IBM picks Taguig university for tech education model 3

Global technology firm IBM has picked Taguig City University as the venue to pilot its tech education model, called P-TECH (Pathways in Technology Early College High School), a program that has already been implemented by the company in nine nations. The P-TECH program, first implemented in public schools in New York in 2011, creates a direct path between high school, college, and career by linking the education sector with local firms.
