Mapua Institute of Technology invests a lot on their facilities and equipment. For the past several years, we’ve seen Mapua undergoing many facelifts and equipment acquisition. Students from the Mapua attest to the terrific instructional facilities they have on campus. With a state-of-the art, facilities, learning can never be more exciting and fun!
6. Mapua offers a laid back school environment conducive to learning.
Situated in the walled city of Intramuros, the Mapua Institute of Technology is sure to give you a terrific ambiance. A student of the Mapua remarks, “In Mapua, the ambiance was not stressful at all. Everything is laid back.” Indeed, the Spanish-era architecture and look-and-feel of the campus and the Intramuros is sure to give you a relaxing learning environment.
Mapua is also not keen on imposing too many rules regarding uniform, and they are quite generous when it comes to their student’s study schedule. “We don’t even have to wear uniforms and after our first semester (they are now on the quarterly system), you get to pick your own schedule. Imagine not having to wake up early because you enjoy staying up late at night. Priceless,” a Mapua student writes on a review article about Mapua.
7. Mapua values engineering for the environment. Take pride in the fact that your school-to-be is a champion of green engineering and environment protection.
Did you know that it is Mapua’s official policy to do everything they do for the environment? Enshrined in the core values of the Mapua is the promotion of green engineering.
Its website reads:
“Alongside its pursuit of academic excellence, MIT also endeavors to be part of the solution to the global issue of climate change. MIT has long been an advocate of environment conservation and engineering for the environment, beginning with the opening of its B.S. Environmental and Sanitary Engineering (EnSE) program in 1958, followed by the opening of its Master of Science in Environmental Engineering program in 2001 and Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering program in 2004. Furthermore, the Institute has also included environmental engineering and environmental science courses in all of its engineering and non-engineering programs, respectively. MIT believes that these courses are enough introductions for all the students to understand the real situation of the environment. It is also believed that these courses are sufficient to train them to be able to design, construct, and implement sustainable solutions to environmental problems.”
The Mapua also monitors its carbon footprint – a joint effort by its faculty and its students. The Mapua is also busy with its extension services dedicated to address environmental concerns through education.
