MASTER OF ENGINEERING

Introduction
The Master of Engineering Program was offered in June, 1995 under the flagship of the DOST-ESEP I
project to upgrade the engineering education in the Philippines. It was conceived by the consortium of DOST-ESEP
network schools in the Visayas and Mindanao. These schools are Central Philippine University for Western Visayas,
University of San Carlos for Central and Eastern Visayas, MSU-Iligan Institute of Technology for Northern
Mindanao, and Ateneo de Davao and University of Mindanao for Southern Mindanao.
Since its founding, the program has helped increase the number of engineering faculty members with
advanced degrees. A number of graduates have been conferred the degree with specialization in such fields as
Ceramics Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Communications Engineering, Environmental
Engineering, Material Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Metallurgical Engineering.

Objectives
The MOE program is offered with the following objectives:
1.

to upgrade engineering education in the Visayas and Mindanao by making the program accessible to
faculty members of engineering schools; and

2.

to provide engineering practitioners advanced tools to cope with the increasing sophistication of
processes and system in industries.
