Many Filipinos were able to successfully launch their careers as engineers and information technology (IT) professionals all over the world, backed by the quality education they received in their home country. As they continue to work hard and thrive abroad, a number of them have already started their own families.
As parents, among the priorities of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) is to ensure their children’s future, and this includes getting them good college education. However, education abroad could be very costly, while sending their children back to the Philippines would entail significant adjustments.
Many prefer to give their children the excellent Filipino education they received, which enabled them to attain their professional and personal goals. With life commitments and location concerns that need to be considered, parents and learners can greatly benefit from schools and academic programs that offer flexibility while supporting their academic development.
Mapúa University, the Philippines’ premier engineering and technological university, addresses the dilemma of OFW parents by expanding the reach of its leading-edge education with its fully online bachelor’s degree programs in engineering and IT, offering the flexibility of “anytime, anywhere” learning.
