(Metro News) More students to benefit from QCPU courses, says QC official

MANILA, May 31 — Close to 4,000 students will continue to benefit this school year from affordable college education at the Quezon City Polytechnic University (QCPU), city hall officials said on Monday.

At the same time, at least 5,839 other enrollees maybe be granted scholarship through the city government’s Scholarship and Youth Development Program (SYDP).

QCPU and SYDP are among the projects and programs initiated by outgoing Mayor Feliciano Belmonte Jr. for the benefit of low-income families who need government support for the education of their children up to college level.

To date, QCPU, a QC government-owned institution, already has 3,990 enrollees for school year 2010-2011. The figure compared with the previous school year’s enrollment of 3,528, according to QCPU officer-in-charge Salvador Enriquez.

Of this year's enrollees, a total of 2,820 are freshmen, with most of them –- 1,605 — enrolled for the course of Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT).

The enrollees for Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurial Management (BSEM) total 900, and those for Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BSIE) stand at 315.

Technical-vocational education also got an increase in number of enrollees with 690 compared to last year’s 618.

Some of the courses in Tech-Voc at QCPU are Automotive Servicing, Building Wiring Installation, Computer Hardware Servicing, Computer Programming, Computer Secretariat, Consumer Electronics Servicing, Machining and Refrigeration and Aircon Mechanic. These are all accredited courses of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) with National Certificate II, an advance level of accreditation.

Of the 5,839 projected scholars of SYDP, a total of 1,557 will be granted 100 percent scholarship, both degree and tech-voc courses; 2,250 for 50 percent, and 2,032 for 35 percent. (PNA) scs/JCA

    Why not offer mass communication and broadcasting in your school? you have all the opportunity in the world to develop worldclass broadcasters and mass media personnel, since majority of the country’s premier broadcasting companie s are located in your area. A partnership with these broadcasting companies will be of so much advantage to your graduates. An E2E (education to employment) program for your graduates is possible to achieve.
