Our Identity



To be a premier Catholic institution in engineering education, research, and innovation in the Asia-Pacific Region



The Faculty of Engineering is committed to the pursuit of truth and the formation to the pursuit of truth and the formation of technically competent engineers and technologists imbued with Christian values needed for the service of the Church, the nation, and the global community.



  1. To assure the integral formation of its members by promoting a dialogue between faith and science
  2. To cultivate religious values, as well as a sense of professionalism, honesty, and commitment
  3. To promote technical excellence, quality, and productivity
  4. To develop logical and critical thinking through problem solving
  5. To raise the level of concern for the environment while adapting to the rapid technological changes
  6. To inculcate a sense of nationalism and pride in the Filipino
  7. To serve as an instrument in the building of the Church and Society


The UST Faculty of Engineering holds a strong commitment to the pursuit of truth and to the formation of technically competent engineers imbued with Christian values. In line with this commitment, the Faculty pursues three objectives.

First, the Faculty aims to enable the engineering student to achieve maximum professional competence which his aptitude and native intelligence will allow. The UST has spared no expense in procuring adequate instructional facilities as well as in selecting competent faculty staff in order to achieve this.

Second, the Faculty seeks to develop in its students an incorruptible sense of professional ethics and the right social conscience based on a strong faith in God. In this direction, the Faculty is supported by curricula which extend beyond purely technical and engineering courses to include theology, values and ethics.

Third, the Faculty strives to inculcate in its community interest in the natural arts, culture and heritage, and an active concern for the environment. This is manifest in the balanced curriculum content and in the wholesome atmosphere for extra-curricular affairs that the Faculty and the University as a whole can speak of.


Blessed Jordan of Saxony

Feast Day: February 13

Blessed Jordan of Saxony came from a noble German family. He finished his studies at the University of Paris, where he met the newly established Dominican Order founded by St. Dominic de Guzman.

Inspired by Reginald of Orleans, he joined the Order to finally fulfill God’s spiritual calling. Shortly after Saint Dominic’s death on August 6, 1221, he was elected as the Master General of the Order, which was on its sixth year.

Known for his charisma, it was known that the people were never the same again after their encounter with this Dominican Preacher.  Jordan certainly had the gift, the energy, and the ability to challenge one’s thoughts, which encouraged the people to contemplate their existence and understand the Word of the Lord.

Despite his strict disciplinarian values which he was known for, many still saw Blessed Jordan as someone overflowing with kindness. While he was around the town teaching, many people were drawn to him. One of the notable people who became a part of the Order was Albertus Magnus,  who was later on honored as a Doctor of the Church.

On his way to Palestine, he died in a shipwreck in 1357. Blessed Jordan of Saxony was venerated by Pope Leo XII in 1825.
