The Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation Program (ETEEAP)is an alternative education delivery mode promulgated through Executive Order 330, which promotes access to continuing quality higher education. It is an effective system of academic equivalency and accreditation of prior learning from relevant work experiences and formal/non-formal educational training. Deputized higher educational institutions are authorized to conduct competency based evaluation and award appropriate degrees to deserving individuals. This is realized through the establishment of equivalency competence standards and a comprehensive assessment system through written tests, interview skills demonstration and other creative assessment and methodologies.
The Technological University of the Philippines (TUP) is a state university and as a center of excellence in technical, technological education and training provides higher and advanced programs to develop globally competitive graduates for education, industry and related sectors through instruction, research, extension and production for a sustainable future and desired quality of life. The University offers varied academic programs and curricular offerings from baccalaureate programs in engineering, industrial education, architecture, computer science, applied science and technology to graduate studies in industrial education, engineering science, technology education and management. TUP was among the seven(7) HEIs in the National Capital Region (NCR) deputized to implement ETEEAP in 1998.
The TUP ETEEAP commits itself to contribute to the development of globally competitive teachers, technologists, and engineers through academic equivalency and accreditation of relevant learning and experiences gained in the workplace.
