The Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology (NEUST) (Filipino: Pamantasan ng Nueva Ecija sa Agham at Teknolohiya), is a university located in Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija, Central Luzon, Philippines. The university offers graduate and undergraduate courses in many specialized fields as well as vocational training programs.

The university was established in 1908 and celebrated its centennial year in 2008. It is one of the four 'Knowledge Eagle Universities of Nueva Ecija.'

History[edit]

Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology

The Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology started as a vocational course at the Wright Institute in San Isidro, Nueva Ecija where young Filipinos were trained in woodworking and basic telegraphy, the said vocational course lasted until S.Y. 1927-1928 when the general secondary education course was transferred to Cabanatuan City.

On June 9, 1929 the school was renamed Nueva Ecija Trade School (NETS) in accordance with Vocational Education Act 3377 of 1929. The NETS was based in San Isidro, Nueva Ecija, offering vocational opportunities to the youth of the province. The first and only vocational course being offered then was woodworking. That course was an addition to the existing secondary curriculum inherited from the Wright Institute.

To meet with the increasing demand for vocational education in province, on June 7, 1931 the trade school was transferred to Cabanatuan City. Enrolment increased; however, the program was interrupted in December 1941 by the outbreak of the Second World War in the Pacific.

After the war, the trade school immediately reopened on September 6, 1945 and rehabilitation programs took place. The trade school continued with its mission of meeting the vocational and manpower needs of the students coming from both Nueva Ecija and nearby provinces. On June 8, 1948, a course in dressmaking was opened and for the first time female students were admitted in the school. A few years later, a food and cosmetology course was also offered.

On May 28, 1953, the NETS was converted into the Central Luzon School of Arts and Trades (CLSAT) by the virtue of Republic Act No. 845. CLSAT was recognized as a center of manpower and vocational training for both the youth and the adults not only in the province but also in the whole of Region III. Series of developments continued until the CLSAT was converted into the Central Luzon Polytechnic College (CLPC) by the virtue of Republic Act. No. 3998 which was signed on June 18, 1964 by then President Diosdado Macapagal.

Thirty-four years later, under the leadership of then University President Gemiliano C. Calling, the Bill converting CLPC into NEUST was signed by House Speaker Jose de Venecia on February 19, 1998 and was forwarded to President Fidel V. Ramos on February 24, 1998. The bill lapsed into Law on March 27, 1998 as Republic Act. No. 8612, converting CLPC into a specialized university the Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology.

Today, NEUST is expanding not only in terms of program offerings, number of students and land acquisitions, but also in terms of linkages with local and international entities. As part of the expansion, the University has brought its graduate and undergraduate programs in China and has also hosted the South Korea's Master of Science in Information Technology, which is being offered at NEUST by the Hannam University. Still expanding, NEUST hopes to soon be at the peak of development and excellence.[1]
