At present, the campus’ academic offerings are focused on 3-year technology courses and bachelor’s and masters degree programs.

The intervention of the University in TUP Visayas campus started with the Letter of Instruction (LOI) No. 79 issued by President Ferdinand E.

In 1985, pursuant to TUP Implementing Order No. 85-15, the Visayas Technician Institute was renamed the TUP Visayas campus. Presently, TUP Visayas is situated in Talisay City, Negros Occidental with two branches located in Sagay City and Cadiz City. Currently, the academic offerings of TUP Visayas campus are in the 3-year technology courses, bachelor’s degree, and masters degree in Technology.

The Establishment of TUP

The Technological University of the Philippines (TUP) is the flagship of technology education in the Philippines. Since the establishment of the TUP from a trade school in 1901 to a state university in 1978, it has exercised its tremendous influence in industrial arts, post secondary, vocational-industrial education and in technical and engineering education. It has helped in the professional growth and development of teachers, supervisors and administrators in various educational institutions. Likewise, it has greatly contributed to the supply of skilled manpower requirements in the labor market and industries. At the same time, it has gradually provided the dynamic leadership in conducting applied research and developmental studies for the advancement and transfer of technology, especially in the countryside.

The Technological University of the Philippines was established upon the enactment of Organic Act No. 74 by the Philippine Commission in 1901. TUP was known then as the Manila Trade School (MTS) with the primary intention of developing the dignity of labor. In 1910, MTS was renamed as the Philippine School of Arts and Trades (PSAT). Pursuant to Republic Act 2237 issued on July 17, 1959, PSAT was given the college status and was renamed the Philippine College of Arts and Trades (PCAT). From 1959 to 1978, PCAT pioneered programs in engineering technology and industrial teacher education. By virtue of Presidential Decree No. 1518 issued on July 11, 1978, PCAT was converted into the Technological University of the Philippines.

Presently, TUP is a system comprising of four campuses. The main campus of the University is located in Manila. The three satellite campuses are in Taguig, Cavite, and Visayas. In addition to the four campuses, TUP maintains the Integrated Research and Training Center (IRTC) located in the main campus. The Center was established by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) through a Technical Cooperation in 1982.


The mission of TUP is stated in Section 2 of P.D. No. 1518 as follows:
“The University shall provide higher and advanced vocational, technical, industrial, technological and professional education and training in industries and technology, and in practical arts leading to certificates, diplomas and degrees. It shall provide progressive leadership in applied research, developmental studies in technical, industrial, and technological fields and production using indigenous materials; effect technology transfer in the countryside; and assist in the development of small-and-medium scale industries in identified growth centers.”

Under the present leadership, Dr. Olympio V. Caparas envisions TUP to be a reengineered technological university with cutting-edge technology programs, operating in a high trust environment, and state-of-the art facilities with high quality workfoce.

  2. Angie O. Saldana says:


    How much is the tuition fee for Mechanical Engineering? You have a standard grade for first year?

    What the entrance exam for school year 2013 to 2014? I’m 3rd year now?

    Thank for your prompt and favorable action in this regard.

    • alumni lang ako ng TUP-C, on 2009, tuition fee is aroung 6k including the tuition and other fees.

      regarding the grades, if you are referring yun upon entry pa lang, yes there is.If yun tinutukoy mo naman is kapag student ka na, wala namang grade na dapat i-maintain…straight unless eng’g course. pero pag nakatapos ka ng tech course then you want to pursue it to bachelor’s degree, may quota un grade.
