The College of Engineering has a long and proud tradition at the National University, having been part of the curriculum since 1925. Today, the College consists of six disciplines: Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Environmental and Sanitary Engineering, which is the flagship among the baccalaureate programs because of the number of the board placers and topnotchers it has produced since 2004.
The Master of Science in Sanitary Engineering program, which is yet the only masteral program offered by the College, is attended also by the graduates of the Bachelor of Science in Environmental and Sanitary Engineering from other universities in the country. Student numbers have grown steadily since 2009 because of the commitment of faculty members to attract more enrollees for the program.
It is rightful to say that quality has also improved since 2009 because of the renewed administrative support and the entry of more qualified faculty members who were attracted by the developments in the College. In 2009, SM Foundation enrolled a number of scholars to the College making the studentry a lot more competitive with other engineering schools.
Starting this school year 2010-2011, twenty (20) students from different parts of our country who want to take B.S. Civil Engineering will enjoy full scholarship grants from New Golden City Builders, a private construction firm involved in the construction of the new buildings of National U. These scholars were selected based on a qualifying exam and an interview by the sponsor.
Recent strategic planning process in the university reaffirmed the College’s strong commitment to research. At present, faculty members are active participants in research consortium projects like the University Belt Consortium projects.
