College of Engineering Architecture and Technology

History

The College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology (CEAT) strives to soar high in era of fierce competition for global competitiveness. CEAT today is at the threshold of a particularly meaningful historical conjuncture of Northwestern University. It started when Associate Surveying was offered as a course in the Engineering Department.

Inspired by the great vision and continuous quest of the incorporator to make Northwestern College a beacon of learning, Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering was offered and was granted Government Recognition on July 1, 1963. This paved the way for the opening of other courses like B. S. Mechanical Engineering and B. S. Electrical Engineering whose Government Recognition were granted on July 6, 1971 and July 4, 1973 respectively.

When Vocational courses were offered in 1967, they were placed under the College of Engineering. These included Auto-diesel Mechanic, Refrigeration and Air-Condition Mechanic and Electronic Servicemen for Radio Receivers.

Fully aware of the demands of times, new courses in Engineering were opened: B. S. Electronics and Communications Engineering and B. S. Computer Engineering in 1993, B.S. Geodetic Engineering and B.S. Architecture in 1997. Anchored on the battle cry of the institution for excellence, Level I Accreditation status was granted in 1992, Level II in 1994, and Level II Re-Accredited status in 1998, making Northwestern University the first Educational Institution in Region I to be granted Level II Accreditation Status in B.S. Civil Engineering, B.S. Mechanical Engineering and B.S. Electrical Engineering.

These achievements inspired CEAT to aspire for higher level. The College is now preparing for a Level III Accreditation and Potential Center of Excellence.
