Technological Institute of the Philippines

General Information

History

On February 8, 1962, a group of educators headed by Engineer Demetrio A. Quirino Jr. established the TECHNOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF THE PHILIPPINES as a private non-sectarian stock school.

T.I.P. laid down its objectives based on the vision of its founder and chairman Demetrio A. Quirino Jr.: 1) to maintain a high standard of instruction; 2) to bring within the reach of the masses the blessings of higher education; and 3) to cooperate with the government in the implementation of its economic and social amelioration programs.

The School had an initial enrollment of 2,400 which steadily increased, prompting the School to lease other buildings.

In 1967, it set up its main site at 888 G. Puyat St., Quiapo, Manila.

T.I.P. then directed itself toward specialization in the field of technology. In 1977, it offered a two-year associate course in Marine Engineering. In 1980, the Liberal Arts, Education and high school programs were phased out to make way for the school’s new thrust. In 1981, additional buildings were leased to accommodate the student population which already exceeded 23,000.

T.I.P. opened its Quezon City campus in 1983 located at 20th Avenue, Cubao. T.I.P.QC through the years acquired adjacent properties including a frontage along Aurora Boulevard. The Quezon City campus has ten (10) main buildings spread out in the 3.3-hectare site.

Through the years, T.I.P. Manila also acquired ownership of two (2) major sites totaling 2.3 hectares namely, the P. Casal and the Arlegui properties. The P. Casal Campus has three (3) main buildings, one of which is a six-storey building. The Arlegui Campus, on the other hand, also has a six-storey building.

Accreditation is a voluntary, peer-review process that requires programs to undergo comprehensive, periodic evaluations. The evaluations, conducted by teams of volunteer professionals working in industry, government, academe, and private practice within the ABET disciplines; focus on program curricula, faculty, facilities, institutional support, and other important areas. ABET is a not-for-profit organization, owned and operated by its more than 32 professional and technical member societies. An internationally respected organization with some 2,000 volunteers, ABET has set the higher-educational standards in its fields for nearly 80 years. More information about ABET, its member societies, and the evaluation criteria used to accredit programs can be found at www.abet.org.

SEOUL ACCORD ACCREDITATION

In September 2015, Seoul Accord recognizes T.I.P. Manila and T.I.P. Quezon City Computing Programs as a result of the ABET accreditation of these computing programs.

Seoul Accord accreditation is the international authority on quality assurance for education in the computing and IT-related programs. This means these T.I.P. programs are now recognized by the eight signatory countries of the SEOUL ACCORD: Republic of Korea, United States, Australia, United Kingdom, Canada, Hong Kong China, Chinese Taipei, and Japan.

ISO 9001:2008 Certification

T.I.P.’s quality management system is certified to ISO 9001:2008 by Det Norske Veritas – Germanischer Lloyd (DNV-GL) in the provision of all its academic offerings.

This helps ensure that all training and education services consistently meet all customer and applicable statutory, regulatory and accreditation requirements. This also helps address customer satisfaction through the effective and efficient application of the system, continual improvement, and the prevention of nonconformity. T.I.P. is one among a select number of schools in the Philippines which went into ISO certification as early as 15 years ago. To date, it continues to maintain its ISO certification.

Some of the notable components of T.I.P.’s QMS are: a) 5S, a Japanese-inspired good housekeeping program, and b) KAIZEN, a continuous small-steps improvement program.

Nonetheless, there can be no clearer confirmation of effective quality management than the distinction of being benchmarked by one’s peers. Through the years, the institution has hosted several benchmarking visits by presidents, officers, faculty and staff of other institutions of higher learning, and other organizations, bringing to fore its modest contribution to the sharing of effective policies and practices. To date, fifteen (15) institutions and organizations have benchmarked with T.I.P.
