DESPITE the University’s failure to be among the top performing schools, the Faculty of Engineering denied allegations of having a lackluster showing in the recent Electrical Engineer (EE) and Chemical Engineer (CHE) Licensure Exam.

“With four out of five examinees passing the April board exams, I can say that the (University), showed a consistent performance,” Engr. Carlito Gutierrez, the outgoing Chair of the EE Department, said.

Gutierrez explained that the University failed to make it in the list of top schools because only five examinees took the board exam.

“The schools recognized in the newspapers as top performing schools were the ones included in the category of having 10 or more examinees and with at least 80 per cent passing percentage,” said Gutierrez.

Gutierrez added that most of their graduates usually take the September board exam that is why the University has less examinees in the recent exam.

“Most of the students who took the April exam were either those who missed the exams last September or those who failed the September exams,” he said.

In the recent exam, 1,357 out of 3,131 examinees passed the Licensure Exam nationwide, with a passing rate of 33 per cent. The University registered its usual 80 per cent passing rate, though it dropped from September’s registered 92 per cent. According to Gutierrez, this was not a problem at all. Leonard James D.
