The history of the College of Technology started in 1974 under Board Resolution No. 307 series of 1974 in the administration of Prof. Jack Smith. Its curricular offerings were patterned on pre-engineering courses since it was under the wing of College of Engineering.
In 1978, it was revised under the Board Resolution No. 479 s- 1978 and created the 2-year Farm Technician Technology and 2-year Trade Technician Curriculum (purely vocational).Due to the continuous collaboration with prospective clients, the administration saw the need to enhance the program, the 2-year Trade Technical Education with academic subjects were established.
In 1984, Board Resolution No. 80 s- 1984 approved the total revision of the Technical Vocational School Program – Diploma in Technology Curriculum including a 2-year course with academic subjects was formulated with different areas of specialization. In 1995, under the administration of Dr. Rodolfo Y. Baking, the School of Technical and Vocational Education was converted into the College of Technology through an administrative order.
Also, in the same year, Board Resolution No. 2 s- 1995 authorized the conversion of Bachelor of Technology (BT) into Bachelor of Industrial Technology (BIT). In 1996, the College of Technology moved to its new home at San Isidro Campus together with the College of Architecture.
In 1998, the Bachelor of Industrial Technology (BIT) was renamed as Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology (BSIT) during an Academic Council Meeting of the university but only the BSIT-EIT and BSIT-MPT were approved by the board as per Resolution No. 9 s-1999. During this time, the first accreditation of the college was held and obtained the candidate status awarded by the Accrediting Agency Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP).
