The Quezon City Polytechnic University (Pamantasang Politeknikal ng Lungsod Quezon in Filipino and commonly referred to as QCPU, QC Poly or KYUSI Politeknik) is a Local university founded by Quezon City government. QCPU was established on March 1, 1994 and formerly known as the Quezon City Polytechnic.

History[edit]

The Quezon City Polytechnic University came into existence on March 1, 1994 by virtue of the City Council Ordinance No. SP-171. The institution was created to undertake the training of skilled workers in response to the manpow¬er requirement by industry and business establishments within the City. The organization of the Polytechnic as a local government educational institution included the old Skills and Training Center.

The Three Year Technician Curriculum was introduced in the 1994-1995 designed to develop highly competent technicians for industry in the areas of Automotive Technology, Electrical Technology and Refrigeration and Air-Condi¬tioning Technology, Fashion Technology. The following school year, Electronics Technology, Mechanical Technology, Computer Technology and the industry-led pilot course Boiler Technology were added.

The QCP established its reputation among local government units as a show window and model technology-based institution paving the way for its recognition by the Technical Education Skills and Development Authority (TESDA) and for developing a strong alliance with the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA). On August 20, 1997, the Polytechnic was enhanced into a University through City Council Ordinance No. SP-544, S-97.

The leadership of former Quezon City Mayor Feliciano “Sonny” Belmonte saw meaningful access to higher education. Starting 2005-2006, the University has started offering degree programs. Initially, the courses are BS in Entrepre¬neurial Management, BS in Information Technology, and BS in Industrial Engi¬neering.

SP-1945, s. 2009, otherwise known as “An Ordinance Amending Ordinance No. SP-1030, s. 2001 (or the QCPU Charter)”, passed by the Quezon City Council, grants the Quezon City Polytechnic University semi-autonomy as to its fiscal management and control over its operations, budgeting and reporting requirements.

Under the headship of Mayor Herbert Bautista, the Quezon City Polytechnic University receives his full support and supervision, as to the implementation of the City Governments projects and undertakings relating to the operations of the University, being the City Government’s Chief Executive Officer, concurrent to his being the Chair of the University’s Board of Regents.
