The 1901 Act No. 74 of the United States Philippines Commission established the Manila Trade School (MTS) near Ateneo de Manila in Intramuros. In 1910, the Manila Trade School was renamed as the Philippine School of Arts and Trades (PSAT), and again in 1959 as the Philippine College of Arts and Trade (PCAT). From 1959 to 1978, PCAT pioneered programs in engineering technology and industrial teacher education. On July 11, 1978, by virtue of Presidential Decree No. 1518, the Philippine College of Arts and Trades was converted into the Technological University of the Philippines.
In 1999 TUP was designated a Center of Excellence in the AIMEICC Working Group on Human Resource Development as certified by the Department of Trade and Industry. In the same year, the University was awarded as a Center of Development (COD) by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) in Electrical Engineering (Category 2), Mechanical Engineering (Category 1), and Civil Engineering (Category 1). In 2002, the Colombo Plan Staff College for Technician Education (CSPC) presented a plaque of recognition to TUP as a Center of Excellence in Graduate Fellowship Programme for Technological, Technical, Industrial and Vocational Education. The Association of Overseas Technical Scholarship (AOTS) based in Japan awarded TUP as a Center of Excellence.

College of EngineeringEdit
College of Industrial TechnologyEdit
The College of Industrial Technology traces its roots from the Technical Department of the then Philippine School of Arts and Trades adapted in 1937 and is the center of industrial technology education in the University.
College of Industrial EducationEdit
The roots of the College of Industrial Education (CIE) can be traced in 1929 when the first formal two-year Industrial Teacher Education was offered at the then Philippine School of Arts and Trades. At present, the college serves as the foundation of teacher education in the University. The BS in Industrial Education program at CIE has been offered since 1951 as a four-year teacher education for elementary and secondary levels.
College of Architecture and Fine ArtsEdit
The roots of the College of Architecture and Fine Arts (CAFA) can be traced from the drawing subjects required in all courses offered by the University since 1907. The college has been a consistent contributor in the University's achievements and recognition in various art competitions both local and abroad. The CAFA also produces top passers in the Licensure Examination given by the Professional Regulation Commission.
College of ScienceEdit
The 1978 promotion of the college to university status brought about comprehensive changes in the organizational set-up. To carry out its tasks, the University had to change its one-college structure to a system composed of six colleges, one of which is the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS). The CAS was formally created in 1979.
College of Liberal ArtsEdit
The College of Liberal Arts split from the College of Applied Arts and Sciences and was formerly a full service college.
TUP Taguig was established in 1977 as one of the three prototype technician institutes in the Philippines. On January 3, 1985, the BOR passed and adopted Resolution No. 100 s. 1985 changing the name of the Manila Technician Institute to TUP Taguig campus. TUP Taguig offers programs in the pre-baccalaureate, baccalaureate, and masters level.
TUP Cavite was established through Board Resolution No. 1985, s. 1979. The campus offers 3-year technology courses and baccalaureate and master's degree programs.
The intervention of the University in TUP Visayas campus started with the Letter of Instruction (LOI) No. 79 issued by President Ferdinand E. Marcos on December 28, 1978 authorizing TUP to administer the operation of the then Visayas Technician Institute. The campus offers 3-year technology courses, baccalaureate degree, and master's degree in Technology.
The Technological University of the Philippines in Lopez, Quezon held its first graduation rites in 2015.
Integrated Research Training CenterEdit
The Integrated Research and Training Center (IRTC) is a Japan International Cooperation Agency established center under the care of the Technological University of the Philippines. IRTC provides updating training and meaningful research results towards the continuous development of engineering programs and practices.
The Center provides facilities in the following areas: material engineering and testing, energy engineering, automation, communications, educational multimedia technology, manufacturing and production engineering. IRTC is the research, training and extension arm of the Technological University of the Philippines. It also provides services to industries and higher education institutions, primarily to the state universities and colleges.
Governance and administrative structureEdit
The key stakeholders of TUP make up its Board of Regents, chaired by the Commissioner of the Commission of Higher Education and vice-chaired by the University President. The members of the Board include the Chairman of the House Committee on Higher and Technical Education, Chairman on Senate Committee on Education and Culture, the Undersecretary for R&D of the Department of Science and Technology, the Assistant Director General from the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), two representatives from the private sector, and the three presidents of the federations of associations in TUP composed of the Alumni Association, the Faculty Association, and the University Student Government.
