Dean, College of Technology


In behalf of the entire college of Technology family, I am pleased to introduce our College, with an unexceptional learning environment focusing on producing globally competitive and skilled graduates.

We are proud that our students are highly competitive and motivated in applying their learning to the industry. Our faculty have developed a curriculum that aids the students in gaining advanced knowledge and skills. Also, the college does give importance to instill the students the right work ethics and good values as well as self-confidence. We give emphasis to enhance the potential of each student to excel in different fields of technology.

In this Unit, we offer the following programs; in undergraduate Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology (BS IndTech) formerly Bachelor of Industrial Technology (BIT), and for our graduate programs, we have the Master of Industrial Technology (MIT) and the Master of Technology Education (MTE).

As we expand our programs for the advancement of the students, we welcome to meet opportunities and set standards to build a strong foundation to succeed. This foundation is our key to produce the best graduates: with the high-quality standard of education they deserve. I am looking forward to more years and I know we would prosper because together we will work for it.


The College of Technology (formerly College of Technician Education and Technology) was established in 1983 with a mission to fulfill society’s requirements, that is, to train and develop middle level manpower through technical education geared towards Philippine Industrialization.

It started offering the Diploma of Industrial Technology, a two-year technical program on a pilot basis prior to its adoption the following year. The DIT curriculum was eventually revised in 1986 giving way to the offering of the Diploma of Technology, a three-year technical program. The Bachelor of Industrial Technology (BIT) was subsequently offered in the same year.

In 1990, the college began attuning its program offerings to meet manpower demands of current and emerging occupations at the technical and professional levels. The Bachelor of Industrial Technology (BIT) curriculum was revised to include two options namely: technology teaching and industrial technology. The program made the College to its present position of leadership and influence in technology education in the region.

To meet technological advancement that continuously demand for highly qualified technicians and professionals, the College further honed its capability by offering the Master of Technology in 1995. This was followed by the offering of the Master of Industrial Technology through the Mindanao Advanced Education Project (MAEP) in 1997. In the same year, the Bachelor in Computer Technology was offered to cater to the demands of infotech-related occupations.

To meet the demands of professionals, technologists and instructors of vocational and technology programs, the offering of Master of Vocational Educational was approved by the BOR of this University in June 1999. The College of Technology is located at Obrero Campus, Davao City, occupying a building distinct and separate from the other academic units.

The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology (BS IndTech) of the College of Technology (CT), formerly known as Bachelor of Industrial Technology (BIT), has been offered since 1986 through the adoption of the DO 17 series of 1986, an amendment to MECS Order No. 38, series of 1982. The offering of the program underscores the offering of six (6) different fields of specialization, to wit: Electronics Technology, Electrical Technology, Automotive Technology, Civil Construction Technology, Mechanical Technology, and Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration Technology.

In August of 2017, the program has been frozen as the University prioritized programs with the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Memorandum Order (CMO). The BS IndTech Program, however, was re-offered in 2021 just months before the CHED issued the Certificate of Program Compliance (COPC) to four (4) different fields, namely: Electrical Technology, Electronics Technology, Automotive Technology, and Mechanical Technology.

Further, the BS IndTech program has strengthened the ties of the University as it continually forges a partnership with the industries. These partnerships have impacted the quality learning of the students through multidisciplinary knowledge and skills which are acquired through relevant training under the field of specialization. As a result, graduates of the program are globally competitive and have been making their name in the field.  

To help the University in attaining its vision to become a premier research University in the ASEAN, the BS IndTech Program was designed to produce quality research. The unique type of research produced by the faculty, staff, and students under the Program, has created a big impact in the research area. The Program was able to produce numerous patents and utility models, not to mention those that were already filed. It is also noteworthy that the program faculty, staff, and students are now indulging in social research, apart from developmental research, which the Program usually produced.

To comply with the national standards, the BS IndTech Program underwent several accreditation and audits including the International Standards Organization (ISO) audit which is conducted twice a year, and the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP), Inc. accreditation. The program has passed the Level I AACCUP Accreditation on September 1, 2005. In August 2018, it passed the Level II Accreditation- qualifying the program for Level III on September 1, 2012. Level III Re-accredited status has been granted to the program and Level IV Phase 1 in 2013 and 2019, respectively. And In 2021, the BS IndTech Program has been Certified Level IV by AACCUP, Inc., the first Program in the University to attain the highest accreditation status.



By becoming a premier university in the ASEAN Region, the USEP shall be a center of excellence and development, responsive and adaptive to fast-changing environments, USEP shall also be known as the leading university in the country that fosters innovation and applies knowledge to create value towards social, economic, and technological developments.


USEP shall produce world-class graduates and relevant research and extension through quality education and sustainable resource management.

Particularly, we are committed to:

  • Provide quality education for students to grow in knowledge, promote their well-rounded development, and make them globally competitive in the world of work;
  • Engage in high impact research, not only for knowledge’s sake, but also for its practical benefits to society; and
  • Promote entrepreneurship and industry collaboration.


  • To produce technician graduates with marketable skills and potentials for growth to address the manpower needs of business and industry.
  • To produce occupationally and professionally prepared teachers and specialists in vocational technical education.
  • To engage in production activities that will enhance the development of knowledge, skills and capabilities for entrepreneurial endeavors or self-employment among graduates.
  • To provide professional services to industries, technical and vocational schools, professional organizations and other agencies, in upgrading and developing existing technical and supervisory manpower.
  • To integrate research and extension programs in collaboration with other institutions primarily for the development in the region.
