Robby Ching of the De La Salle University-Manila topped the October 2023 chemical engineering boards, with a score of 90 percent. 

UST was the third top producer of new chemical engineers in the cycle, with 61 of its 79 examinees making the cut, behind Saint Louis University (86 passers) and the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman (62 passers).
