The Technological Institute of the Philippines (T.I.P.) successfully gained another set of international recognition, this time from the ASEAN University Network – Quality Assurance (AUN-QA) for T.I.P. Manila’s Architecture and Business Administration programs and T.I.P. Quezon City’s Accountancy and Secondary Education programs. The AUN-QA program assessment was fully conducted virtually by a team of AUN-QA assessors last February 8-12, 2021.
“Since 2013, T.I.P.’s 20 engineering and computing programs have enjoyed international validation of their quality from the US-based ABET Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) and Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC). Now, our programs in Accountancy, Architecture, Business Administration, and Secondary Education are also internationally assessed through the AUN-QA system. This latest accomplishment is proof that these four programs are up to par with the educational quality standards in the entire ASEAN region,” commented Dr. Elizabeth Quirino-Lahoz.
During the 5-day virtual assessment, the four programs of T.I.P. were found to have adequately fulfilled the 11 criteria set by AUN-QA. The full implementation of the criteria by T.I.P. was supported by evidence which reflected consistent results by the institution.
The ASEAN University Network is an international organization that promotes cooperation among higher education institutions in the ASEAN region. Its assessment arm is AUN QA, responsible for educational standards and continuous academic improvement of ASEAN schools. AUN QA assessors are composed of chief quality officers appointed by AUN member universities.
Currently, T.I.P. is also an associate member of AUN-QA, and to date, is one of only 16 schools in the Philippines to have such a status with the assessing body.
“This assessment is a value-adding effort done ultimately for the benefit of T.I.P. students. Through their programs’ local and international accreditations, T.I.P. students are ensured that they are getting high-quality education that molds them into well-rounded and comprehensively skilled individuals—ones who can make a difference once they step outside of the classroom and join the workforce or set up their own business,” concluded Dr. Lahoz.
