Ma. Magdalena V. Gatdula

Dean, College of Engineering


The College of Engineering had its beginning when the five-year civil and mechanical courses were offered in 1970. However, these courses had to be phased out on its third-year operation because of the inadequacy of engineering training facilities and the high cost of operating the said programs.

In 1977, the same courses were again included in the curricular offering and in the following year, the degree of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering was offered.

A significant accomplishment of its graduate marked milestone in 1982 when the first batch of seven graduates of the BS Civil Engineering Course gave the then BCAT a 100 percent passing mark in the Licensure Examination for Civil Engineers. Likewise, three of the four pioneer Mechanical Engineering graduates passed the Licensure Examination for Mechanical Engineers in the same year.

In 1983 the School of Engineer and Architecture (SEAR) was created. Since then, the curricula of the Engineering courses have gone some developments and revisions along the improvement of facilities and continuous development of pool of professionals, dedicated and highly motivated faculty members that the college needs. The number of enrolees has increased every school year.

The College of Engineering gained recognition nationwide when its graduate garnered top places in the Professional Regulation Commission licensure examination. The achievements of engineering undergraduate students as champion in the different regional and national academic quiz competitions held in the different parts of the country also gave way for the institutional to be known.

On December 30,1993, the Bulacan College of Arts and Trades was converted into Bulacan State University through Republic Act 7665 thus, the College of Engineering and Architecture was created.

After the conversion of the institution from college to university in 1993, other courses were added namely: the Bachelor of Science in Electronic and Communication Engineering (BCECE) in 1994, Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (BSCOE) in 1995, Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BSIE) in 1999, Bachelor of Science in Mechatronics Engineering (BSMEE) in 2003, Engineering Graduate Programs with specialization on Civil Computer, Electronics and Communication, Information Technology and Mechanical Engineering in 2006 and Bachelor of Science in manufacturing and Engineering Management (BSMEM) in 2007.


Empower engineering graduates making them responsive to ever changing local and international environment.


The primary thrust of the College of Engineering is to provide instruction and training in the various engineering disciplines reinforced with desirable work attitudes and ideals, leadership skills and work competencies capable of responding to the needs of the region and the demands of global standards.


Engineering Education is primarily concerned in the Arts and Science of Engineering and in their growth and development within the framework of the democratic ideals and spiritual values.
