Civil Engineering is the branch of engineering involved in the conceptualization, planning, design, construction, and operation of systems, facilities and infrastructure needed for maintaining and supporting modern civilization. The Institute of Civil Engineering (ICE) is one of the largest and oldest units of the UP College of Engineering; currently it is the first and only institute of Civil Engineering in the country. The Institute of Civil Engineering recently obtained the ASEAN University Network Quality Assurance (AUN-QA) Certificate in November 2013, proving our continuous effort towards international quality of education. In January 2016, UP ICE finally transferred to its permanent home in the UP Institute of Civil Engineering Compound. Undergraduate and graduate classes are now being held in the ICE Main Building. UP ICE is also consistently one of the top performing schools in the Registered Civil Engineer Licensure Examination.
