29 Ranked Best Electronics Engineering Schools in the Philippines for 2018

15,525 views

The ranking of the best electronics engineering schools in the Philippines for 2018 has been released, which currently featured only 29 out of 239 colleges and universities offering undergraduate programs in electronics engineering.

Mapúa University-Manila is ranked first in the country for electronics engineering with 73.0% 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 Center of Excellence (COE) in electronics engineering by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).

University of the Philippines-Diliman made the 2nd rank on the list for 2018, ahead of De La Salle University-Manila at 3rd rank, University of Santo Tomas at 4th rank, and Polytechnic University of the Philippines-Main at 5th.

Rounding out the remaining five places for the first top 10 performing schools are the Ateneo de Manila University in Quezon City at 6th rank, Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila at 7th, Technological University of the Philippines-Main at 8th, Batangas State University-Alangilan at 9th, and Holy Angel University in Angeles City, Pampanga at 10th. De La Salle University and Batangas State University-Alangilan are also presently CHED’s Center of Excellence (COE) in electronics engineering while Ateneo de Manila University and University of Santo Tomas are CHED’s Centers of Development (CODs).

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 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 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 which 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 2018, 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 2018 electronics engineers licensure examination were 60% (unlike the PRC’s 80%), and minimum of 20 examinees (unlike the PRC’s 50 minimum examinees).
