History[edit]

Samar State University was established as Samar Trade School in 1912, serving as the laboratory shop of the Samar Provincial High School. It was later converted into a independent secondary trade school, and had its first graduation exercise in 1932. On June 21, 1959, by virtue of Republic Act No.2435, the school was converted to Samar School of Arts and Trades (SSAT), offering a two-year technical curriculum in various vocational areas. It subsequently was given the authority to offer a four-year teacher-education curriculum, Bachelor of Science in Industrial Education (BSIE) and a four-year technical education curriculum, Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology (BSIT).

It expanded its programs to evening classes and extension services, and to masters-level instruction. In 1981, it became one of twenty-three vocational technical institutes in the Philippines to receive the Asian Development Bank of the Philippines-Vocational Technical (ADV-VOC-TECH) counterpart loan of the MECS in the form of equipment for Automotive, Electronics, Civil and Machine Shop Technology.

In 1982, SSAT was converted into the Samar State Polytechnic College, and in 2004, into Samar State University.

In October 1999, it added the Samar Regional School of Fisheries , now the College of Fisheries and Marine Sciences. In 2004, it incorporated the Wright Vocational School in Paranas, Samar.
