Eulogio "Amang" Rodriguez Institute of Science and Technology
(EARIST) was established after the liberation of Manila in 1945. EARIST traces back
its development from that of a vocational high school with only a room at the second
floor of the Mapa High School, nine teachers, a clerk, and 147 students under Mr.
Pantaleon Regala, its principal. Its former name was Eulogio Rodriguez Vocational
High School (ERVHS). EARIST growth and development were made possible via three
Republic Acts and Presidential Decree, to wit: Republic Act 4072, jointly sponsored
by Congressman Ramon D. Bagatsing and Salih Ututalum in 1964, authorized the establishment
of the Technical Education Department without changing the name of the school. It
was headed by a Vocational Director. Republic Act 5088, sponsored by Congressman
Sergio Loyola in 1967, authorized the renaming of ERVHS to Eulogio "Amang" Rodriguez
Memorial School of Arts and Trades (EARMSAT) and signaled its separation from the
Division of City Schools, Manila. It was headed by a Superintendent Republic Act
6595, sponsored by Congressman Joaquin R. Roces in 1972, converted EARMSAT to EARIST
with a President as its head. This made EARIST into a full-pledged college and authorized
the establishment of vocational-technical school branches in each congressional
district of Manila. Presidential Decree 1524, signed by President Ferdinand E. Marcos
on June 11, 1978, converted EARIST into a chartered state college with a Board of
Trustees as its governing body and Dr. Hilario G. Nudas, as its first College President.
