Its former name was Eulogio Rodriguez Vocational High School (ERVHS).

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.

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. Eulogio "Amang" Rodriguez Institute of Science and Technology.
