The CSU Engineering and Architecture
The College of
Engineering of the Cagayan State University was conceived in 1981 pursuant to
the national development goal of providing the manpower requirements of the
country, particularly Region 02, in rural development through Science and
Technology. It provides avenues to quality Engineering education to all
students who have the propensity to Mathematics and Science regardless of race,
sex, socio-economic status, religion and political affiliation or ideology.
In 1981, with Dr. Manuel T. Corpuz as the University President and under the pioneer Dean, Eng. Jose Borja, Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering was the lone course offering. In 1988, six years later, under Dean Dominador T. Agatep, Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Engineering were offered. The offering of the latter in Tuguegarao Campus closed the same program in Lallo Campus and Piat Campus. In 1990, two years later, Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Communications Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering. Then in 1997, under Dean Diosdado Dimalanta, Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering followed suit. In 2019, Bachelor of Science in Architecture is offered. The gradual expansion of course offering has made the University more responsive to regional development.
The programs are granted with Certificate of Program Compliance by the Commission on Higher Education in accordance with pertinent provisions of RA 7722, otherwise known as the Higher Education Act of 1994.
The respective curriculum of each program is designed to meet or even exceeded the CHED minimum requirements and the recent development and technologies in the different field of engineering, locally and globally. They are continuously updated to guarantee a certain breadth of knowledge of engineering fields through a set of core courses. This enables the graduates to achieve success in a wide range of career.
Other than instruction as its major thrust, the college engages in research and extension activities in aid of community activities. The college go beyond putting instruction as a benchmark to the needs of the students and the community – research as a thematic instrument and community extension as the application tool.
It engages in various accreditation institutions to oversee the progress and convalescence of its very nature as a learning avenue. All programs of the college are AACCUP accredited.
Deans of the college also includes Engr. Policarpio Mabborang, Engr. Ernesto Marallag, Engr. Buencamino Martin,Dr. Arthur Ibañez and Engr. Audy Quebral.
Today, the College continues to strengthen its thrust to further contend in the millennium trends.
