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. 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 nine (9) main buildings spread out in the 2.8-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.

Outcomes-based Education

The T.I.P. Implementation of outcomes-based education was driven by the following external entities: 1) Regulatory bodies such as the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), International Maritime Organization (IMO), among others, 2) Local and international accrediting bodies, specifically, the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation (PACUCOA), the Philippine Technological Council-Accreditation and Certification Board for Engineering and Technology - Engineering Accreditation Commission (PTC - ACBET - EAC), and ABET, Inc., 3) International certifying bodies, and 4) Feedback from other external constituents.

It is also guided by existing T.I.P. internal policies and initiatives: 1) The T.I.P. Vision, Mission, Core Values, and Core Competencies, 2) T.I.P. Quality Policy, and 3) Other T.I.P. initiatives that supported the OBE implementation such as a) the T.I.P. Faculty and Staff Development Program, and b) The T.I.P. Student Development Program.

The institutional outcome statement was formulated based on the TIP graduates attributes. Outcomes at the program level and course level were also formulated aligned with institutional outcomes.

The framework which T.I.P. adopted in its OBTL implementation revolves around three important elements: 1) Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs), 2) Teaching and Learning Activities (TLAs) and 3) Assessment Tasks (ATs).

In support of T.I.P.’s outcomes-based education and as a strategy to promote academic excellence, T.I.P. has also embarked on a proactive plan to implement outcomes-based teaching and learning or OBTL in all its academic programs using the City University of Hong Kong OBTL model.

The OBE process is also supported by facilities, management processes and procedures resources and support structures sub-systems.

The results of the assessment and evaluation are used as inputs in the continual improvement of the instructional process specifically on the constructive alignment of ILOs, TLAs, and ATs.

It is expected that the implementation of OBTL as part of T.I.P.’s OBE would hasten the realization of T.I.P.’s mission "to transform students into graduates with full competence in their fields of study and who also possess Filipino values, industry-desired values, and global citizen values."
