The Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology traces its beginnings to the wood working classes offered for male pupils in the intermediate grades of the Wright Institute, which opened in 1905 in San Isidro, Nueva Ecija by virtue of Act No. 919.
In 1908, a separate industrial or trade building of the woodworking classes and basic lessons in telegraphy was completed. This marked the beginning of formal classes in vocational training from 1908 to 1927. The passage of Vocational Act 3377 on December 3, 1927 providing for the production of vocational education and establishment of vocational schools paved the way for the opening of the Nueva Ecija Trade School on June 7, 1929.
To meet the increasing demand for vocational education in the whole province, the trade school was transferred to Cabanatuan City on june 7, 1931. Enrollment increased; however, the program was interrupted by the Second World War which broke up in the Pacific in December 1941.
Immediately after the war, the trade school was reopened on September 6, 1945. A rehabilitation program took place. The trade school continued its mission to meet the vocational and manpower need of students coming from Nueva Ecija and the nearby provinces. On June 8, 1948, a course in dressmaking was opened and female students were admitted. A few years later, food trades and cosmetology courses were offered.
On May 8, 1953 the NETS was converted into the Central Luzon School of Arts and Trades (CLSAT) by virtue of Republic Act No. 845. CLSAT was recognized as center of manpower/vocational training for both youth and adults not only in the province but also in the whole Region III.
The series of development continued until the CLSAT was converted into the Central Luzon Polytechnic College (CLPC) by virtue of Republic Act No. 3998 signed by President Diosdado Macapagal on June 18, 1964.
The bill converting the CLPC into the Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology (NEUST) was signed by Speaker Jose de Venecia on February 17, 1998 and by Senate President Neptali Gonzales on Febrruary 19, 1998. It was forwarded to President Fidel V. Ramos on February 24, 1998 and lapsed into law as R.A. No 8612 on March 27, 1998.
At present, the University has six campuses: the Main Campus at the heart of Cabanatuan City; the San Isidro Campus at San Isidro, Nueva Ecija; the Sumacab Campus at Sumacab Este, Cabanatuan City; the Fort Magsaysay Campus at Fort Magsaysay, Palayan City; the Atate Campus at Atate, Palayan City and the new newly integrated CHED-Supervised Institution (Sabati Estate Agricultural College), known as Gabaldon Campus located at Gabaldon, Nueva Ecija.
By offering graduate, undergraduate and short term courses within its areas of specialization and according to its capabilities, NEUST ensures to primarily provide advance instruction, professional training in arts, science, and technology education and other related fields, undertake research and extension services, and provide progressive leadership in these areas.
