THE UNIVERSITY produced the most number of new civil engineers in the November 2023 civil engineering board examinations, in which 197 Thomasian examinees made the cut. 

The new Thomasian engineers came from a pool of 262 examinees. 

Out of all the schools that had more than 100 examinees, UST logged the highest passing rate at 75.19 percent. 

Other schools with 100 or more successful examinees had passing rates significantly lower than UST’s, including Saint Louis University (174 of 511; 34.05 percent) and Batangas State University, Angilan (183 of 319; 57.37 percent).

UST’s latest passing rate was a significant jump from the 49.12 percent tallied in the April 2023 cycle of the licensure exams. 

Godfrey Correa of Palawan State University, Puerto Princesa snagged the No. 1 spot in the exams with a score of 93.60 percent. 

The University of the Philippines, Diliman was named the top-performing school after 68 of its 69 examinees made the cut, good for a 98.55-percent passing rate. 

Marvin Uy, a former Varsitarian assistant photo editor, was among the successful examinees. 

The national passing rate slightly dipped to 33.26 percent (6,180 of 18,582) from 34.76 percent (5,887 of 16,936) in April. 

The November 2023 licensure exams for civil engineers were conducted from Nov. 17-18.
