College of Engineering
BRIEF HISTORY AND DESCRIPTION
Following the University’s acquisition of the East Central Colleges (ECC) in the City of San Fernando, Pampanga, the College of Engineering was established in 2012 with its initial program offering, Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.
The College, which is unique to the Pampanga Campus, aims to provide a strong engineering education that is guided by outstanding moral values, compassion and a drive towards continuous professional development. It produces highly-skilled and well-trained practitioners who help sustain the economic stability of the country; have a great sense of responsibility and possess excellent servant leadership qualities and uncompromised integrity.
The College of Engineering envisions to be one of the best institutions in engineering education, research development, technology, and innovations.
The College of Engineering is dedicated in producing competent, self-driven, and excellent future leaders imbued with outstanding moral values, social awareness, and aspirations for the nation.
BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN CIVIL ENGINEERING (BSCE)
The Civil Engineering program provides students the knowledge on how to apply the principles of science, mathematics and technology needed in the design, estimate, construction, and maintenance of horizontal and vertical construction projects such as residential housing, high-rise buildings, hospitals, schools, warehouses, malls, bridges, dams, airport, ports/harbors, roads/highways, tunnels, towers, billboards, canals, and water distribution systems.
The program also provides students with necessary skills on how to solve problems associated with flood control, landslides, air and water pollution, earthquake and natural hazards.
