Dean’s Message

The College of Information Informatics (COI) is dedicated to solving problems at the intersection of information, technology, and society. Today’s society is experiencing a rapid shift from a traditional production-driven society to an information-driven one where every aspect of social and corporate activity is processed more quickly and precisely through the utilization of computers and networks. In light of this, our curriculum challenges students to combine technological knowledge with skills in business, computer science, entertainment multimedia computing, engineering, mathematics, psychology, sociology and other fields. Their knowledge is complemented by an emphasis on teamwork and communication.

Our faculty and students are engaged in cutting-edge, multidisciplinary research that aims to harness the full potential of a data-driven culture to address a wide range of issues affecting humanity. The goal is to improve strategic decision making, open up new channels of communication and collaboration, and ultimately revolutionize how people interact, live, work, and play.

Whether you are a prospective or current student, a potential partner, or a colleague from another discipline or institution, I invite you to explore our website to learn about the different learning modalities and diverse degree programs offered by the college.

  • BMMA
    • Nature of the Field of Study
      Grounded on design, technology and the visual arts, Multimedia Arts is a field of interdisciplinary study geared towards creative and effective storytelling and expression through the convergence of digital media technologies, forms and practices. The Bachelor of Multimedia Arts aligns itself to the rapid convergence of media technologies and practices by developing conceptual, technical, aesthetic and professional competencies for effective, critical and innovative storytelling across a range or combination of media forms for various purposes. It recognizes that digital media collapse different modes of expression and communication networks that allows for an interface of the local and global, the national and transnational. Thus, the program aims to create competent digital artists and communicators capable of disseminating a national idiom whereby Philippine cultural contexts, identities and formations are articulated in global and transnational discourse. To meet this objective, the program must necessarily be: multimedia in orientation, i.e. focusing on the specific ways that digital media may be harnessed for storytelling and expression in combination with or in relation to other media forms; interdisciplinal, i.e. harnessing perspectives in the humanities, the social sciences and, when applicable, behavioral sciences and business in order to optimize the nuances of multimedia communication in particular contexts as a precondition for its effective application; and grounded in theory and practice, i.e. recognizing that the effective practice of multimedia arts is greatly based on insights gleaned from both scholarship and application in the creative industries. These qualities make the Bachelor of Multimedia Arts a uniquely relevant discipline in Philippine tertiary education.
    • Program Goals
      The Bachelor of Multimedia Arts program is designed to respond to the requirement in the discipline for graduates to be familiar with a wide range of media forms; and to provide the theoretical foundations and practical experience to develop skills in creative storytelling and expression for various purposes and contexts. The goal of the program is to develop within students the knowledge and skills that will enable them to communicate effectively, critically and creatively across a range of new media technologies and forms, and to develop multimedia projects with these qualities, for various purposes. To develop his or her knowledge and skills, students of the Multimedia Arts program will undergo a curriculum of courses marked by the following core competencies:
      • Conceptual, i.e. the ability to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of multimedia theories, genres and various approaches in applications of multimedia.
      • Technical, i.e. the ability to demonstrate technical proficiency in the use of appropriate hardware and software required in the production of multimedia projects.
      • Aesthetic, i.e. the ability to exhibit creativity and innovative thinking in the design and production of multimedia projects.
      • Professional, i.e. the ability to engage professionally and ethically in multimedia practice in the creative industries and other community contexts.
    • Specific Professions/careers/occupations for graduates

      Graduates of this program may find employment as creative directorsart directorsvideo and audio production professionalsdigital artists;

      • animators
      • multimedia designers for various applications such as
