Background

The Faculty of Engineering of the University of Santo Tomas is the oldest engineering school in the Philippines, established in 1907. The Faculty initially offered a Master of Science in Civil Engineering (MSCE).From the faculty records, it appears that it was only in 1912 when the earliest batch of students were conferred their MSCE degrees. Today, the Faculty offers complete undergraduate programs leading to Bachelor of Science degrees in Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Communications Engineering, Industrial Engineering and IT Courses.

Objectives

The UST Faculty of Engineering holds a strong commitment to the pursuit of truth and to the formation of technically competent engineers imbued with Christian values. In line with this commitment, the Faculty pursues three objectives.

First, the Faculty aims to enable the engineering student to achieve maximum professional competence which his aptitude and native intelligence will allow. The UST has spared no expense in procuring adequate instructional facilities as well as in selecting competent faculty staff in order to achieve this.

Second, the Faculty seeks to develop in its students an incorruptible sense of professional ethics and the right social conscience based on a strong faith in God. In this direction, the Faculty is supported by curricula which extend beyond purely technical and engineering courses to include theology, values and ethics.

Third, the Faculty strives to inculcate in its community interest in the natural arts, culture and heritage, and an active concern for the environment. This is manifest in the balanced curriculum content and in the wholesome atmosphere for extracurricular affairs that the Faculty and the University as a whole can speak of.History
