Graduate Degree: MEP-CE


The main objective of the study is to assess the Level of Preparedness of the Aldersgate College-College of Engineering and Technology Department for Accreditation as perceived by the Dean, Faculty, and Staff in relation to Selected Variables.

The descriptive survey method was used in the conduct of the study to depict the actual and present situation of the department on its preparedness for program accreditation. The study was based on the perception of the respondents on the preparedness of the College of Engineering and Technology (CET) department to submit itself for voluntary accreditation. The respondents were composed of the dean, instructors in the department, laboratory supervisors and the head librarian.

The study made use of a documentary analysis with the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) accreditation instrument and the Association of Christian Schools and Colleges-Accrediting Agency Inc. (ACSCU-AAI) accreditation instruments as its basis together with other documents relevant to evaluation and assessment.
