The information technology industry is one of the most dynamic and lucrative in the world. The potential for innovation, development, and improvement is boundless. It also lets us devise ways to better people’s and communities’ everyday lives. However, the industry demands more than just technical know-how. We need people who can communicate well, work well together, develop innovative solutions, and take the lead. This is why iPhiTech, a pioneer in the IT solutions industry, has joined forces in partnership with the University of Baguio School of Information Technology.
The shared goal of this collaboration is to help students and teachers reach their full potential as information technology (IT) professionals and innovators. It also aspires to establish a reliable information technology network in Baguio City and beyond.
