4 rank Best Aeronautical Engineering Schools in the Philippines for 2019

Best Aeronautical Engineering Schools in the Philippines for 2019

The ranking of the Best Aeronautical Engineering Schools in the Philippines for 2019 has been released, which currently featured only 4 out of the 10 colleges and universities offering undergraduate programs in aeronautical engineering.

The Philippine State College of Aeronautics in Pasay City led for aeronautical engineering with 82.15% overall score after considering their performance in the annual aeronautical engineer licensure examination this year, accreditation status, and faculty-student ratio.

Holy Angel University made the 2nd rank on the list for 2019, ahead of the Feati University at 3rd rank, and WCC Aeronautical and Technological College, Inc.-Binalonan at 4th rank.

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

The ranking uses the same performance indicators as the Local Pulse School Rankings, however, the weightings for a number of examinees were adjusted to reflect programs with fewer examinees. Details on the methodology are discussed here. Other possible factors that are possibly secondary variables in determining the best Philippine schools to study aeronautical 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 of this year’s aeronautical engineer licensure examination, number of examinees, and top performing examinees as the overall board exam performance, and faculty-student ratio and accreditation status of aeronautical engineering as other criteria. Note that the weighted passing rates we used for the November 2019 aeronautical engineer licensure examination were adjusted to 60% and above (unlike the PRC’s 80%), and a minimum of 10 examinees (unlike the PRC’s 50 minimum examinees).

Read on to see which schools made the list.
