The ranking of the best electronics engineering schools in the Philippines for 2017 has been released, which currently features 23 of the 218 colleges and universities offering undergraduate programs in electronics engineering and electronics and communications engineering.

De La Salle University-Manila led the list of the top electronics engineering schools in 2017 with 72.0 percent. Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology followed with 71.50 percent while University of Santo Tomas and Mapua Institute of Technology-Manila ranked third and fourth with 64.69 percent and 64.0 percent, respectively. University of the Philippines-Diliman landed fifth with 62.49 percent overall score. De La Salle University-Manila, Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology and Mapua Institute of Technology-Manila are currently Centers of Excellence for Electronics Engineering while University of Santo Tomas is accredited as Center of Development, as declared by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED). University of the Philippines-Diliman presently holds neither COE nor COD accreditation status.

Best Electronics Engineering Schools in the Philippines for 2017

The rankings are based on the results of two electronics engineering licensure examinations this year (April and October) plus other factors including level of accreditation and faculty-student ratio to find out which electronics and electronics and communications engineering schools have the most valuable programs to produce batch of examinees with high electronics engineering licensure examination passing rate.

The ranking uses the same performance indicators as the Local Pulse School Rankings, however the weightings for number of examinees were adjusted to reflect programs with less examinees. Details on the methodology are discussed here. Other possible factors which are possibly secondary variables in determining the best Philippine schools to study medicine are included in the disclaimer page. Factors such as international linkages, community involvement, employer reputation, research outputs, and research citations per faculty are not part of this study. These variables are assumed to be correlated to the board exam results.

RELATED STORIES:

To rank the schools, we took the weighted mean of passing rates of two electronics engineering licensure examinations this year, the number of examinees, and top performing examinees as the overall board exam performance, and faculty-student ratio and accreditation status of the ECE program as other criteria.
