Application Requirements
  1. An official transcript of records showing the award of the baccalaureate degree in engineering or any related program by a recognized institution of higher learning, and one photocopy of the transcript.

  2. A request of “transfer of credentials” from the Registrar’s Office of the school where the baccalaureate degree was obtained. Mapúa graduates are exempted.

  3. At least two letters of recommendation from previous professors and/or current employers.

  4. Two copies of accomplished application forms with 2” x 2” (identical) pictures.

  5. Additional requirements for international students:
    • For non-native English speakers
      • A score of at least 500 in the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) exam is required.

  6. The application form and all supporting documents shall be forwarded to the Dean of Graduate Studies. An application will not be processed until all required credentials have been received. Applicants are advised to arrange for the transmittal of all documents well ahead of the application deadline.

  7. All first-time applicants are required to pay a non-refundable application fee of P400. For non-resident foreign applicants, the application fee is US$50 payable to Mapúa Institute of Technology in cashier’s check or postal money order.

Note:

  • For BS-MS, Post-Graduate Diploma, and Master’s programs - All candidates for admission shall be subject to approval for acceptance by the Dean of Graduate Studies and the Head of the respective graduate program with a GWA of 2.50 or better, or its equivalent.

  • For Doctoral programs - All candidates for admission shall be subject to approval for acceptance by the Dean of Graduate Studies and the Head of the respective graduate program with a GWA of 2.00 or better, or its equivalent.
Application Deadlines

QUARTER
DEADLINE
First 2nd week of June
Second 2nd week of September
Third 2nd week of December
Fourth 2nd week of March

Late applications may not be reviewed in time for registration.

Diagnostic Test

Applicants for the Master of Engineering Programs are given diagnostic tests in Engineering Mathematics, Computer Fundamentals, and Technical Communications. Those who obtain scores of 70% or better in each test shall be exempted from registering for the equivalent course.

Interview

The Dean of the School of Graduate Studies or the Program Coordinator will conduct an interview with the applicant prior to admission.

Notice of Admission

If qualified, an applicant will receive a letter informing him of his admission to the program. The admission is valid for one year. If the applicant fails to complete any graduate course or a portion of the prescribed program within this period, the acceptance lapses and the student will be subjected to any newly adopted requirement upon application for readmission.

Conditional Admission and Retention for Post-Graduate Diploma and Master’s programs

A graduate student is conditionally admitted if his average in professional courses is below 2.50. He will be dismissed from the program if he fails to get a GWA of 2.00 or higher after completing 12 units of the program. Under this term, the student is not allowed to withdraw any course. The grade of “I” (INCOMPLETE) is equivalent to “4” in the computation of the GWA.
