History

Early Activities

The Institute was founded on January 25, 1925 by Don Tomás Mapúa, a graduate of Cornell University and the first registered Filipino architect. At first, the Institute only provided Architecture and Civil Engineering programs for students that work by day and study at night. There were only 80 students and a dozen of faculty members at that time and classes were held in a rented commercial building in Carriedo Street in Quiapo, Manila. In 1928, the Mapúa High School was established and on 1930, Mapúa joined the National Collegiate Athletic Association as the Mapua Cardinals. Cornell University is a private research university located on the East Hill of Ithaca, New York. ... Quiapo is a well known part of old Manila and a place which offers cheap prices on items ranging from electronics to magic amulets. ... The NCAA logo. ... The Mapua Cardinals are the National Collegiate Athletic Association (Philippines) basketball team of the Mapua Institute of Technology. ...


World War II and Afterwar Development

During World War II, the Institute was used as garrison by the Japanese forces during their occupation of Manila at the time and all classes were suspended. The Institute would continue to suffer throughout the war as the effort of the Institute to continue the studies of the students were suspended and Senior students were forced to prematurely graduate. In 1944 the Institute suffered total destruction at the hands of the war. As a part of the rehabilitation program, the former De Luxe Fashion School in Doroteo Jose was acquired and housed the high school department in 1948. In 1951, the Mapúa family acquired a piece of land from the La Corporacion Fransicana where the present Intramuros Campus stands. The campus opened at 1956 while all the structural constructions were finished in 1963. All college programs were transferred from the Doroteo Jose campus to the Intramuros Campus in 1973. Don Tomás Mapúa passed away on December 22, 1965 and his son Don Óscar Mapúa took over the presidency until his death in 1998.

The Yuchengco Administration

Don Óscar Mapúa's son, Architect Oscar Mapúa Jr. took over his duties until December 1999, when the Mapúa family passed the institute to the Yuchengco Group of Companies (YGC) headed by Ambassador Alfonso T. Yuchengco and appointed Dr. Reynaldo B. Vea as president. In 2002, due to space constraints on the Intramuros Campus, the old RCBC Building in Sen. Gil Puyat Ave. in Makati City was bought and converted into the Mapúa Makati Campus, where the School of Information Technology was moved. A spin-off of the School of IT, the Mapúa IT Center, as the Makati Campus is named, was established. The MITC offers 2-year diploma programs that eventually lead into an associate degree ladderized to the bachelor’s degree (4-year) IT courses of Mapúa. Mapúa shifted from the semestral calendar to the Quarterm System. 1999 (MCMXCIX) was a common year starting on Friday, and was designated the International Year of Older Persons by the United Nations. ...

The Malayan Controversy

On February 10, 2005, as a part of Mapúa's plans for elevating from institute to university status, the administration announced the renaming of the institute to "Malayan University" based from the Malayan Insurance Company of the Yuchengcos. But while waiting to become eligible for university status, the name "Malayan Colleges" will be used and the name "Mapúa Institute of Technology" will be retained for the College of Engineering, Architecture and IT. This move became very unpopular with the students and the alumni. On February 14, the students protested outside the campus where Muralla Street at Intramuros was filled with Mapúa students clad in black shirts protesting against the decision of the administration and criticized them for not consulting the students before making such a decision. This event would go down in history of Mapúa as the "Black Valentine" protest. Despite the efforts of the students, faculty and alumni against the decision, the Board of Trustees and the CHED have approved the name change. Currently, most documents issued by Mapúa contains the following end note: "Malayan Colleges operating under the name of Mapúa Institute of Technology".

Recent developments

Mapúa opened the San Lorenzo Ruiz School of Health Sciences and provided Nursing programs at the Makati Campus on July 2004. In 2005, the contract of the Mapúa High School in Doroteo Jose had expired and was closed on March. The Mapúa Institute of Technology started the construction of the new Malayan High School of Science in Pandacan, Manila which is set to open in June 2006 and will specialize in programs related to science and technology.

Innovations

  • Mapúa was the first institute in the Philippines to feature a magnetic ID card system which they call "CARDINAL Plus" which stands for CARD and Integrated Network Access Log-in Plus. It is a two-piece plastic PVC card with a microchip and antenna inserted in between. The CARDINAL Plus functions not only as an identification card but acts as a Library card as well. It also has the capability to store student logs, grades, guidance records, schedules, and more. Other schools such as De La Salle University adopted the magnetic ID system later on.
  • Mapúa features a 24-7 Wireless Internet for students with its "BISHOP" (Broadband IP Systems Hotspots for On-the-go People) service. BISHOP makes good use of the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) technology, and operates on the 802.11b and 802.11g Wi-Fi standards. Data transfer varies from 11-54 megabits per second (Mbit/s) depending on the wireless LAN card or the number of online users. Although the service is free of charge, students without WLAN cards have the option to rent them from the campus but with a fee.
  • The Institute also offers an online student information, enrollment and load reservation service through its MyMapúa service.
  • Mapúa also has its own special SIM card, the Mapúa Cardinal SIM which is powered by Globe Telecom. The Cardinal SIM contains all the usual features of a regular Globe SIM card with the addition of the MapuaTXT service, which allows students to receive important school announcements on their mobile phones.
