The ranking of the best mechanical engineering schools in the Philippines for 2017 has been released, which currently features 26 of the 161 colleges and universities offering undergraduate programs in mechanical engineering.
Mapua Institue of Technology-Manila led the list of the top mechanical engineering schools in 2017 with 86.92 percent. Batangas State University-Alangilan followed with 85.75 percent while Saint Louis University and Batangas State University-Batangas City (PBMIT) ranked third and fourth with 84.95 percent and 84.90 percent, respectively. University of the Philippines-Diliman landed fifth with 84.37 percent overall score. These colleges and universities are currently Centers of Excellence for Mechanical Engineering except for Saint Louis University with only Center of Development accreditation status, as declared by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).
The rankings are based on the results of two mechanical engineering licensure examinations this year (March and September) plus other factors including level of accreditation and faculty-student ratio to find out which mechanical engineering schools have the most valuable programs to produce batch of examinees with high 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.
- 23 Best Electronics Engineering Schools in the Philippines for 2017
- 25 Best Medical Schools in the Philippines for 2017
- Top Philippine Architecture Schools in 2017
- 34 Best Electrical Engineering Schools in PH for 2017

- 2017 University Rankings based on Centers of Development/Excellence
To rank the schools, we took the weighted mean of passing rates of two mechanical 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 electronics engineering undergraduate program as other criteria.
Read on to see which schools made the list.
