Informatics

Welcome

The invasion of Information Technology has brought us to a new generation of hardware and software programs that revolutionized the learning process. At our fingertips, we can now access the world’s treasure of information. Distance education is readily available through modern technology. Instant information is now readily accessible via the information highway.  The world’s libraries and research centers are easily accessed and used at our own disposal. Our workforce, dominated by the youth, is driving the success of a world-class Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry. Unquestionably, this industry tops in the generation of high-income jobs and significantly contributes to our national economy. Many IT professionals are being described worldwide as excellent in work ethics and are extremely talented.

To cope with the demands of global competitiveness and to keep pace with the ever-increasing rate of change in information and communication technologies, the new generation of IT professionals must be prepared to embrace the latest technologies.

Aldersgate College through its Information Technology program, recognizes its role in the training and preparation of the youth to become the technological leaders of tomorrow. Our goal is to prepare our graduates to be problem solvers, project leaders, communicators, and ethical citizens of a global community, geared with passion for professionalism, dedication, leadership, and excellence in fulfilling his dream to be a part of the growing and dynamic world.

Graduates of the School of Informatics in both the 4-year degree in Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT) and the 2-year Associate in Computer Technology (ACT), are now gainfully employed in private and government agencies and corporations in capacities related to their training at Aldersgate College.

Grounded in our commitment to quality education, we offer our students a rich educational experience where research is an integral part, coupled with a diverse range of curricular and co-curricular activities that equip our students the necessary expertise, critical thinking skills, and competencies.

Vision

The School of Informatics shall become an educational innovator conducting trailblazing researches; implementing pioneering development projects; and providing specialized training to local and international students and professionals in the field of Information and Communications Technology (ICT).

Mission

The School of Informatics will endeavor to develop ICT professionals who are creative, disciplined, and competent to undertake multi-national and multi-cultural tasks and projects.

In this connection, the School of Informatics shall provide curricula that are inter-disciplinary  and  recognizes the need to integrate human, technology, information, and managerial resources to solve institutional and business problems.

Curricular Strategy

In School year 2010-11, the School of Informatics was spinned-off from the College of Business and Information Technology to integrate the teaching of ICT with the research and development programs and resources of Aldersgate Computer Institute (ACI). This integration   requires that all faculty members be actively involved in ICT research and development. As a result, the School of Informatics is able to deliver enriched learning through in-school synthesis of theories and best industry practices.
