5. Legal Basis of the Program

In June 1955, The Department of Agricultural Engineering started to offer a 4-year curriculum in Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Engineering (BSAEn). In 1959, after seeing its first batch of graduates, this curricular program was revised into a 5-year BSAEn program.

By virtue of R.A. No. 6067 of 1964, the department was elevated into what is now the College of Engineering, having the mandate of implementing the BSAEn degree program. The program has seen some revisions to address the minimum standards and requirements set by the CHED-Technical Panel in Agricultural Education, including the expected competencies of the graduates of the program and the needs of the industry and other stakeholders.

The latest BSAEn curriculum complies with CHED MEMO No. 37 s. 2007 and was approved during the 183rd meeting of the CLSU Board of Regents on September 14, 2010 through BOR Resolution No. 46-2010 . The AE program was awarded the Level 3 Accreditation by the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP) since September 1, 2008.
