Research was Mapua’s strongest suit in the WUR which ranked 1139. It published a total of 1,694 SCOPUS-indexed, internationally-vetted research papers since 2017, making it the 2nd highest in research among the four Philippine THE-listed universities. 179 were published by faculty members, while students co-authored 1,462.

  • Electrical, Electronics, and Computer Engineering (648)
  • Industrial Engineering (334)
  • Chemical, Biological, Environmental, and Material Sciences and Engineering (226)
  • Information Technology (186)

Mapua also performed remarkably in the global ranking’s other criteria, which included:

  • Citations (Rank 1703)
  • Industry Income (Rank 1716)
  • Teaching (Rank 1757)
  • International Outlook (Rank 1771)

Vea said that the global ranking provides indisputable evidence of the quality of a Mapua education. With this stamp of quality, graduates and alumni benefits in terms of getting better employment opportunities and the best chances of being admitted to graduate schools.

Better things are indeed to happen in the coming years for Mapua.

Earlier in 2021, Mapua introduced the Arts and Design track for its Senior High School which focuses on graphic design, animation and video production, screenwriting, film production process, visual content process, digital journalism, and audio production.

With its curriculum’s focus on the creative skills and career opportunities, the Arts and Design track is aligned with the Mapua college programs in Advertising Design, Broadcast Media, Digital Film, Digital Journalism, and Multimedia arts, all offered in the University’s School of Media Studies.
The Arts and Design track is in addition to Mapua Senior High School’s offering of Academic track, which includes the following strands: Accountancy, Business, and Management (ABM); General Academic Strand (GAS); Humanities and Social Sciences (HUMSS); and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

Mapua also introduced HyFlex (hybrid flexible) classes as an answer to the ongoing health risks brought about by the pandemic. This provide learners greater flexibility than ordinary hybrid classes by giving students options and greater access to both on site and online classes synchronous or asynchronously.

Earlier this year, Mapua University has formally announced its partnership with Arizona State University (ASU) for a joint initiative to expand the access of Filipino students to high quality international education in both business and health sciences through the ASU-Cintana Alliance.

Mapua, a premier engineering and technological university in the Philippines which has received the QS 4-Stars Ranking in Asia is the one and only school in the country to be recognized as a member of the ASU-Cintana Alliance.

Mapua University also hinted future collaborations with other international schools.

With its new international status, the country’s leading engineering and technological school is further challenged to improvement of its curriculum, faculty, teaching methodologies, and research arm.
