The UST Faculty of Engineering opened the BS Industrial Engineering (BSIE) program in 1977. In the beginning, the program was directly supervised by then Dean Francisco G. Reyes. By the early 1980s, the Division of IE had been created, and its first Head, Engr. Cielo T. Roque had been appointed. In 1988, the engineering divisions in UST were renamed into departments; the Division of IE, thus, became the Department of IE that year.
Close to four-and-a-half decades from its establishment, the UST BSIE program now holds the recognition of various local and foreign accrediting bodies, relative to IE teaching, research, and services. The Commission on Higher Education (CHED), in 1999, named the UST Faculty of Engineering Center of Development in Industrial Engineering. Accreditation efforts for all UST engineering programs with the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges, and Universities (PAASCU) began in 2002. The BSIE program presently holds Level III accreditation status, received in 2015 from PAASCU. In 2017, the UST BSIE program obtained full accreditation from the Philippine Technological Council (PTC), a provisional signatory of the Washington Accord.
Recently, in 2020, the Industrial Engineering program, together with the five other engineering programs of the University, earned the approval of the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). ABET is the global accreditor of college and university programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology.
The UST Department of Industrial Engineering looks to the future with a strong commitment to the formation of God-fearing and competent Industrial Engineers with a caring heart for others and the environment.
