30 Years of Real-Life Education
Four visionaries saw the increasing demand for computer professionals as an inspiration to set up a training center that will help strengthen the foundation of the then booming industry of information technology (IT).
On August 21, 1983, well-respected entrepreneurs and friends, Augusto C. Lagman, Herman T. Gamboa, Benjamin A. Santos and Edgar H. Sarte, came together to set up Systems Technology Institute – a training center that delivers basic programming education to professionals and students.
Starting with just two IT schools in the early 1980’s, STI now provides ICT-enhanced education to more than 100 campuses here and abroad. Its programs include courses in Information and Communications Technology (ICT), Engineering, Healthcare, Business & Management, Hotel and Restaurant Management, and Education.
STI has expanded its network to provide education at the basic, secondary, and tertiary levels. And with 19 schools offering a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing, STI is one of the largest networks of nursing colleges in the Philippines.
For thirty years since its establishment, STI has transcended beyond ICT, beyond education, and beyond the Philippines.

Enrollment to Employment (E2E) System
Establishing one’s career in today’s competitive environment has become an endless pursuit to most job seekers. Employers too are increasingly having a hard time finding the right person for the job. Too often, there remains a huge gap between the skills required by the industry and what a graduate has learned from school, hence job mismatch arises.
