Doctor in Information Technology

The Doctor in Information Technology curriculum of T.I.P. aims to develop the needs of professionals who occupy or shall occupy positions of influence in the Information Technology community to perform fundamental and high-level research professional significance.

The program requires thirty (30) units of coursework, which can be completed in three (3) years, on a semester basis, by a full-time student. The curriculum includes eighteen (18) units of specialization coursework, and twelve (12) units of dissertation. During the first year, students are expected to finish eighteen (18) units of specialization courses including Industry Immersion. These courses are expected to prepare the students to engage in research undertakings related to the student’s choice of area of specialization. The last two (2) years of the program are dedicated to dissertation writing. The dissertation courses shall require presentation and publication in at least one (1) local refereed conference and journal, and one (1) international refereed conference and journal.

Prospective students are information technology professionals, academicians, and industry management level IT practitioners who have likewise completed a master’s degree in IT or any allied master’s degree program, with a substantial research component as demonstrated by a presentation of the research output in the national or international conference. Degrees under education and arts are strictly not considered relevant.

Master in Information Systems

Master’s degree in Information Systems at T.I.P. is developed to give the students strong foundation both in theories and applications needed in satisfying industry-desired competency in the field of Information Systems. MIS students will be able to experience unified approach in acquiring the technical knowledge and skills in addressing and solving organizational or business-related challenges and problems. T.I.P. has lined-up the most qualified master’s and doctorate degree holder professors of the institution.

The curriculum is designed in such a way that the students will develop a balanced mastery in business and technology to deal with the ever-growing and becoming complex information systems. The courses will directly link the learnings of the students to the real world organizational and business scenario, which they can apply to their current and future workplaces as IT professionals and administrators. The curriculum integrates elements like software applications, business laws and ethics, management, decision making, and other technology and business components, which will enable the students in running today’s business. The curriculum also intends for the students or professionals to be technologically up-to-date by offering them specializations which are essential for business administration, communication, and decision support. At the terminal part of their study, students are required to produce their independent study which is expected to be with relevant impact to the IS industry.

Master in Information Technology

Master in Information Technology allows students to apply IT Theories and principles that address real world business opportunities and challenges. Under the guidance of competent practitioner faculty, the students are given sufficient grounding in theory and practice. The course has been designed to make graduates effective professionals. Areas of expertise are systems integration, systems administration, systems planning, systems implementation, and other activities that maintain the integrity and proper functionality of a system and its components.

The curriculum is integrally designed to produce graduates who shall be prepared to excel in positions that involve providing IT solutions. These roles include those of project manager, systems architect, information architect, process analyst, and technology architect. Graduates shall be ready to function in Information Technology positions with the competency, skills, and attitudes necessary for success in the workplace. The curriculum provides students the opportunity for continued career growth and life-long learning as IT professionals.

The students entering this degree program should have had undergraduate or industry preparation that would have exposed them to programming concepts and skills as well as the operating environment of a network system.

Master of Science in Computer Science

Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) emphasizes comprehension and understanding of the principles and concepts needed for designing and formulating new tools for applications development as well as generating new knowledge in the field.

Students entering this degree program must have completed undergraduate courses that provide the mathematical foundations for mathematical logic, calculus, discrete mathematics, data structures, computer programming and data organizations.

Master of Engineering

T.I.P.s’ masters degree program in Engineering aims to capacitate further students in the application of engineering theories and principles while addressing a more expanded context of several real-life business opportunities and challenges in the industry. The program offers advanced research and management cases that may enhance students’ skills apart from their technical expertise. The program shall be facilitated by qualified faculty-practitioners who are competent to provide the students sufficient grounds in theory and practice. It is designed to integrate the theories with project-based researches and actual modeling programs.

The areas of expertise shall include the following:

Master of Engineering with specialization in Chemical Engineering (M.Eng.-ChE)
The Master of Engineering in Chemical Engineering generally focuses on the design, enhancement, and implementation of chemical engineering systems and processes using modern engineering tools and techniques. Students will explore the complementary nature of chemical and biochemical processes in the industry, reactions and thermodynamics, the chemistry and design of pollution control. Students will develop solutions to problems across a variety of technology-based industries.

Master of Engineering with specialization in Computer Engineering (M.Eng.-CpE)
Microelectronics Engineering
System and Network Administration
Embedded Systems

Master of Engineering with specialization in Electrical Engineering (M.Eng.-EE)
Power Engineering

The curriculum itself is integrally designed to produce professional graduates who will be equipped to fulfill the functions/roles of an “Expert” in managing project teams and provide scientific solutions to engineering-related projects. The curriculum has been conceived to provide the required competencies for the students to become professionals for continued career growth and lifelong learning.
