FEATI University (Far Eastern Air Transport Incorporated) is a private non-sectarian co-educational higher education institution with a Catholic orientation established in 1946 in Santa Cruz, Manila, Philippines. FEATI was formerly known as the Far Eastern Aeronautics School.
Dr. Salvador Araneta with his wife Dr. Victoria Lopez- Araneta founded the Far Eastern Air Transport Incorporated (FEATI), the first airline in the Philippines flying the Iloilo-Manila-Hongkong route. The couple’s shared vision to take people to life-changing destinations paved way for a more critical approach in aeronautics, technology, and the sciences.
The couple decided to close the airline company, but kept its name when they founded the FEATI Institute of Technology on March 6, 1946 as a school particularly focused on engineering and technology. Thirteen years later, the school earned university status as granted by the Department of Education with Dr. Victoria Lopez Araneta as the first president of FEATI University.
It currently occupies a 5-hectare campus. FEATI University has successfully produced outstanding alumni who have served in the government, military, diplomatic corps and private sector in the field of engineering, science, technology and commerce.
Today, FEATI University is a non-sectarian co-educational institution with a Catholic orientation. It continues to adhere on the very vision Dr. Salvador and Dr. Victoria Araneta believed in. It offers undergraduate and graduate programs.
