STI College proves utmost dedication in relentlessly providing world-class education through constant education reforms that foster student growth and development. This is reflected through STI’s carefully devised educational programs that hone its students as effective leaders of the global society.
As a response to the demands of the 21st century, STI shifted to an outcome-based approach in education (OBE) to strengthen its commitment in innovative, relevant, and real life education. The OBE is purposefully designed to ensure that all students are armed with the necessary skills, knowledge, and qualities required to meet the challenges of the modern world. With great emphasis on quality education and holistic student experience, STI strives to produce in-demand graduates and maintain its place as a class-leading institution.
“At STI, we hope to be able to continuously provide our students excellent and relevant education that would allow them to become strong players and leaders of society. We are committed to provide knowledge through constant development and delivery of superior learning systems that would make them become globally competitive,” said Peter K. Fernandez, President and COO of STI.
The institution’s fully-equipped facilities, together with its industry-grade simulation laboratories all allow for a more conducive learning and a hands-on and practical training.
To further educate and qualify its students for their respective field of studies, STI consults industry partners to understand their operations, tools, and equipment to be able to recreate them in campus for a more real life simulation. On top of this, STI heavily invests on the extensive training and certification programs of its teachers who can bring out every student’s full potential.
Moreover, STI integrates blended learning through the innovative STI eLearning Management System (eLMS). It is a web-based classroom communication tool that gives teachers and students a two-way platform where they can collaborate, assign and submit homework, and track learning progress among others. Through an online account, students can easily review their notes, lectures, and other multimedia learning materials using their gadgets at their own time wherever they may be.
While ensuring that these world-class standards are being met, STI also engages in projects that would benefit the host and surrounding communities, as the institution is equally conscious of its social responsibilities. From challenging academic events to social competitions, STI holds activities that would further mold its students as well-rounded individuals.
