CCIT

The College of Communication and Information Technology (CCIT) is the University’s provider of quality education along Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and library and information science.

The College traces its foundation in 1987, when the University, under the administration of Dr. Dorotea Campos-Filart, started to offer its first computer diploma program, the One-Year Computer Technology, through an agreement with a private computer college, the Data Center Philippines, Inc. (DCPI). Dr. Milagros R. Remular was then assigned as Coordinator of Computer Education. 

When Dr. Lauro B. Tacbas became the UNP President in 1998, the joint project with DCPI ended, with the University Computer Center taking over the offering of the core and major courses for the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BSCS) and the One-Year Computer Technology (CompTech) programs in the University, as well as the basic computer courses for the majority of degree programs in the University. On June 30, 1999, Dr. Remular was designated as the first Director of the Computer Center. 

The name of the center was later changed into Information Technology (IT) Center.  Then, in June 2007, The IT Center Director, Dr. Remular, in collaboration with Dr. Gilbert R. Arce, worked on the conversion of the center into a college.  On September 6, 2007, the center became the College of Communication and Information Technology (CCIT) by virtue of UNP Board Resolution No. 83. In that same year, the BSCS program was transferred from the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) to CCIT.

In June 2009, a new program was offered in response to the emerging needs and developments in the ICT sector – the Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BS Info Tech). Then in 2017, the college started offering the Bachelor of Library and Information Science or BLIS (previously offered in the College of Teacher Education).  In 2018, the One-Year Computer Technology course was revised into Diploma in Computer Technology.

The College is among the new academic units which were established in the University.  For the past twelve years, the College has continued to carry out its functions and roles along ICT as well as library and information science and improved its curricular programs, per recommendations of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Technical Panels for various disciplines, the Regional Quality Assurance Team (RQAT), and the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities of the Philippines (AACCUP). With the initiatives of the current University President, Dr. Erwin F. Cadorna, the University was able to have all its ICT degree programs receive Certificate of Program Compliance (COPC) this year.

The administration, faculty, and non-teaching personnel of the College have continuously helped the community through their research and development projects and extension programs along ICT and library.   

ICT and Library professionals produced by the University have made notable contributions in the society. Among them hold key positions in the academe, Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), ICT industry, government offices, and library and information sector.  Some have established their own firms which design and develop websites, game and mobile applications, and systems, and others started their own businesses which offer other ICT-related products and services. With the knowledge, skills, attitude, and values they have gained during their stay in the College and the University, UNP-CCIT graduates are expected to do and be their best.
