National Centers of Excellence/Development

As of 2001, the Commission on Higher Education of the Philippines has identified 32 centers of excellence/development (COEs/CODs) in University of the Philippines Diliman, eleven of which can be found in the College of Engineering. (See all UP Diliman Centers of Excellence and Development).

Ten of the eleven COEs/CODs are undergraduate programs in the College, while the eleventh (Information Technology Education) can be considered to be shared between the College's Department of Computer Science and the UP Information Technology Training Center (UP ITTC). University of the Philippines Diliman has no program named "Information Technology", unlike other Philippine universities. The COEs/CODs in the College are as follows:

Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Communications Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Geodetic Engineering, Information Technology Education, Mechanical Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, Mining Engineering.

National Engineering Center

The National Engineering Center (NEC) is a related yet independent unit of the College of Engineering. The NEC is under the jurisdiction of the University of the Philippines System and provides research, consultancy, and continuing education services in the engineering and related fields. Whilst the UP COE is a unit purely dedicated to academic pursuit, the NEC serves industry and government institutions in need of engineering solutions.

The NEC is housed within the Alfredo Juinio Hall (formerly the National Engineering Center Building), located beside UP COE's Melchor Hall along Osmeña Avenue. As of 2006, the College of Engineering Dean, Dr. Rowena Cristina Guevara, also serves as the center's Executive Director.


Five centers formerly within the College of Engineering are now in the jurisdiction of the NEC. However, some of these units still classify themselves as falling under the "COE-NEC" umbrella. This should not come as a surprise, as many NEC employees are also UP COE professors and instructors.

  • Building Research Service
  • National Center for Transportation Studies (NCTS), formerly the Transport Training Center
  • National Hydraulic Research Center (NHRC)
  • Training Center for Applied Geodesy and Photogrammetry (TCAGP)
  • UP Industrial Research Service Center

Course Offerings

  • Professional Engineering Training Division
  • Engineering Enhancement Program

College of Engineering Libraries

The Libraries of the College of Engineering is the repository of books, dissertations, databases, multimedia resources, journals, magazines, and student and faculty researches related to the engineering disciplines being offered by the College. The COE Library envisions itself as the Philippines' National Engineering Library and Information Center in the future.

As of 2006, the Library is located in Melchor Hall along Osmeña Avenue, and is divided into two floors. The relatively cramped space of the Library will be alleviated once part of it transfers to the new Engineering Library and Computer Science (ELCS) Building, where it is slated to occupy the entire lower two floor levels.

The COE Library is an integral part of the University Library's Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC). The Library is also part of the Philippine eLib (Electronic Library) Project.
