Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE)
The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering program provides combined technical knowledge and skills among students in the field of electricity. The program prepares students for
a professional electrical engineering career who will take leading roles in electrical designs, supervision of electrical installation, operation and maintenance of electrical equipments.
A strong foundation in basic science and mathematics are needed.
Must have at least obtained an integrated (with NSAT) high
school average of 85%
Must have a grade of 85% or higher in Math and Science
Must be qualified in the PUPCET having obtained a rating of
not less than 88%
Must have passed the Electrical Engineering qualifying
interview and aptitude test as implemented by the College of
Electrical Engineering students who intend to continue the third
year course of study are required to successfully complete the first
and second year requirement including the National Service Training
Program (NSTP) and must take the College of Engineering Qualifying
Exam (CEQE) for incoming third year. Students who pass the CEQE may
then pursue higher Electrical Engineering subjects. On the other
hand, a student who failed the CEQE may not be enrolled in higher
major/professional subjects until such time that the student has
passed the exam. Alternatively, in any other case, students who
failed to meet the requirement related to retention guidelines will
be disqualified to pursue the program and dismissed from the
department (CEQE official requirement and guidelines is adopted in

The Department of Electrical Engineering celebrates its 25th year
on the centenary of PUP. The CE-DEE was acknowledged by many
as the University's flagship department together with the other
departments in the College of Engineering at the Polytechnic
University of the Philippines. Here are the highlights of the
growth of the Department from a Technology Course to what and where
it is now.
Through PD 1341, The Philippine College of Commerce was converted
into a chartered state university and accordingly renamed
Polytechnic University of the Philippines. This led to the
broadening of course offerings and the streamlining of the
University's administrative organization. The Faculty of Technology
replaced the Center of Skills and Rural Industries Development
(CSRID) with Professor BanaagVillaflor as the Officer-in-Charge,
offering three ladderized programs in SY 1979-1980 namely the
Bachelor in Computer Engineering Technology (BCET), Bachelor in
Electrical Engineering (BEE), and Bachelor in Electronics
The Institute of Technology was created and Dr. Romulo M. Ricafranca
was designated as Director. Three additional courses were offered:
Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering (BME), Bachelor in Industrial
Communication Engineering (BICE) and Bachelor in Civil Engineering
(BCE). Engr. German A. Padua was appointed Area Chairman for
Professional Engineering and Mr. BanaagVillaflor as Area Chairman
for Non-degree program.
Engr. German A. Padua was appointed Director of the Institute.
During that time the programs in EE and EL is supervised under one
department. On the same year Engr. Jaime San Andres was
appointed as Laboratory Head of the Institute. Among of the
instruments and equipment acquired were a few numbers of DC
Ammeter/Voltmeter, AC Ammeter/Voltmeter, Wattmeter, Multitester,
Oscilloscope, Function Generator (2 units each), and Bench type
Motor/Generator, and shared by ECE, EE, and CoE.
Engr. Jose Bacud chaired the programs in EE and EL.
Bachelor in Industrial Communication Engineering was replaced by
Bachelor in Industrial Engineering and Bachelor in Electronics
Engineering was replaced by Bachelor in Electronics and
Communications Engineering to conform to the PRC Board of
Electronics and Communications Engineers' requirement for licensure
Under the leadership of Dr. Nemesio E. Prudente, the word "Science"
was included in the titles of each degree program. And so BEE
became Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. This is
to align with standards set by the Technical Panel for Engineering
The Institute was renamed College of Engineering and Architecture.
At the same year Engr. Eduardo N. Demdam was appointed as
Chairperson of the Electrical and Electronics and Communications
