 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.

4 De La Salle University - Manila

Lasallian engineering graduates are becoming way better now. In recent years, they perform very well in every board examination, providing topnotchers and even becoming a top-performing school. It's the only private university recognized by international organizations.

The student-mentor relationship is one of the best. There are no "terrors" as the faculty respects learning as a mutually co-extensive process. It is an academe of world-class recognition for excellence. They really love to teach, regardless of whether you are rich or not.

DLSU must be in the top 4, followed by UST. I am not an alumnus of this school, but for me, DLSU belongs to the top 5 engineering schools in the Philippines.

5 Saint Louis University

Engineers from SLU are no doubt one of the BEST in the Philippines or even globally. In fact, I can say that they really are the best if we consider ATTITUDE. Some Engineers, especially from those schools that are so full of themselves, are often rude and tend to look down on others. Just saying.

This should be in the top 10. I don't study here, but looking at the results they give every year, they deserve to be in the top 10.

Where is SLU now on the list? We are globally recognized, not only in the Philippines! SLU is losing its trademark, becoming more commercialized rather than academically excellent.

6 University of San Carlos

I personally consider USC as the best Engineering school in Cebu. It is equipped with the latest engineering materials and comprises quality professors who are thoroughly trained in their fields of practice. Most of all, USC is composed of highly-practiced students who are not only good at engineering practices but also excel as leaders, community servers, and God-fearing individuals.

Students here at USC are really globally competitive! It's the best university in the country!

USC is one of the best engineering schools in the Philippines. It must be ranked no. 6. The best in Chemical Engineering, ECE, and Architecture.

7 Technological Institute of the Philippines

Technological Institute of the Philippines is one of the pioneers in outcomes-based education in the country. Its 18 offered programs, mostly in engineering and ICT, are accredited by ABET, a US-based engineering and computing accreditation institution. This means that TIP is capable of providing students with quality education that meets global standards.

TIP has also proven to be one of the best by producing licensed graduates, even topnotchers, in different engineering exams administered by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).

Despite offering teaching methods that comply with global standards, TIP remains one of the most affordable schools for truly aspiring and talented engineering and ICT students, compared to other engineering/computing schools.

TIP is now one of the top schools in the Philippines when it comes to engineering because, aside from offering a high standard of education, it also provides low-cost tuition fees. This enables every Filipino youth to attain excellent training. Why do you need to enroll in an expensive engineering school if you can attain the same standard and high level of education at a cheaper price? And take note, when it comes to competition, TIP is leading... TIP is the best! We got ABET accreditation!

8 Bulacan State University

One of the best universities for Engineering! Many thanks to the brilliant professors/teachers (especially in the Mechanical Engineering department) who devoted and continue to devote themselves to teaching & molding students to become future engineers!

Is the best Engineering School in Central Luzon having a high percentage of board passers and topnotchers in most fields of engineering? The UP of Bulacan. It offers affordable fees with good quality education.

Engineering is synonymous with Bulacan State University! Bulacan State University is simply the best! This is proven with the large number of topnotchers and board passers in any field of engineering.

9 Technological University of the Philippines

I graduated with a degree in Electronics Technology here at TUP-Manila. I acquired highly competitive skills, which I've been using in my current work. I've learned a lot of knowledge and skills beyond my expectation. That's why this is one of the premier state universities in technology here in the Philippines.

Since studying at TUP, I've realized that tuition fee is not the basis for a school's excellence. Even though TUP does not have the best facilities, it has the best professors who produce the best future engineers.

Focuses not only on academic subjects but more on actual application training and technical skills of individuals. Graduates can easily adapt to the actual working environment.

10 University of the Visayas The University of the Visayas is an educational institution located at Cebu City, Philippines. It is billed as the first school in the entire province of Cebu who gained a university status.

The best engineers come from the University of the Visayas. Try to check who are the owners and teachers of the best review centers for engineering. They came from this university.

The Contenders
11 Batangas State University

In my opinion, Batangas State University is an excellent choice for those aspiring to enter the engineering field. However, it is crucial to enroll in their Integrated School. The curriculum includes two Mathematics subjects from the second year to the last and two Science subjects from the first to the last year. It is a technology-based curriculum designed for the Engineering and Technical Education for the Special Science High School of Batangas State University. The Integrated School Department ensures that students are well-prepared to face their courses, particularly engineering, as it's designed to help students excel in that field.

