Technological Institute of the Philippines (TIP)
On February 8, 1962, a group of educators headed by Engineer Demetrio A. Quirino Jr. and Dr. Teresita U. Quirino established the TECHNOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF THE PHILIPPINES as a private non-sectarian stock school.
T.I.P. laid down its objectives based on the vision of its founders: 1) to maintain a high standard of instruction; 2) to bring within the reach of the masses the blessings of higher education; and 3) to cooperate with the government in the implementation of its economic and social amelioration programs.
The School had an initial enrollment of 2,400 which steadily increased.
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, the student population 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 ten (10) main buildings spread out in the 3.3-hectare site.See more
