The Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering Program (BS ECE) of the University of Santo Tomas provides a curriculum that allows the students to have wide and deep knowledge in various fields of the Electronics Engineering discipline. The program develops undergraduate students by enabling them to contribute to technological advancement through research and innovation.

The curriculum is designed to be student-centered and is aligned to meet the Expected Learning Outcomes (ELO) set by the University. Each course in the curriculum is carefully developed based on the Program Educational Objectives (PEO) and Student Outcomes (SO) of the BS ECE Program. The ECE Curriculum provides diverse Outcome-Based Teaching and Learning (OBTL) activities that enable the students to achieve the expected level of global competence and to become Thomasian Engineers who are committed to serve the society with compassion, while being engaged in lifelong learning for continuous professional development.

The UST BS ECE Program offers three (3) specialization tracks, namely: Communications, Microelectronics, and Instrumentation and Control. The Communications track specializes in the area of network design and efficient wireless transmission of multimedia information, while the Microelectronics track specializes in the development of sensors, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), and VLSI devices. Finally, the Instrumentation track specializes in the area of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, and Industrial Automation.

The Faculty of Engineering of the University of Santo Tomas opened the BS Electronics Engineering (BSEIE) program in 1960 and evolved to become BS Electronics and Communications Engineering (BSECE) in the year 1974. In 2008, the official name of the program was changed back to BS Electronics Engineering (BSECE) in compliance with Republic Act 9292 Electronics Engineering Law of 2004.

In 1999, UST Engineering was recognized by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) as Center of Excellence in Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE) Program. In 2009, UST Engineering was recognized by the CHED as Center of Development in ECE.

In 2003, UST Engineering earned Level 1 accreditation for its six engineering programs (including ECE), from the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges, and Universities (PAASCU). Then in 2005, UST Engineering acquired Level II accreditation for its six engineering programs again from PAASCU.

Currently, the ECE program is Level III accredited by the Philippine Association of Accrediting Schools, Colleges, and Universities (PAASCU) until 2018, and is given full accreditation by the Philippine Technological Council (PTC) until 2021. In addition, the UST ECE Program is officially recognized by the Commission on Higher Education as the Center of Development (COD) by virtue of CHED Memorandum Order (CMO) No. 15 Series of 2016 for a period of three years.

The UST ECE department has been constantly improving itself by engaging with International industry partners and academic institutions. Academic staff are professional members and officers of accredited professional organizations such as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), CISCO Core Council of the Philippines, Institute of Electronics Engineers of the Philippines (IECEP), Department of Science and Technology (DOST) – National Research Council of the Philippines (NRCP).

Students of UST ECE are inspired by Thomasian core values, namely, Competence, Compassion, and Commitment. These core values are embedded in the Program Educational Objectives (PEO) and Student Outcomes (SO) of the UST ECE program.
