Continuing the Culture of Excellence. The Great FEATI Experience

FEATI University is one of the oldest, greatest and biggest schools in Manila, Philippines that offers a 4-year BS Civil Engineering degree program under the 2018 Curriculum.

The Great FEATI Experience

The FEATI University Civil Engineering Degree Program offers five (5) CHED- authorized specialized tracks, namely:

1. Railway and Transportation Engineering (new) – FEATI University is the first and only school in the Philippines that offers extensive study on Railway Engineering as part of Transportation Engineering. This is aligned with the Philippine government’s thrust to pump up the country’s mass transport infrastructure that includes, among others, railway transport system. Other special courses offered are Airport Facilities Engineering, Ports and Harbor Facilities Engineering, Highway and Bridge Engineering as well as Urban Planning and Engineering.

2. Water Resources Engineering – This track is enhanced by FEATI with focus on River and Flood Control Engineering, Irrigation Engineering and Domestic Water Treatment and Supply Engineering as this affect food security; involves climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction and management; and environment protection and resource conservation. The curriculum also includes solid waste control and management engineering.

3. Geotechnical Engineering – This is the study of subsurface foundation of a structure. FEATI University enhanced this track by incorporating Landfill Waste Management, Ground Improvement and Earth/Ground Related Hazards, and the Corresponding Hazard/Disaster Mitigating and Risk Reduction and Control.

4. Structural Engineering – This is a common track for the first three tracks. This is a specialized course with computer-aided design calculation and detailing courses incorporated in the curriculum. Our faculty/resource persons are officers or members of the Association of Structural Engineers of the Philippines (ASEP) or the American Society of Civil Engineers who are all FEATI Civil Engineering alumni.

5. Construction and Project Management – This is also a common field to all the other four tracks. A Civil Engineer leads an interdisciplinary team of technical men and women in the field of construction. Computer-based programs/software for project scheduling/planning, implementation and monitoring and reporting are part of the curriculum.


The Civil Engineering curriculum of FEATI University is designed and programmed to train the students to be experts in various fields and disciplines for the duration of the program adopting outcomes-based education in achieving learning that endures through time. They are as follows:

1st Year – with manual engineering drawing and computer-aided drafting.

2nd Year – with basic application of mathematics, physics and chemistry to basic civil engineering problems

3rd Year – with the Civil Engineering basic principles and applications of the five specialized tracks and enhanced by research works and OJT on their chosen fields of specialization.

4th Year – the students acquire the expertise through the study of the 5 specialized courses in their chosen fields of specialization.

Review classes in Mathematics, Hydraulics, Geotechnical, Transportation, Design and Construction are offered to students in accordance with the CHED-CMO-prescribed curriculum.

The Great FEATI Partnership

FEATI University provides its students the privileged opportunity to chart their careers in the industry with its strong institutional partners that belong to leading companies in the country.

1. David M. Consunji Inc. (DMCI), Makati Development Corporation (MDC), Engineering Equipment Inc. (EEI) are among the noted Civil Engineering firms for both vertical and horizontal structures. Many of our graduates are employed in these companies. Our undergraduate students who are ready to take their on- the- job-training are also taken as trainees by DMCI and MDC.

2. Owned and managed by FEATI alumni, the following companies are our active partners in OJT and other technical activities.

  1. a. RVN Construction – a general and specialty contractor owned and operated by a FEATI CE alumnus
  2. b. Prompt Managers & Construction Services, Inc. – a project and construction management consultancy and services owned and managed by a FEATI CE alumnus.
  3. c. FACE Builders and Development Corporation (FBDC) – conglomeration of companies owned and operated by FEATI CE alumni; a Design-and-Build contractor.
  4. d. Asian Technicon Managers and Consultants Inc. (ATMCI) – Project Construction and Management Consultant
  5. e. Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) – operation and maintenance of LTR1; along with MTR Academy (Hongkong), LRMC is our newest official industry linkage for our Railway Transportation specialization track.

The Great FEATI Reward

The FEATI student, upon graduation, has limitless opportunities simply because of the FEATI brand of education s/he acquired through the years that focused on the pursuit of academic excellence both in their professional and personal life.

Railways Specialization

This unique degree program has been developed in close coordination with the railway industry, which means that what students will learn is relevant and immediately applicable. The specialization will focus on core civil engineering as well as specialized study on railway infrastructure, including railway management and a railway design project.

Civil Engineering courses in FEATIU are designed to give students as many opportunities as possible in handling challenges or actual civil engineering problems by applying taught materials in design exercises. These interdisciplinary design projects thread through its degree programmes, wherein complexity increases as the course continues. Students may work alongside Mechanical and Electrical Engineers to develop designs for technologies that have impact in the world. During the duration of the degree program or it’s courses, students will be actively involved in developing the specific design and professional skills required by Civil Engineers and will tackle numerous design problems to develop their analytical, technical and decision-making abilities. While studying all the major Civil Engineering subjects, students will also gain experience in a range of railway system issues and disciplines.

FEATI University has excellent links with industry to help Civil Engineering students gain real-world experiences during their study, and to prepare them for entering the workplace as a competent and efficient graduate.
