Many overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) have established their careers and flourished as engineers and information technology (IT) professionals abroad with the help of their excellent academic training in the Philippines. Such success has also enabled a good number of them to have their own families on foreign soil.
With their attainment of professional and personal goals, as parents, OFWs understand the value of quality education in ensuring their children’s future, and many would love to give their kids the same excellent education they received back home. However, many may have themselves concerned with the geographical constraint being in a remote country and torn whether to send their children back to the Philippines or not.
Mapúa University, the Philippines’ premier engineering and technological university, has now expanded the reach of its education globally with its fully online bachelor’s degree programs, bringing its world-recognized education closer to Filipino learners abroad.
Mapúa offers six Commission on Higher Education (CHED)-approved fully online undergraduate programs in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Computer Science, and Information Technology.
Offering the same excellent quality of education as their regular on-campus counterparts, these fully online programs provide learners with the flexibility of “anytime, anywhere” education. They feature teaching and learning activities that are designed to be asynchronous, wherein there is no required real-time interaction between students and instructors. Students can access content and coursework at a time that best suits their schedule, regardless of their time zones, with deadlines of submission of assessment tasks and the University’s academic calendar being the only time considerations in these programs.
Furthermore, the flexibility of self-paced learning makes studying not interfere with other things like family life, chore time, or even leisure breaks, which allows students to develop other skills and pursue their passions alongside the academic tasks.
With strong digital capabilities in place, Mapúa facilitates learning in fully online programs with powerful educational technology tools and vast and up-to-date online learning resources through its very own learning management system, Cardinal EDGE.
Despite the remote setup in fully online programs, Mapúa provides student support services through life coaches to guide and assist learners throughout their academic and student life. Life coaches will act as advisers to students on matters related to their fully online studies, such as academic advising and enrollment, career advising and placement opportunities, goal setting, time management and social skills coaching, and other transactions with the University.
The fully online programs follow Mapúa’s quarter system, and students may apply and enroll at any quarter in the academic year.
For years, Mapúa University has been harnessing the potential and power of digital technology in delivering leading-edge education to learners, constantly innovating learning delivery that break geographical, time, and eventual barriers, making it a recognized leader in digital education and online learning in the Philippines and one of the most digital-ready universities in Asia.
