College of Arts and Sciences Policy and Guidelines for On-the-Job Training (OJT) Program Overview As stipulated in the CMO No. 53. Series of 2006: “Internship/OJT/Practicum is an immersion program wherein the students will have the chance and opportunity to be with the IT industry. This program is important because the students will have the chance to apply the skills, knowledge and attitude learned in the school and at the same time the opportunity to experience the corporate environment.

Internship is a requirement for the BSIT and BSIS program but optional for the BSCS program. Students are eligible to enrol the internship program after completing the 80% of the total number of units in the curriculum.
