The Technological University of the Philippines (TUP) - Visayas was established in 1977 as one of the three prototype technician institutes/projects of the National Government. TUP-Visayas was then known as the Visayas Technician Institute (VTI).

In 1978, the Philippine College of Arts and Trades (PCAT) in Manila was converted into the Technological University of the Philippines (TUP) and was designated as the apex of technology education. Accordingly, the VTI was placed under the management of the TUP. In 1985, the VTI was renamed into the Technological University of the Philippines – Visayas.

Today, the TUP-Visayas is one of the top providers of engineering education in the country, producing top notchers in the Professional Licensure Examination given by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).
