College of Engineering, Technology & Architecture

The College of Engineering and Architecture started way back in 1966 and was granted government recognition in 1967 offering initially first year in engineering courses. Five-year undergraduate degree programs in Architecture and in the following engineering disciplines: Civil, Electrical and Mechanical were then opened.

Thereafter the said programs were given each their respective government recognitions to mention, for BS in Civil and BS in Mechanical Engineering in 1972 and BS in Electrical Engineering and BS in Architecture in 1977 respectively.

Later in 1992 it offered another five-year undergraduate program in BS in electronics and communications engineering (now BS in Electronics Engineering). In 2004, the institution was granted further to offer a program in Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering and in 2007 was granted recognition to operate BS in industrial engineering. The College of Computer Studies was merged to the College of Engineering and Architecture (CEA) on Sept. 1, 2021, thus, changing its name to College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA). Except for BS in Computer Engineering, Industrial Engineering, and the Computer Studies programs, all the undergraduate degree disciplines require a government licensure examination by the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC).

Since the opening of the College with its various disciplines it has awarded several degrees in Engineering and Architecture to thousands of graduates. The College has also produced several topnotchers in the various Engineering and Architecture board examinations. Its graduates are now working in diverse industrial and engineering firms both local and abroad, in government service and in the academe.
