Welcome to

Asian College of Science and Technology (Asian College) is a CHED and TESDA-accredited tertiary educational institution dedicated to the success of its graduates in their chosen field of study. With campuses in Quezon City and Dumaguete, Negros Oriental, Asian College has produced thousands high-quality graduates with globally relevant skills and knowledge for the past 40 years.

History of Asian College

Asian College of Science and Technolgy (Asian College) first came to existence as the Asian Institute of Electronics (AIE), founded in 1972 by Dr. Constancio A. Sia and his wife, Gloria Durano Sia.

Back in the early ‘70s, the Sias were involved in the manufacturing and assembly of stereo systems. In those days, stereos were huge piece of furniture as big as cabinets. The company was called United Audio, Inc. Dr. Sia was no stranger in the manufacturing field, having held positions at companies like Mariwasa Manufacturing Inc., Honda Motor Co., and La Tondena Distillers, Inc.

Because of the constant need for skilled personnel to work at the United Audio manufacturing plant, the couple decided to establish a training center that offered technical and vocational courses. That’s how AIE first began.

Incorporated that same year, AIE tried to fill the demand in high-quality training and education in electronics and technology in the Philippines. It opened its doors to 300 students in 1973, in a few rooms of the Prudential Bank Bldg., in Cubao, Quezon City.

Within 15 years, it managed to expand to new AIE campuses outside Metro Manila. The Baliuag branch was opened in 1988, followed by Dumaguete in 1991, and then Cagayan de Oro City in 1994.Over the years, AIE experienced exceptional growth, with the opening of other campuses in strategic locations across the country: Novaliches, Caloocan, Alabang in National Capital Region; Masinag, Antipolo in Region 4; Baliuag and Cabanatuan in Region 3. Six (6) franchised campuses were subsequently established, namely Carriedo, Manila and Mandaluyong in National Capital Region; Sta Maria, Bulacan and Pampanga in Region 3; Calamba, Laguna in Region 4 and Sorsogon in Region 5.

During its time, AIE gained several honors and awards for its high standard of education and excellent quality of its graduates. AIE graduates consistently emerged as top notchers in various examinations administered by the National Telecommunications Commission. Its students have also won both local and national championships in various Youth Skills Olympics in electronics and computer technology.

In 1993, AIE won the National Championship in the electronics division in the National Youth Skills Olympics sponsored by the National Manpower and Youth Council. The following year, it captured the National Capital Region Championship in the same division and received a Rotary Club award for outstanding community service. After two years, it again emerged champion in the Computer Servicing Category in the Metro Manila Youth Skills Olympics.

In June 1995, AIE was accredited by the Department of Education, Culture and Sport (DECS) as a full-fledged college, precipitating a change in name to Asian College of Science and Technology (ACSAT).

The transition from AIE to ACSAT did not alter the founder’s compassionate vision of operating a “skill and values-oriented educational institution” committed to help in the nation’s development through education using world-class and international standards. It continues with its tradition of training students to acquire adequate knowledge and relevant skills that meet the requirements of business and industry.

ACSAT has expanded its curriculum to offer full degree programs like Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (major in Management, Marketing, and Human Resource Management), Hospitality and Tourism Management, Information Technology, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electronics Engineering and Nursing. The college also offers diploma courses in Health Care Services, Hotel and Restaurant Services and Electronics Computer Technology.
Non-degree programs in the field of Business Process Outsourcing such as Call Center Training, Medical Transcription and 2D Animation are also offered.

Recently, the board of trustees decided to change the short name of the school to “Asian College” in time for its 40th anniversary. The new name ushers in a new era for the school as it strives to continuously evolve with the changing times, not merely catering to science and technology courses, but also focused on developing professionals in the fields of business and management.

Today, Asian College’s main campus is located in Aurora Blvd., Quezon City. The Center is an eight-storey building that provides a conducive learning atmosphere with modern facilities such as air-conditioned classrooms, LCD and overhead projectors, complete library facilities, electronic testing tools and equipment, internet access, audiovisual room, gym, simulated hospital and professional kitchen laboratories. Its faculty and administrative staff are professionals in their fields, well-motivated, and devoted to providing high-quality education.

In the area of science and technology, Asian College is now offering globally-relevant and in-demand courses, strengthening the placement of graduates, and continuously upgrading its facilities, buildings, curricula, learning guides and the roster of faculty members and trainers. These initiatives form part of Asian College’s progression towards university accreditation.

As it celebrates its 40th anniversary, Asian College continues its commitment to academic excellence by consistently producing top-quality graduates in various fields, maintaining high standards of teaching as well as achieving a high rate of graduating students each year. Its journey from a technical-vocational school to a world-class college is far from over, though, as it goes through a rebirth and consolidation that aligns its vision in five main campuses.

This vision is anchored on its philosophy of transforming people’s lives through the provision of quality education, developing leaders in business and industry for the next generation of Filipinos.
