Farther, Greater 91st Foundation Week: Mapúa's Annual Foundation Week Celebration


Wazzup Pilipinas!

For 91 years, the Mapúa Institute of Technology has been striving willfully to go higher, farther, and greater distances, disregarding any limit as much as possible. Walking down the road to become one of the best schools on the globe, the institute has been evolving technologically to improve its quality of education, and furthermore, to become a good place for students to learn, test themselves, and develop bonds with others. In celebration of this continual goal, the Mapúa Institute of Technology celebrates its 91st founding anniversary this 2016, from January 25 to January 30, with the theme: Farther Greater.

2016's foundation week will employ activities and events that aim to grant enjoyment to the institute's students, and celebrate Mapúa's 91-year-old journey in evolving and moving forward to achieve consistent improvement in education quality.

This year, the School of Multimedia and Visual Arts (SMVA) is in charge of hosting the celebration. Furthermore, in charge of organizing the event are the three primary student governing bodies of the institute: Central Student Council (CSC), Council of Organizations (COO), and Council of Presidents (COP).

For the first day of the celebration, the annual Math Wizard competition will be held at the MIT Gymnasium from 12:00 noon onwards. In addition, an ASEAN seminar regarding engineering and technical professions will be held at the Seminar Room from 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm.
