24 Rank Best Electronics Engineering Schools in the Philippines for 2019

Best Electronics Engineering Schools in the Philippines for 2019 with School Logos

The ranking of the best electronics engineering schools in the Philippines for 2019 has been released, which currently featured only 24 out of 222 colleges and universities offering undergraduate programs in electronics engineering. (READ: Best Electronics Engineering Schools in the Philippines for 2018)

Mapúa University-Manila is still ranked first in the country for electronics engineering with 85.31% overall score based on overall board exam performance (70%), accreditation (20%), and faculty-student ratio (10%). The school is one of the six institutions in the country accredited as the Center of Excellence (COE) in electronics engineering by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).

The University of Santo Tomas made the 2nd rank on the list for 2019 with 84.29% overall score, ahead of De La Salle University-Manila with 81.54% overall score at 3rd rank, the University of the Philippines-Diliman with 78.69% overall score at 4th rank, and the Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology with 76.83% overall score at 5th.

The De La Salle University and the Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology are also presently CHED’s Center of Excellence (COE) in electronics engineering while the University of Santo Tomas is presently CHED’s Center of Development (COD).

Rounding out the remaining five places for the first 10 best schools are the Malayan Colleges Laguna at 6th, the Technological University of the Philippines-Manila at 7th rank, the Polytechnic University of the Philippines-Main at 8th, the Ateneo de Manila University in Quezon City at 9th, and Xavier University (Ateneo de Cagayan) at 10th.

The list is based on the results of this year’s biannual electronics engineers licensure examinations plus other factors including accreditation status of the program and faculty-student ratio to find out which schools offering programs in electronics engineering have the most valuable degree programs to produce a batch of examinees with high electronics engineers licensure examination passing rates.

The ranking uses the same performance indicators as the Local Pulse School Rankings, however, the weightings for the number of examinees were adjusted to reflect programs with fewer examinees. Details on the methodology are discussed here or can be accessed using this page. Other possible factors that are possibly secondary variables in determining the best Philippine schools to study electronics engineering 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 assessed by accrediting agencies such as PACUCOA, PAASCU, AACCUP, and CHEd.

To rank the schools, we took the weighted passing rate average of the biannual electronics engineers licensure examinations in April and October 2019, the number of examinees, and top performing examinees as the overall board exam performance, and faculty-student ratio and accreditation status of the accountancy programs as other criteria. Note that the weighted passing rates we used for 2019 electronics engineers licensure examination were 65% (unlike the PRC’s 80%), and a minimum of 20 examinees (unlike the PRC’s 50 minimum examinees).
