Best Fisheries Technology Schools in the Philippines for 2019

The ranking of the Best Fisheries Technology Schools in the Philippines for 2019 has been released. Only 6 out of the 89 colleges and universities offering fisheries technology undergraduate programs made the list.

The University of the Philippines Visayas in Iloilo City led the list of the best schools offering fisheries technology undergraduate programs in 2019 with 97.03 percent overall score based on overall board exam performance (70%), program accreditation (20%), and faculty-student ratio (10%). The Iloilo State College of Fisheries-Main followed with 79.50 percent while Mindanao State University-General Santo City and Don Mariano Marcos State University-Sto. Tomas ranked third and fourth with 70.27% and 61.85% overall scores, respectively. Marinduque State College-Gasan landed fifth with a 57.96 percent overall score.

The University of the Philippines Visayas is currently the Center of Excellence (COE) for fisheries as accredited by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) while Iloilo State College of Fisheries-Main is currently the Center of Development (COD).

Northern Negros State College of Science and Technology landed sixth in the list with a 52.50% overall score.

The rankings are based on the results of fisheries technologist licensure examination this year (October) and other factors including level of accreditation and faculty-student ratio to find out which schools offering undergraduate programs in fisheries technology have the most valuable degree programs to produce a batch of examinees with high fisheries technologist licensure examination passing rates.

The ranking uses the same performance indicators as the Local Pulse School Rankings, however, the weightings for the number of examinees were adjusted to reflect programs with a large disparity of the number of examinees. Details on the methodology are discussed here. Other possible factors that are possibly secondary variables in determining the best Philippine schools to study fisheries technology 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.

To rank the schools, we took the passing rates of the fisheries technologist licensure examination 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 fisheries technology 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 a minimum of 10 examinees (unlike the PRC’s 50 minimum examinees).

Read on to see which schools made the list.
