STI College, formerly known as Systems Technology Institute, is the largest network of for-profit information technology based colleges in the Philippines. This private college system offers a curriculum including business studies, computer science, education, engineering and health care. The acronym STI has been declared as an orphan initialism after their name change in 2006.

STI uses a trimestral calendar as opposed to the typical semestral collegiate education program mostly used by Philippine universities. It has branches all over the Philippines and claims to be the second largest IT-based educational institution in Asia.[3]

STI Academic Center at University Parkway Drive in Bonifacio Global City, Metro Manila.

STI College is wholly owned by the STI Education Services Group, Inc., a subsidiary of the STI Education Systems Holdings, Inc. of Dr. Eusebio "Yosi" H. Tanco, PhD from the Tanco Group (parent company of STI Education Systems Holdings, Inc.). Tanco also serves as the majority and principal owner of the STI Investments Inc., another subsidiary of the STI Education Systems Holdings, Inc.[4]


STI was organized in 1983, when entrepreneurs Augusto C. Lagman, Herman T. Gamboa, Benjamin A. Santos and Edgar H. Sarte set up the Systems Technology Institute to train people in programming and IT. At first there were two schools, and now there are more than 100.

Programs include: information and communications technology, engineering, health care, business & management, hospitality and tourism management.[5]

But started last 2006, the acronym of STI no longer stands as Systems Technology Institute because it offers not just the school of Technology and Sciences, but also with Health, Arts, Managements, Businesses, Hospitality, and Culinary school, albeit that up to this present time though, IT and CS courses are still the largest population in the institution. The initials STI therefore has been orphaned and remains a pseudo-acronym.

In 2002, STI obtained a majority share in De los Santos College to create the DLS-STI College of Health Professions. In 2006, they acquired a stake in the De Los Santos Medical Center, now known as De Los Santos - STI Medical Center.[6]

On October 2013, STI Health Professionals, Inc., a subsidiary of STI Education Systems Holdings, Inc. and operator of De Los Santos-STI, purchased Makati Medical Center College from Medical Doctors, Inc. through its sister school PWU.
