The ranking of the best civil engineering schools in the Philippines for 2017 has been released, which currently features only 32 of the 269 colleges and universities offering undergraduate programs in civil engineering.

Mapua Institute of Technology-Manila led the list of the top performing schools offering civil engineering undergraduate programs in 2017 with 86.68 percent overall score. University of the Philippines-Diliman followed with 86.39 percent while University of Santo Tomas and De La Salle University ranked third and fourth with 83.78 % and 81.70% overall scores, respectively. University of the Philippines-Los Baños landed fifth with 80.07 percent. Mapua Institute of Technology and De La Salle University are currently Centers of Excellence (COE) for civil engineering as accredited by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) while University of Santo Tomas was accredited as Center of Development (COD). University of the Philippines presently holds neither COE nor COD accreditation status.

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

Best Civil Engineering Schools in the Philippines for 2017

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 civil 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 accredited agencies such as PACUCOA, PAASCU, and AACCUP.

RELATED STORIES:

To rank the schools, we took the weighted passing rates of the two civil 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 civil engineering undergraduate program as other criteria. Note that the passing rates we used this year were adjusted to 60% and above (unlike the PRC’s 80%), and minimum of 30 examinees (unlike the PRC’s 50 minimum examinees).