Batangas State University-Batangas City (PBMIT) achieved the highest percentage of passing rates, with a 100% pass rate and 76 total passers. Following BSU was UP-Diliman with a 95% passing rate, while Saint Louis University achieved an 89.58% passing rate. Bicol University-Legazpi had a passing average of 84.29%.

The only university outside of Luzon to make it to the Top Performing schools is the Technological University of the Philippines-Visayas, which achieved an 82.29% pass rate. TUP-Visayas ranked fifth among the top performing schools in the recently concluded Mechanical Engineer Board Exam.

12 Polytechnic University of the Philippines

PUP, the country's largest state university in terms of student population, has paved the way for less fortunate students to be granted a college degree at a very affordable tuition fee, which is 12 pesos per unit. This is the cheapest tuition fee in Asia, yet it offers a quality education. Among its achievements was being ranked 3rd best in the world in a contest held in France, and now, participating in the Cyber SEA Games.

PUP is the only university that gives better opportunities 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 continues to offer quality Engineering courses at very affordable fees. And I tell you, it's the resilience of PUP graduates that puts them above the rest in any field of Engineering. They work on the problem while others watch.

13 Adamson University

The Adamson University chemical engineering department has long been internationally recognized as a distinguished and groundbreaking center of research and higher learning. Most of Adamson University's graduates have pursued careers in the private sector in the Middle East, including in petrochemical engineering, medicine, electronic materials engineering, and biomedical research.

Each school year, around 200 freshmen enroll in each engineering program at Adamson University, but only a few of them graduate. Graduates from Adamson University perform competently in their chosen fields because they are well-trained survivors. In addition, alumni are not only skilled, but they also embody the Vincentian values taught to them at Adamson.

Adamson University ensures that their Engineering graduates are not just skilled and sharpened by experiences but also possess core values wherever they go and whatever they do. That's why it is one of the best engineering schools in the Philippines.

14 University of the East

I am currently the Civil and Structural Engineering Lead for the Q2022 World Cup Stadia in Doha, and former President of the Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers - Qatar Chapter, the most active CE organization in the Middle East. The topnotcher of the CE Board Exam in the Middle East, held last September 2016, is a product of PICE-Qatar Review Class and also an alumnus of UE. I'm proud to be a graduate of the University of the East!

I am not a graduate but studied civil engineering, and I am doing great compared to others internationally. UE is excellent in education! Thanks to my very young professor then. I give credit to them all for what I am now.

UE Caloocan will always be in my heart and mind. I learned not only classroom knowledge and theories but also how to survive in the real world of employment. UE engineering graduates are knowledgeable in both theories and practical (hands-on) work.

15 Mindanao State University - Iligan Institute of Technology

Engineering at MSU-IIT started in 1977 with its first batch of graduates in 1982. Initially, only a few took the board exams. Now, it is consistently topping the engineering boards with an almost always 100 percent passing rate. Students here are poor but deserving, coming from the countryside. Graduates mostly work in the vicinity, some abroad, and a few in NCR.

The tuition fee here is 10-20 times cheaper than those of the top 4 schools on this list. Value for money should be included as a factor, in addition to performance in the PRC exams, equipment, quality of education, and readiness for global competition.

Most of the students enrolled at MSU are honor students from high school. Additionally, the instructors here have doctorate degrees. Intelligence is the primary requirement to survive here. Students are trained to solve the most difficult problems.

16 Cebu Institute of Technology

CIT University offers affordable, quality education. Despite its meager resources (low tuition fees), it has managed to deliver quality education. Many of its graduates occupy top positions in private and government sectors, not only in the Philippines but throughout the world. Chances are, wherever there are Filipinos in any part of the world, there will always be a Technologian doing their part to make this world a better place.

Yes, CIT is the best engineering educational institute in the Visayas and Mindanao, particularly in the field of civil engineering. CIT would not have become a university if not for its various excellences achieved through the years. One manifestation is the high passing rate percentage of CIT-U graduates in every PRC engineering and architecture board exam.

