On May 18, 2017, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) granted a university status to MAPÚA pursuant to CHED Memorandum Order No. 46, series of 2012 “Policy-standard to Enhance Quality Assurance (QA) in Philippine Higher Education through an Outcomes-based and Typology-based QA.

Recently, MAPÚA has been awarded an overall rating of three stars by the Quacquerelli Symonds (QS) Stars of the United Kingdom, testament to the university’s commitment to delivering high quality education for the global and digital age. MAPÚA was given five stars in three categories: employability, facilities, and social responsibility; and four stars in inclusiveness and teaching.

The MAPÚA CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAM (CEP) was granted accreditation by the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC), with PRC ACCREDITATION NUMBER: 99-266, to hold Continuing Professional Education (CPE) seminars/trainings/workshops for the following professionals:

Architects
Chemical Engineers
Electrical Engineers
Electronics and Communications Engineers
Environmental and Sanitary Engineers
Civil Engineers
Geologists
Industrial Engineers
Mechanical Engineers
Metallurgical Engineers
Mining Engineers

CEP, now called the Center for Continuing Education and Special Competencies (CCESC), was established in 1986 to provide a supplemental program in computer applications to MAPÚA students.

The success of the initial course offerings of the program bolstered CCESC’s resolve to expand its programs by introducing non-conventional and computer-based learning instructions covering advanced courses in engineering, IT related courses (hardware and software applications), and review modules for engineering licensure exams, as well as trainings equivalent to required continuing professional development (CPD) units.

Further, through a successful tie-up with world-leading IT institutions, CCESC has gained accreditation as a training center for the delivery of CISCO Networking Academy Program, CompTIA Academy Program, HP-UX Programs, Microsoft, Macromedia, Autodesk and FESTO and as a testing center for Sylvan-Prometric and Microsoft Office Specialist Program (MOS). CCESC is also accredited by Pearson VUE and CompTIA in providing licensure and certification exams for Microsoft, Cisco, CompTIA, Oracle, HP, GMAC, NCLEX, FINRA, ASCP, DANB and many more.

With its vision of becoming a premier center of non-conventional learning, CCESC aims to utilize all technological breakthroughs and innovative and state-of-the-art instruction to raise the level of proficiency and global-competitiveness of MAPÚA graduates in particular and Filipino IT professionals in general.
