The Top Ten
1 AMA University

AMA is the pioneer and the first computer school in Asia, not just here in the Philippines. AMA is known in the Middle East for its own high-technology, advanced computers.

AMA is the best. Best in programming, best in web design and robotics. They also have high-tech computers.

I think AMA is also competitive. After many years, AMA has just proven they've got what it takes, especially in the CS field.

2 FEU Institute of Technology

They provide the best facilities and professors for computer science and IT. You can also take OJT programs abroad. I think they are the top computer science school in the Philippines today. Most of their alumni are working in top companies here in the Philippines as well.

FEU Tech has a powerful CS program. It pushes you to be the best, plus they have Mac PCs! I'm glad I enrolled in this school, for they are the top IT school in Manila and have already produced successful alumni.

I have read a lot of good feedback from many people about FEU.

3 Mapúa University

Although Mapua is known for their engineering courses, they still prove that they can have the spotlight on IT courses. Plus, they are ABET accredited, which makes them top 3.

4 Polytechnic University of the Philippines

PUP builds a strong CS foundation in its students, along with a quality curriculum and research-driven instruction. The school, though lacking in necessary facilities, still performs great in CS.

PUP has poor facilities but is rich in CS education. They have smart professors who give specific instruction. Great school!


IAcademy is getting known in the Philippines. They have a nice facility and awesome people. I know them mostly for 3D animation courses.

IAcademy is a specialized institution with over seventeen years of dedication to training Game Changers in Computing, Business and Liberal Arts, and Design programs.

IAcademy has the best facilities and professors who are practitioners in the industry.

6 Ateneo de Manila University

Ateneo has a strong CS program too, though I don't think they've proven enough to have their spotlight on that field. However, Ateneo is certainly working hard to make them number one in all course types.

7 De La Salle University

The DLSU College of Computer Studies (CCS) is an educational institution committed to its three-pronged vision of continually sharing knowledge and expertise through teaching, engaging in computer science research and information technology product development, and rendering service to communities in need.

CCS upholds the tradition of excellence embodied by Lasallian education. Through its intensive undergraduate programs that emphasize actual implementation of theories in a project-oriented and real-world environment, the College develops experts in computer science, computer engineering, and information technology, equipping its students to become tomorrow's leaders in industry, academe, and government.

8 Technological Institute of the Philippines

TIP is rising in the Philippines. They're also ABET accredited, which makes them a nice choice.

9 Adamson University

Multi-career path opportunities for those graduates in the computer courses.

A very good and diverse curriculum, I must say.

Superb! After school, you're guaranteed a job.

10 University of Makati

I studied here. It's quite a competitive school because my blockmates are passionate about programming. Professors don't encourage spoonfeeding and provide credible sources to look for answers and to practice the art of programming.

University of Makati might just be a public, locally-funded university, but the CS programs here are very competitive. Proud student here.

I study here. It has nice facilities for a state university.
