The local government of Muntinlupa has broken ground in Sucat for its engineering college, Colegio de Muntinlupa, envisioned to be one of the leading technological and research institutions in the country.
Mayor Jaime Fresnedi led the groundbreaking ceremony last June 6 at Posadas Avenue, Sucat, together with local officials, national agency execs, and state university professors.
CDM College administrator Dr. Teresita Fortuna, a former Department of Science and Technology director for the National Capital Region, said the soon-to-rise engineering college will provide topnotch education on science and technology from highly-esteemed faculty and integrated training with top-of-the-line industrial equipment.
Some of the faculty members who will be teaching at CDM are Dr. Nathaniel Hermosa, the National Academy of Science and Technology’s Outstanding Young Scientist, 2014 Civil Engineering Licensure Exam Topnotcher Harvey Malolos, and professors from private and state universities, among others.
CDM will initially offer five engineering programs: Bachelor of Science courses in Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.
Muntinlupa residents who will be qualified for CDM programs are set to receive subsidy from the city government through the Muntinlupa Scholarship Program, while non-Muntinlupa residents will be paying full tuition.
