25 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 twenty-five years since its establishment, STI has transcended beyond ICT, beyond education, and beyond the Philippines.
