Shifting and Transferring

The following rules shall govern the admission to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering of students shifting from within the UP College of Engineering and other units within the UP Diliman Campus, transfer students from other autonomous U.P. units and other schools, and second-degree applicants:

  1. Applicants for shifting, transfer and second-degree will be accepted only for the 1st semester and summer of each school year.
  2. Applicants shall in addition be subjected to existing University and College of Engineering rules on transfer and shifting. The more stringent rules shall apply.
  3. Applicants for shifting and transfer must have passed at least Math 53 (Elementary Analysis I. Functions & their graphs; concepts of limit & continuity; theory of differentiation; derivatives of algebraic & trigonometric functions; theory of integrals; applications of the definite integral.) and Chem 16 (General Chemistry I. Fundamentals of chemistry), or their creditable equivalents.
  4. Shifters and transferees coming from the U.P. system must have a weighted grade average of 2.25, 83.25%, B-, or better for all creditable Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Engineering Science subjects taken. S/he must have no Failing or Conditional grades in any subject, or an outstanding Incomplete in any creditable subject.
  5. Transferees from schools other than U.P. (local or foreign) must have a weighted grade average of 1.5, 91.5%, and/or better for all creditable Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Engineering Science subjects taken. She/he must have no Failing or Conditional grades in any subject, or an outstanding Incomplete in any creditable subject.
  6. For second-degree applicants, the following shall be applied:
    • Second-degree applicants who have earned their first degree from the U.P. College of Engineering must have a weighted grade average of 2.5 or better for all Mathematics, Physics and Engineering Science subjects taken (except ES 1) and EE Service Courses taken. Grades of “4”, “5” and “INC” shall NOT be grounds for disqualification.
    • Second-degree applicants who have earned their first degree from other units of the U.P. System must have a weighted grade average of 2.25 or better for all Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and other creditable equivalent Engineering subjects taken.
    • Second-degree applicants who have earned their first degree from schools other than U.P. (local or foreign), must have a weighted grade average of 1.5, 91.5%, A- or better for all Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and other creditable equivalent Engineering subjects taken.
  7. Applicants satisfying the above minimum requirements shall be ranked according to the following criteria:
    • Total number of creditable units earned, and,
    • Priorities set by the College of Engineering as follows:
      • FIRST priority Second-degree applicants and internal* shiftees
      • SECOND priority Applicants from other U.P. colleges/units
      • THIRD priority Applicants from other local schools, and
      • FOURTH priority Applicants from foreign schools
  8. Applicants shall be admitted based on their ranking, and subject to the availability of slots.
  9. Internal shifting among the three degrees (EE, ECE, CoE) is always approved.
  10. All applicants should address their inquiries and all other transactions regarding shifting and transferring to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering to the Office of the College Secretary.