17 University of the Philippines - Los Baños

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

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

The best school for engineering!

18 Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila

Most, if not all, of the students of PLM during my time belonged to a meager-income family in Manila. There must always be an edge over those established colleges and universities in terms of learning facilities, engineering equipment, 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 alumnus.

Of course, I'm a graduate of BSCE Batch '88 and am proud of my alma mater. Currently, I am working here in the UAE ME for the past 7 years in an American Program and Project Management Consultancy. The knowledge and training I received from PLM have helped me a lot in securing and maintaining my job in this highly competitive field. Congratulations and thank you to my dear school.

19 University of Batangas

The best engineering school in the whole Philippines!

For me, the University of Batangas is the best engineering school.

Undeniably the best!

20 Far Eastern University - East Asia College

The modern facilities at this school can prepare you for real-life engineering problems when you graduate. With constant development in the curriculum, you can expect the best and structure your college life in an orderly way. As a student of this school, I can guarantee the support of the professors towards their students and their commitment to training them wholeheartedly. FEU may not be a popular choice as an engineering school, but dare I say, it's one of the best.

Recently, FEU-EAC became FEU-Institute of Technology. As of 2014, it is still undergoing facility improvements and developments, such as the construction of a new 17-floor building for FEU-IT students. I think it is not the best engineering school yet, but it has the potential to be, especially since the professors are very professional, which enhances the quality of education.

Proud iTAMARAW. Imagine, Invent, Inspire, be an Innovator. Far Eastern University - Institute of Technology, College of Engineering and Computer Studies, where industry meets academia.

21 Bicol University

Bicol University College of Engineering has an outstanding track record of topnotchers, placers, and passers! It also boasts outstanding alumni who are gainfully employed all over the world, with extraordinary skills and competencies as Engineers. Others are now owners and/or managers of their own construction and engineering agencies.

Bicol University, as a whole, is a premier university in the Bicol region and the only university which has been ISO certified since 2011.

This university may not be outstanding in facilities, not like other universities, but it can give a really strong assurance to its students for a high-quality, not just high-quality but a world-class education. That is why over the past years, it has produced top-notch graduates and successful ones.

I may not be a graduate of this university, but I am still proud. They produce topnotchers not only in the field of engineering but also in other courses. The best school in the Bicol Region.

22 Silliman University

Teachers and professors are not just great and excellent. They always become our parents, brothers, sisters, in short, family. And it is beyond the four walls of the classroom.

Silliman is one of the undisputed schools when it comes to engineering!

Great school that provides whole-person education.

23 National University

It should belong to the top ten engineering schools in the Philippines, as the top one in Sanitary Engineering. In Architecture, NU is recognized as one of the top five universities. Wherever you go in the world in the field of engineering, there are always graduates of NU. Its graduates have founded several engineering schools in the Philippines and established engineering curricula in several colleges. Look at the records of NU's passing rates in Engineering & Architecture.

National University is one of the engineering universities in the Philippines with a rich and well-known tradition in engineering. Look at the board exam results, and you will be amazed by how many topnotchers in engineering and architecture NU has produced. NU's graduates are employed all over the world in technical fields. One of their graduates is Ex-President Fidel Ramos (BSCE) and also a graduate of West Point or the US Military Academy.

24 Negros Oriental State University

NORSU's Mechanical Engineering course is strict but all worth it, with an almost guaranteed passing rate in Board Exams. NORSU has been maintaining its 100 percent passing rate.

NORSU is home to topnotchers, especially in engineering and architecture.

NORSU, for me, is the best school for engineering courses in the Province of Negros Oriental.

25 Bohol Island State University - Tagbilaran City

Bohol Island State University is one of the top engineering schools in the Philippines in terms of board exam passers.

For me, BISU is one of the best engineering schools because it has a newly introduced engineering program, but always maintains a high passing rate, especially in Mechanical Engineering. BISU, keep it up! From a well-known engineering school alumnus in Manila, class of '81.

Does not fail to qualify every year for the top 10 performing schools in the Philippines based on ME and EE board exam results.
