About the College of Engineering and Computer Studies


Holy Name University's College of Engineering and Computer Studies (COECS) is the fruit of a union meant to strengthen complementary colleges, the College of Engineering and the College of Computer Studies. Its first milestone was the government recognition no. 209, series of 1969 granted to then Divine Word College of Tagbilaran on August 8, 1969.  Engr. Ismael Masamayor acted as the head of the Engineering Department offering a two year engineering preparatory course under the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS).

The College of Computer Studies, on the other hand, started as the College of Computer Science in the second semester of school year 1997-1998 with Ms. Mariejoe Narca as dean. Formerly a department under then College of Commerce (now, College of Business and Accountancy), it initially offered Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BSCS) program, following the government recognition in 1995. 

In response to the Philippines' massive education reform prompted by the Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013, the individual strengths and accomplishments of the two colleges have been merged into one single unit in SY 2016-2017.  It is now known as the College of Engineering and Computer Studies (COECS).

Cognizant of the critical role of engineering and technology in nation-building, the new college has faced challenges and opportunities in the fields of engineering and information and communication technology education but  it continues to provide an excellent learning environment for molding innovative servant leaders.
