Top Engineering Schools in the Philippines According to Board Exam Passing Rates

There are many types of engineering courses being offered in schools in the Philippines.  However, we have only selected six and came up with a list of top performing schools for each type.  These six engineering courses are Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electronics and Communications Engineering, and Metallurgical Engineering.


After knowing which schools top each field of Engineering, now, let’s find out which school roars the loudest in the entire Engineering department.  To derive this, the averages of each of the top schools were used.  For those schools with no representatives or no such Engineering course offered, the divisor for averaging was adjusted.  Say, UP-Los Banos.  It does not offer ECE, ME or Metallurgical Engineering; hence, the divisor was 3 instead of 6.


It is important to wit that the only school offering all six Engineering courses and does top each field is the Mindanao State University-Iligan.  If we exclude Metallurgical Engineering as it has only three performing schools, then, the only two top schools offering the remaining five fields and top them are Mindanao State University-Iligan and the University of Santo Tomas.

School Engineering Course Ave
UP-Los Banos 74.95 93.67 NCO 97.83 NCO 88.82
UPD 80.40 96.00 68.27 NCO 97.49 85.54
Central Mindanao Univ NCO 65.71 NCO 69.67 100.00 78.46
MSU-Iligan 62.13 72.76 58.36 92.17 96.75 76.43
CAFT-Tagbilaran NR 62.75 NR 65.50 93.67 73.97
DLSU-Manila 77.99 79.67 46.74 NCO 76.43 70.21
Ateneo de Davao 59.58 62.50 47.28 67.00 94.25 66.12
MSU-Marawi 48.33 59.38 65.75 67.67 86.00 65.43

UST 47.22 80.66 51.78 58.07 82.49 64.04
Univ of San Carlos 92.80 60.40 28.16 54.83 67.91 60.82
PLM 59.40 81.08 44.97 43.72 68.60 59.55
Divine Word of Calapan NCO 63.46 50.00 NCO NCO 56.73
TUP-Mla NR 75.59 29.55 36.71 60.23 40.42


NCO =   no course offered
NR  =    no representative

** excluding Metallurgical Eng
** schools performing in Meta Eng are: MSU-Iligan, UP-Diliman & Mapua

  5. The Truth – If you do not use 3 D in structural analysis, your free body diagram is incorrect! Euler’s principle is applied in the XY plane and Hooke’s Law is applied in the XZ plane. Pythagorean Theorem is applied to obtain the resultant yield capacity to compare with the external load for determining factor of safety. The XYZ axes must be rotated to obtain the minimum yield capacity of a given section. The minimum column capacity axis (X-axis) is the diagonal for a rectangular section. For a reinforced concrete reinforcing bars in circular pattern, the minimum column capacity axis (X-axis) is the diameter thru the center of any bar.

    Euler’s principle states that “any section is subjected to an axial load and a moment”. This definition makes every section a column. However, when bending moment is predominant, we call the section a beam. Hooke’s Law states that “stress/strain is proportional to the Young’s modulus of elasticity”.

    Before you reject this information, check the above information with your basic mathematics to derive the required equations and Microsoft Excel to do the numbers in these equations. Do not use the approximate methods from existing literature to avoid being brainwashed by experts using these antiquated methods. We have computers now to do the analytical method that tons of literature will have to be discarded since exact method is now possible. All these years, brilliant minds in engineering have been misled by the NON-ROTATION OF AXES. DO YOUR MATH & STOP COPYING!

    If you are unable to use basic mathematics and rotation of XYZ axes, you may refer to my books published by Universal Publishers in 2004, CRC Press/Taylor and Francis in 2007 and Xlibris in 2012. You may also read in my website at some tips on the correct approach. End this worldwide ignorance and adopt a new paradigm of exactitude.

  9. totoo ba yan..? ang ME at EE ng PSU mataas din ang passing rate…2nd place din ang PSU sa MATH WIZARD sa EE Council (1st place SAN JUAN DE LETRAN)

  10. bakit hindi kasama Mining Engineering….? ang taas ng passing rate ng PALAWAN STATE UNIVERSITY jan…15 out of 15 ang pumasa 5 pa ang pasok sa top 10…95.34% ang passing rate namin

  11. Wow. Walang nagcocomment na taga UPLB? Sawa na mga te. Number 1 ang UPLB. Hindi na katakataka kung bakit naungusan ang UPD, no. 1 ang uplb sa civil eng. At electrical eng. Eh… kung may ageng pa sana . No 1. Din yon. (Claims ay base sa 2013 rankings)

  12. i think screwed up ang metrics na ginamit. paano kung isang school 10 lang nagtake and 9 out of 10 so 90% while isa pang school was 550 out of 1000 so 55%. Mahirap talaga iquantify ang ganito klase sa simpleng metrics na percentages lang

  13. When it comes to engineering, pioneer ang MAPUA diyan, parang sa pagkain yan ang specialty ng MAPUA same thing with Architecture and MAS…

  14. To all: may it be realized that formulating such fallacious statements will always be rejected. Thus, there’s no need to post and express invalid opinions and insights because the empirical data shows.. Further, Central Mindanao University or CMU has it ! (don’t argue 🙂

    • Yeah, you are right. Central Mindanao University is now the leading school when it comes to engineering, imagine for almost 4 successive years they got 100% passing in ME. Proud CMUan here!

  15. ok lng khit wla MAPUA kc sila naman ang kinukuha sa work. lalo na’t ABET accredited na sila. seriously UP, La Salle and MAPUA ang nakakakuha agad ng trabaho.

    • hmpzz…. sila lang na tatanggap… dahil sila lang ang nag-aapply.. bakit galit ang iba if di nakapasok ang skul nila…. since reliable naman ang source na ito…. the top schools are really the bestQ!!!!
