Top 5 Performing Schools In The Mechanical Engineering Board Exam

Whether you realize it or not, mechanical engineering has made things more efficient and convenient for us. Just think about it!

From home appliances to elevators to car engines (even power plants!), we have our mechanical engineers to thank! While the field’s application has made life easier for us, getting a degree in mechanical engineering is no walk in the park!

Being a certified mechanical engineer requires hard work, analytical and technical skills, and a whole lot of wisdom in choosing the right school! Don’t you just want to get trained in the best school out there? (We know ya do!)

If you feel like this is the right career for you, we recommend these top performing schools in the Mechanical Engineering Licensure Exam. These schools are recognized by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), and we’re pretty sure it can bring out the mechanical engineer in you! Are you ready?


Batangas State University (BSU)

Often referred to as BatStateU, BatSU, or simply BSU (let’s go with the shortest!), this state university was first established as a training school for woodworking. With more than a hundred years of academic excellence, BSU is recognized as the oldest higher institution in Batangas. It has over eleven campuses across the province and launched a new Mabini campus in 2018.

BSU offers a BS Mechanical Engineering degree under the College of Engineering, Architecture, and Fine Arts with a Level lll accreditation from the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP), as well as a Center of Development (COD) recognition from the College of Higher Education (CHED). Isn’t that awesome?
