Center for Continuing Education and Special Competencies (CCESC)

The Center for Continuing Education and Special Competencies in line with the Mapúa University's mission, aims to provide lifelong learning opportunities that enhance professional skills & develop intellectual potential.

CCESC established in 1986, is the training arm of the University that provides Curriculum Integrated Program (CIP) for the Mapua students and Continuing Professional Education (CPE) for students, alumni and professionals.

CIP are the courses with certifications that are embedded and aligned in the curricula of engineering and non-engineering programs that will prepare the students to become competitive in the industry upon graduation.

CPE are the training programs that are conducted for students, alumni and professionals who would like to enhance and to up to date their special competencies with corresponding continuing professional development (CPD) credit units as per mandatory requirement of the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) in the Philippines for the renewal of Professional Identification Card.

With its vision of becoming a premier center of non-conventional learning, Mapúa CCESC, the only training center with more than 900 short courses, aims to utilize all technological breakthroughs and innovative and state-ofthe-art instruction to raise the level of proficiency and global competitiveness of Mapúa graduates in particular and Filipino Engineering IT professionals in general.

In August 2019, Mapúa CCESC has launched its Microcredential Program wherein majority of Mapúa CCESC short courses are credited as electives with master’s degree unit/s valid for two (2) years. For partnerships, Mapúa CCESC in its capacity building initiatives has partnered with training providers and industry leaders for the delivery of Cisco Networking Academy Program among others.

Mapúa CCESC is also accredited by Pearson VUE, both static and mobile, in providing certification exams for more than 500 certifications such as Microsoft, Cisco, CompTIA, Oracle and many more.
