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. 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.
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 toACSAT 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.
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.
