So far, Mapúa has the most number of ABET-accredited programs in one campus with 11 programs accredited by ABET’s Engineering Accreditation Commission and 3 programs accredited by ABET’s Computing Accreditation Commission. With the accreditation made by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the US-based ABET, recognition is granted to civil engineering degrees in which qualifies graduates of the programs to pursue a more global career in their profession. Furthermore, Mapúa holds the most number of engineering programs that are declared by the Commission on Higher Education.
