Also known as “Busko” or DBTC for its institution name, Don Bosco Technical College has been standing for 60 years on 736 General Kalentong Street, Mandaluyong City. Don Bosco Mandaluyong opened as a school aptly named Don Bosco Technical Institute-Mandaluyong on 2 June 1953 with 47 first year high school students. More and more students heard of this different school, with an innovative dual academic and technical curriculum. By now, it offers, elementary and high school education for boys, and its co-educational college courses include five-year courses namely Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering, Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering, Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Bachelor of Science in Architecture; 4-year courses such as
Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurship, Bachelor of Science in Information Technology. The 2-year course, Associate in Computer Technology, is a ladderized program leading to B.S. Computer Science and B.S. Information Technology. For 15-month courses, DBTC also offers Technical Vocational Education and Training.
DBTC is run by the Salesians of St. John Bosco. The order was founded by St. John Bosco, based from the origin of the oratory of St. Francis De Sales, in the town of Sales, Italy. The principles employed by the Salesian priests and brothers are REASON, RELIGION and LOVING KINDNESS. Don Bosco is known for providing education to the youth in order to bring them closer to God by doing positive work, and to avoid idleness.
THE GRADE SCHOOL DEPARTMENT
The Grade School Department (1) educates the young through the development of information literacy and lifelong learning skills to initiate the kids to the competencies needed in this Information and Technology Age; and (2) evangelizes the young to eventually become servant-leaders, empowered and responsible for himself and others in the charism permeated by its founder St. John Bosco.
The Don Bosco Technical College Mandaluyong Grade School Community significantly considers the importance of:
1. Early character formation through the incorporation of experiences instilling values and Christian living grounded in the 3 pillars of the Preventive
System: Reason, Religion and Loving Kindness.
2. A consistent curriculum in the early years of learning particularly in language and reading comprehension that integrates opportunities for
self-expression and making choices.
3. Quality learning that showcases the students' own talents and achievements.
4. Meaningful experiences, in and out of the classroom, which includes exposure to global, social and environmental realities/issues.
THE HIGH SCHOOL DEPARTMENT
The High School Department of Don Bosco Technical College takes off from the Grade School to prepare young people for higher education and for life.
The Department offers a Dual Curriculum - Academic and Technical Programs. The program that the High School offers ideally prepares its students for any academic course that they wish to pursue in College. Its Technical Program which is composed of 6 technical specializations namely: Computer Technology, Mechanical Technology, Electronics Technology, Industrial Drafting Technology, Industrial Drafting Technology and Science and Information Technology, gives an edge to graduates who wish to pursue engineering or a technical course. The human, spiritual, emotional, and moral formation they get makes them ready to face the challenges of the world out there, in a spirit of service and love for others, especially the marginalized members of society.
The College Department opened in 1966 with 33 first year students who began their two-year associate diploma in either Electrical or Mechanical Technology. Government recognition for the complete five-year Mechanical Engineering (ME) and Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE) degrees was obtained in 1973, hence, the change of the name from Don Bosco Technical Institute to Don Bosco Technical College. Since then, the College Department has achieved top-of-the-category and above-national-average performances in the board exams. In 2020, it aims to change its status to become Don Bosco University.
The College Department made history in 2004 with the acceptance of 28 first year females. By going co-ed, Don Bosco Mandaluyong is giving a statement to a world where women are devalued and degraded that men must relate with women as equal in dignity and complementary in their vocation.
This evolution of the character of the College Department from an exclusively male school to a co-educational institution is in preparation for the strategic plan of the department to achieve university status in the year 2020. Along with this are new courses that are being introduced every year besides the engineering courses that Don Bosco Technical College has become well respected for.
At present, the College Department offers 8 programs namely: Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering (BSEcE), Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (BSCpE), Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME), Bachelor of Science in Architecture (BSArchi), Bachelor of Science In Entrepreneurship (BSEntrep), Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT), Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BSCS), and two-year program in Associate in Computer Technology.
