The Electrical and Electronics Engineering Institute (EEEI) is one of the most established units of the College of Engineering in UP Diliman with a legacy stretching 109 years since its institution in 1910. The EEEI has continually contributed to the development of the electrical, electronics and computer engineering field in the through its undergraduate and graduate program offerings, research and extension work. EEEI transitioned from a Department to an Institute in 2008 to reflect its intent to be a center of excellence in the field of electrical and electronics engineering in Asia. This vision has since been refined to express a more compelling goal to be the National Institute of Electrical, Electronics, and Computer Engineering–internationally recognized, achieving national impact and global significance. 

Investing in the development of an academic personnel complement in the Institute is a key driver to achieve the institutional outcomes that the EEEI has set forth in the domains of student academic formation, leading cutting-edge research, and innovative public service work. 

Relative to foregoing, and to align with the University’s quest for excellence in these same domains the Institute recognizes the strategic importance of supporting the development of an all-PhD faculty personnel. Establishing an academic personnel complement of this caliber will enable the EEEI to deliver world-class academic programs both in the undergraduate and graduate level; pursue high-value and high-impact research to support industry and national development; and contribute to policy-making in the national and international arena. 

Instrumental to the achievement of the goal of forming an all-PhD faculty is the creation of a comprehensive hiring, promotion, and retention policy. The proposals set forth in this document aims to communicate to prospective faculty members the value of earning a doctoral degree at the soonest time while providing a path for faculty members who already possess master’s degree credentials.
