The Philippine Technological Council (or the PTC) is the sole organization recognized by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the body of engineering professionals in the country to be the sole signatory-applicant and representative of the Philippine jurisdiction to the Washington Accord. This recognition mandates PTC as the sole body in the country to accredit engineering programs in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Washington Accord-compliant Certification and Accreditation System for Engineering Education (or CASEE).
For this purpose, PTC created the PTC Accreditation and Certification Board for Engineering and Technology (P-ACBET) which is charged with the mandate to implement the PTC policies, procedures and process for the certification and accreditation of engineering programs. Furthermore, PTC created the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) under the P-ACBET whose main function is to undertake the assessment and evaluation of engineering program and recommends certification and accreditation of the said program to the P-ACBET and to PTC. PTC, consistent with its policy accreditation, provides its criteria for accreditation to the public. These criteria are the basis for decisions on accreditation of engineering programs submitted by higher educational institutions (HEIs). It is the responsibility of HEIs seeking accreditation of an engineering program to clearly demonstrate that the program fulfils or exceeds the criteria stated herein.
The P-ACBET-EAC criteria are intended to promote the continuous quality improvement of an engineering program and it provide thresholds of quality assurance for accreditation. In keeping with the principles of continuous quality improvement, these criteria are subject to change from time to time.
