BS in Computer Engineering
The BS Computer Engineering 2018 curriculum at MMSU is a four-year program. It is a program that embodies the science and technology of design, development, implementation, maintenance, and integration of software and hardware components in modern computing system and computer-controlled equipment.
The 2018 curriculum was in accordance to the Commission on Higher Education Memorandum Order (CMO) No. 90, s. 2017 and was contents noted by the Commission on Higher Education – Region 1 (CHED-RO1) in July 17, 2018. It contains 181 units with 65 subjects comprising the following course classification: technical courses (128 units) which include: mathematics (15 units), natural/physical sciences (8 units), basic engineering sciences (7 units), allied courses (14 units), and professional courses (75 units); and non-technical courses (53 units) which include: general education courses (24 units), mandated courses (15 units), physical education (8 units), national service training program (6 units).
The 2018 curriculum of the BS Computer Engineering program also offers the following: On-the-Job Training (OJT) program - to provide students the opportunity to combine an excellent education with career related, “hands-on” experience; Seminar and Plant Visit - to let students have an actual visit to the different industries in the Philippines; and Undergraduate Thesis - wherein students have to conduct research study and create a system (hardware & software) in the field of computer engineering to develop their writing and technical skills.
In accordance with the pertinent provisions of Republic Act (RA) No. 7722, otherwise known as the “Higher Education Act of 1994,“ and by virtue of Resolution No. 143-2008 of the Commission EN BANC dated March 24, 2008 and for the purpose of rationalizing the computer engineering education in the country.
The BS Computer Engineering program has a total of 210 credit units. The program comprised of the general education, technical courses, professional courses, allied courses, technical elective courses and on the- job-training. The general education - B courses are in accordance with the requirements of the CHED Memorandum Order No. 59, s. 1996- The New General Education Curriculum (GEC-B). The technical courses comprised of the Mathematics with a total of 26 units, the Natural/Physical Sciences with a total of 12 units and the Basic Engineering Sciences with a total of 21 units. There must be at least 23 professional courses with a total of 70 units and 3 technical elective courses with a total of 9 units. There must be at least 5 allied courses with a total of 19 units.
