The fully online degree programs include computer engineering, electrical engineering, electronics engineering, industrial engineering, computer science, and information Technology or IT, which were approved by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED). 

The online programs are similar to its on-campus counterparts thus the students will get the same quality of education.

This is ideal for working students, and adults who want to finish their bachelor’s degree. 

Likewise, it is applicable to students living outside Metro Manila or in other countries who want to attain the Mapúan education.

Being a digital-ready university, Mapúa will use various online learning platforms where students can access the recorded lectures, references, modules, and assessments anytime.

Some of these learning tools include METIS e-textbooks, Coursera, Wiley Plus, Cengage MindTap, McGraw Connect, Aleks, and Labster, among others.
