The College of Engineering, Architecture, and Technology started only as a department at the College of Arts and Sciences in June 20, 1984. Back then, it offered only three degree programs and one non-degree program namely BS in Civil Engineering, BS in Electrical Engineering, BS in Mechanical Engineering, and the Certificate in Auto-Diesel Mechanics.

However, due to the high demand for engineering professionals, additional programs were offered and the Department was elevated as a college, the College of Engineering and Technology.

In 1991, with the addition of the BS Architecture in the curricular offerings, the College was renamed as the College of Engineering, Architecture, and Technology (CEAT).

In 1993, curriculum revisions were introduced in all its programs to further strengthen and improve the degree programs offered by the College.
Nevertheless, it was only in 1995 that the Technology courses were ladderized and renamed as Electrical Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology and Civil Engineering Technology. The BS Petroleum Engineering program was also offered in the same year.

At present, the College offers seven (7) degree programs namely the BS in Petroleum Engineering, BS in Civil Engineering, BS in Electrical Engineering, BS in Mechanical Engineering, BS in Architecture, BS in Aeronautical Engineering (as a tie-up with FEATI University), and the recently offered BS in Mining Engineering. Three (3) ladderized technology programs are also offered by the College namely Civil Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering Technology, and Mechanical Engineering Technology.
