It has three satellite campuses in Porac, Mexico, and Santo Tomas in the province of Pampanga. It is considered the oldest vocational school in east Asia.

History

DHVTSU was established in November 4, 1861 [1] as Escuela de Artes y Oficios de Bacolor, a grammar school, by an Augustinian friar, Fr. Juan P. Zita aided by civic leader Don Felino Gil on land donated by the Suarez family.[2]

On December 9, 2009 at the University Gymnasium, former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo signed Republic Act 9832, converting DHVCAT in Don Honorio Ventura Technological State University (DHVTSU).[3][4][5] Third District of Pampanga Representative Aurelio "Dong" Gonzales, Jr. has suggested the school be elevated to the status of comprehensive university. This would include renaming to Pampanga State University (PamSU).[6]

It offers courses like Bachelor of Science in Business Administration major in Marketing Management and major in Business Economics. The college also offers BS Enterpreneurship, BS Accounting Technology and a five-year course BS Accountancy. The College of Business Studies is headed by Dean Luisito Reyes.[9]

College of Computing Studies

In tracing the roots of the College of Computing Studies, the Institute of Engineering and Architecture then headed by Engr. Rohel S. Serrano (now VP for Administration, Finance and Auxiliary Services), offered the new course Bachelor of Science in Information Technology in the first semester of academic year 2004–2005. With the offering of the new program, the institute changed its name to Institute of Science and Technology. The first curriculum offering of IT course was in accordance with CHED Memorandum Order No. 25, Series of 2001, the Revised Policies and Standard for Information Technology Education.

On December 9, 2009, DHVCAT was converted into DHVTSU thus, the College of Computer Studies was created, the dean of College of Engineering and Architecture, Engr. Reden M. Hernandez was then designated as a concurrent dean. On his term the second revision of the curriculum was initiated in accordance with CHED Memorandum Order No. 53, Series of 2006, Policies and Standards for Information Technology Education (ITE) Programs. In November 30, 2010, the request for authority of University President to enter into a pre-termination agreement with Prince Technology Education was approved under Board Resolution No. 78 Series 2010. With the approval of pre-termination of the agreement, the Computer Education Program (CEP) was created. With the Memorandum No.232 Series 2011 dated November 25, 2011, Arch. Hermel S. Sotiangco was designated as OIC Dean of the College of Computer Studies. A few months later, the university president releases a University Memorandum No. 08 Series 2012 dated August 29, 2012, Arch. Hermel S. Sotiangco was designated as Dean of the College. With the implementation of reforms under his leadership, the College remains strong to find more means of bringing further improvement to the College.

In 2012, the College of Computer Studies found itself expanding with more students with the adoption of CEP. With the adoption of CEP, the college now offers the new programs BS Computer Science and Diploma of Computer Technician. In the first quarter of 2013, the curriculum for Bachelor of Science in Information Technology was reviewed and revitalized for its third revision based on new policies, standards and guidelines from CHED Memorandum Order No. 18, Series of 2008 which has been approved by Academic Council last March 20, 2013.[10]

College of Education

The College of Education started its course offerings in 1957. In July, 1966 the Institute of Industrial Teacher Education had Dr. Wenceslao M. Santos as the head of academic instruction for the first time and Mariano P. Cadiang as head of shop instruction. In 1989, the BSIE program was phased out to give way to the BSED curriculum major in Home Economics and Technology with CHED Order BR# 9, s. 1989. To address the pressing need of schools in the province for more industrial education teachers, the college decided to re-offer BSIE and BSIT major in Shop Technology in 1992 with CHED Order BR# 14, s. 1992. The Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEED) major in Edukasyong Pantahanan at Pangkabuhayan (EPP) was offered in 2002, the same year when Dr. Laurencita N. Villanueva retired as dean after 13 years in service. Dr. Adoracion C. Rubio served as concurrent Dean of the Institute May 2002 until September 11, 2002. Dr. Laura Miriam B. Buenviaje acted as Officer-in-Charge of the Institute from September 12, 2002 to April 14, 2003.

The first batch of Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEED) major in General Education graduated in 2009, four years after the course was offered. Due to the desire of the college to produce mathematically adept, linguistically inclined and highly competitive mathematics and language teachers, Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSED) major in Mathematics was offered in 2003, while Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSED) majors in English and Filipino were offered in 2009. Also, Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEED) major in Preschool Education was offered in 2010-2011. As a proof to its commitment to provide quality education, the college was granted Level 3 accreditation status to its Bachelor of Science in Industrial Education (BSIE) (now Bachelor of Technical Teacher Education (BTTE)) and Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSED) programs on October 16, 2011 by the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP), Inc. whereas the BEEd program was granted Level 1 accreditation status by the same agency on March 1, 2013. With regard to the suggestions of the accreditors given during their visit on October 5, 2007, one was the change of the nomenclature from Institute of Industrial Teacher Education to Institute of Teacher Education.

The college is headed by Dr. Dolores T. Quiambao with Dr. Vicky Pineda-Vital as the assistant sean, Dr. Chona M. Navarro as the chairman of the Bachelor of Secondary Education, Prof. Belisa Y.

Because of its continuous expansion and addition of relevant curriculum programs, the Institute changed its name from Institute of Engineering and Architecture to Institute of Science and Technology as a result of the offering of Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BS Info Tech) at the onset of S.Y. 2004-2005. Responsive to the clamor of the academic community in the offering of in-demand programs, Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Communication Engineering (BS ECE) was offered in the opening of S.Y. 2005-2006. Moreover, to address the emerging requirements for professionals of the fast-growing manufacturing and service industries within the region, Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Fine Arts major in Industrial Design were introduced in S.Y. 2007-2008.[12]
