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.
