Having a college degree presents a lot of opportunities for one’s career growth. Whether you are a fresh graduate beginning to establish yourself or a working individual who would like to complete a college degree or looking for a career shift, a diploma will give you an edge in your future career.
However, for learners constrained by geography, time, or physical capacity, access and flexibility are key to ensure academic continuity, which will enable their attainment of academic and personal goals.
Mapúa University, the Philippines’ premier engineering and technological school, is meeting the needs of these learners by introducing its fully online bachelor’s degree programs in engineering and information technology.
Mapúa currently 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. With the same excellent quality of education as their regular on-campus counterparts, these fully online programs provide learners anywhere in the world with the flexibility of “anytime, anywhere” education.
These programs feature teaching and learning activities that are designed to be asynchronous, wherein no real-time interaction is required between students and instructors. Learners can access content and coursework at a time that best suits their schedule, with deadlines of submission of assessment tasks and the University’s academic calendar being the only time considerations in these programs. This learning option offered by Mapúa makes it ideal for learners who are remotely in the provinces or outside the country. This option also enables students with limited physical capacity and who might find regular travels to school challenging.
The fully online programs also promote self-paced learning that does not interfere with other commitments like family life, work, chore time, or even leisure breaks, benefiting working individuals who would like to finish college while continuing to earn, and professionals who are seeking another degree in order to shift careers or advance in their current jobs.
With such flexibility, learners are left with deadlines of submission of assessment tasks and the University’s academic calendar as their only time considerations in these programs.
With strong digital capabilities in place, Mapúa facilitates learning in fully online programs with powerful educational technology tools and up-to-date online learning resources through its very own learning management system, Cardinal EDGE.
Fully online students are also provided with close assistance through Mapúa’s life coaches that act as advisers throughout their academic and student life. Life coaches assists 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.
