The College of Engineering (CEn) started as a department, the Department of Agricultural Engineering offering a secondary Farm Mechanics Course in the then Central Luzon Agricultural School (CLAS).
In June 1955, five years after the school was elevated into the Central Luzon Agricultural College (CLAC), the Department was expanded to include the offering of a 4-year curriculum in Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Engineering (BSAEn). Later in 1959, this curricular program was revised into a 5-year BSAEn program.
When CLAC was converted into what is now the Central Luzon State University (CLSU) through R.A 6067 of 1964, the Department of Agricultural Engineering became the College of Engineering.
Over the long years, the CEn has carved a name for itself. Its graduates have excelled in board examinations for engineering and have occupied key management positions on which they have earned national and international recognition for their outstanding works. All these have contributed to the high reputation of the college.
To date, the CEn offers a variety of degree courses both in the undergraduate and the graduate levels. In order to educate students who want to become professional civil engineers, the CEn also started offering the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree program in 1984. In addition, the CEn began to offer the Bachelor of Science in Information Technology in 2001 to produce graduates with professional competency and knowledge in the field of information technology.
The graduate programs leading to the Master of Sciences and the Doctor of Philosophy in Agricultural Engineering have been offered since 1978 and 1984, respectively.
CEn is one of the 8 colleges in the Central Luzon State University. It has remained an important center of higher learning and scientific research, keeping pace with the University and the national thrusts.
