The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BSIE) is a five-year
baccalaureate degree program offered in the College of Engineering (CE).
Industrial Engineering as a name is used in industry, commerce, and
government maybe the broadcast of all the modern management functions that
if consists of all engineering and management control activities that cannot
be clearly designated as a part of other engineering or accounting
functions. It is a large umbrella that includes a wide variety of task
established for the purpose of designing, implementing and maintaining
management system for effective operations.
The department prognosticates its graduates as professionals with high
level of competitive in all facets of production/manufacturing systems,
operation research, human factor, time and motion, and production design.
Moreover, the graduates will primarily concerned with the design,
improvement and installation of the integrated systems of man, materials,
capital and equipment, drawing upon knowledge and skills from mathematical,
physical and social sciences.
The course likewise deals with human relations, management, system and
design, cost estimates, and financial analysis.
The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BSIE) curriculum
consists of total of 214 units, 70 units of which complies by general
education courses; 40 units for allied and engineering sciences courses; 85
units for IE professional courses miscellany of 8 units and 12 units dealing
with one of the three specialization of the IE profession. These are
Production Engineering, Operations Research, Analysis, Organization and
Social Sciences and Humanities courses, on the other hand, serve as
catalysts to the development of well-rounded graduates.
Industrial 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 Industrial
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 this program).
Other retention requirement re those stated at PUP Student Handbook.
These are guidelines in retention and academic delinquencies, students who
failed to meet this University academic standing requirement can be
subjected to warning, reduction in load, probation and dismissal from the
The students must finish the requirement of the Industrial Engineering
program within seven and half years or a period equivalent to one-and-a-half
times the normal length of the prescribed residences for the College of

When the Philippine College of Commerce was transformed into the
Polytechnic University of the Philippines in 1978, a Faculty of Technology
was created and offered Bachelor in Technology Courses. This office was
converted into the Institute of Technology in 1980 and with Dr. Romulo M.
Ricafranca as Director, the Bachelor of Industrial Communication Engineering
(BICE) was offered together with the other engineering degrees.
In 1985, Engr. German A. Padua was appointed Director of the Institute.
It was in that year when a proposal came from an IE Faculty Engr. Ma.
Theresa A. Bongulto to revise the BICE program and retitled it into Bachelor
in Industrial Engineering (BIE).
When Dr. Nemesio E. Prudente became the President of PUP in 1986, he
included the word science in each Engineering program which made BIE into
what we call now Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BSIE).
PUP IE Developments
1986April, the first Batch of Bachelor of Industrial
Communication Engineering (BICE) graduates. There were about 35 students who
equivalent to one (1) section who completed the course.
It was also in 1986 when the word "Science" was included in the program
title under the Institute Dean. At this time the freshmen enrollees was
increased to two (2) sections. There were seven (7) part-time faculty
teaching the subjects of the course.
Formal membership of PUP-Industrial Engineering to the Association of
Management and Industrial Engineering of the Philippines in August, 1986.
1987First formal election of AMIEP-PUP set of
officers. This was also the time when the institute assigned a faculty
adviser for Industrial Engineering in person of Engr. Ma. Theresa Bongulto.
The Institute of technology was raised to a college level and named College
of Engineering and Architecture.
1988The creation of Industrial Engineering Learning
Center where the AMIEP office and IE Mini Library was installed.
1989The first batch of graduates of about 60
students holding the degree in Bachelor of Science in Industrial
Engineering. The Institute of Technology was sub-divided into three
departments merging the Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Engineering
into one department headed by Engr. Dante Gedaria. Curriculum revision was
made possible to augment the academic requirements of the students.
It was also in mid-1989 when the College of Engineering and Architecture
engage in an international Linkage with Japan International Cooperating
Agency (JICA). The Industrial Engineering formally submitted proposals on
the said project regarding equipment and instructional materials.
1990A new chairperson was appointed to head the
ME-IE Department in the person of Engr. Froilan Gaerlan.
1991The separation of Industrial Engineering
Department from Mechanical Engineering Department. The IE Department was
headed by Engr. Froilan Gaerlan with three (3) regular faculties and four
(4) part-time faculty members. At this time, the department made a
remarkable increase in the number of enrollees which made it possible to
increase also the number of sections from two (2) sections to three (3)
sections per level.
1992A new building was provided for the College of
Engineering and Architecture through the JICA Project. The Industrial
Engineering Department together with other Engineering courses occupied the
building during this year. The IE office was located at the second floor of
the building. Three laboratories were provided for the department headed by
the IE Laboratory Head in the person of Prof. Adelio O. Sulit namely,
Printing Technology Laboratory, Manufacturing Laboratory, and Time & Motion
Laboratory. All the laboratories were fully equipped with high-tech machines
and equipment necessary to facilitate Engineering subjects.
The department Chairperson was Engr. Herman Cilindro. At this period,
many faculties were appointed regular and the number of students continued
to increase as well as the number of graduates.
1993A Technical Panel for Engineering and
Architecture visited the PUP-CEA and the Institution was remarkably
commended for an excellent program. The Industrial Engineering with the
other programs of the College voluntarily submitted to AACCUP accreditation
to show its commitment tio quality education.
1994The department was headed by Dr. Proculo Hugo
and prepared for the preliminary visit of the AACCUP team.
1997The Industrial Engineering together with the
other Engineering Programs of PUP attained the Level 1 status by the AACCUP.
The AACCUP presentation was led by the newly appointed Chairperson of the
department in the person of Engr. Ma. Theresa Bongulto.
2000Industrial Engineering is about to undergo the
Level II accreditation by AACUP. And in December, 2000, the AACCUP awarded
the Certificate of Confirmation for Level II accreditation status for PUP
Industrial Engineering Program. And it will enjoy the status from 1999 up to
2002Newly appointed Chairperson of the department
was in the person of Prof. Adelio Sulit who assumed office January, 2002,
likewise, appointment of Engr. Carlito Quines as IE Laboratory Head was in
April of the same year. Preparation for the AACCUP first resurvey visit is
in progress. And it was also in 2002 when the first grand Alumni Homecoming
of the Industrial Engineering was held.
2003AACCUP first resurvey visit to assess the
Program of the Industrial Engineering department together with the other
programs of the College.
