Batangas State University-Alangilan led the list of the best mechanical engineering schools for 2019 with 88.06 percent overall score, based on overall board exam performance which includes the number of examinees and top-performing examinees and other factors.

The University of Santo Tomas followed with 87.68 percent while the University of the Philippines-Diliman and Mapua University-Manila ranked third and fourth with 86.33 percent and 84.56 percent, respectively. Bulacan State University-Malolos landed fifth with 83.69 percent overall score.

Batangas State University-Alangilan and the University of Santo Tomas are both Centers of Development (CODs) for mechanical engineering, as accredited by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), while the University of the Philippines-Diliman and Mapua University-Manila are accredited as Centers of Excellence (COE) for mechanical engineering.

The Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology earned the sixth place with an 82.50% overall score, while the Technological University of the Philippines-Visayas, garnered the seventh place at 82.37%. The eighth in the ranking was the De La Salle University-Manila at 81.27%, followed by the University of San Carlos, holding the ninth rank at 77.34%. The Ateneo de Davao University placed 10th with a 72.50% overall score.

To determine the best mechanical engineering schools for 2019 we took the weighted average of percentage ratings of examinees who passed the mechanical engineer licensure examinations in February and August this year. Note that the passing rates we used this year were similar to the PRC’s minimum rating of 80%, and a minimum of 10 examinees. Other factors of Local Pulse rankings are accessible here.

We then narrowed the list by incorporating crucial factors, such as the school’s total number of examinees for the year, and top-performing examinees. Finally, we looked at the accreditation status and faculty-student ratio of the schools. What we found after such extensive research is the nation’s best schools to study mechanical engineering, which only featured 40 out of the 183 colleges and universities offering undergraduate programs in mechanical engineering.
